Earth Hour

Seriously? SERIOUSLY???

To show governments that the people are voting for Mother Earth??? Wow, we've got cool governments rights here because they will listen, cos they're Obama cool....

I guess they will listen won't they? Just because a couple of idealists and some celebrities got together to turn off their kitchen lights for an hour...

SIGH.................

No, gentle folk of the Shire, Governments will be knocking back Chivas in some night club with Big Business. Business rules the world. NOT idealistic hippies. The very fact that that Malaysian WWF clown even EXPECTED 5 million people to sign up showed just how much he knows about his own country. How much did he get as of last Monday? 40,000??? You're a little way off dude... There are supposedly 4 million Manchester United fans in the country and 300 million worldwide. You shoulda just done a deal with the club to get all their fans around the world to turn off their lights instead of getting Malaysian 'celebrities'(I got an album, a movie out, a book and oh yeah if you need an emcee I'm free every other Tuesdays...)

When you sitting there masterminding your latest PR stunt, somewhere a developer just paid off a local councilman to de-gazette some reserved forest to turn in a luxury resort. When you were on radio telling people that signing up was symbolic and that they really didn't need to switch off all their lights, some factory just dumped some animal waste into a river that leads into a key water catchment area.....

So what if you turned off your air conditioning and vibrators? Its not like you're going to continue that everyday? It's just a farcical show. Just another reason to get together for a fad. Malaysians gather to collect money for Palestineans when folks in the rubbers estates live below the poverty line, they give to World Vision to sponsor a kid on Pluto but in our very states, state orphanages need more help that they can get....

If you must, turn off your lights at 8.30pm tomorrow. No harm in showy idealistic exhibitionism to feel part of a naive and idealistic charade.

lights are normally switched off anyways in the evening as i need total darkness to watch me 50-inch telly alongside me surround-sound stereo system, whilst multi-tasking in surfing the net.

if you get lonely in the darkness u can call me on my iphone that is likely being on charge at that time.

I think it's meant to be switching off EVERYTHING, not just the lights.

At least in East Malaysia (Especially Sabah, and especially Sabah's East Coast), the government practices 'forced conservation' almost on a weekly basis (almost on a daily basis in Sabah's East Coast) by way of power outage... :/

Probably an endangered animal got entangled in the electrical lines and caused the power outage?

Nex said...

Don't know about the endangered part, but its definitely an animal, suspected to be of the porcine family. Common name: SESB

Anyway I'm not gonna turn everything off and sit in the dark sweating my ass off. I already do that often enough...
