That Time of the Year

Uhhhhh Earth Hour. Then Ross McKitrick sums up my attitude with this Earth Hour: Why I will leave my lights on

I abhor Earth Hour. Abundant, cheap electricity has been the greatest source of human liberation in the 20th century.

If, after all this, we are going to take the view that the remaining air emissions outweigh all the benefits of electricity [...] then we are setting up unspoiled nature as an absolute, transcendent ideal that obliterates all other ethical and humane obligations.
