UPDATE: Apparently, the novelty of 'earth hour' has worn off. Hat tip: WattsUpWithThat
Apparently, something called "Earth Hour" is occurring this evening at 7:30pm Central. It is sponsored by the "big environment" group, the World Wildlife Fund, last seen on this blog distorting the science pertaining to Arctic ice and polar bears.
Anyway, we are supposed to turn out our lights to 'honor' the planet or something like that. According to Wikipedia, the Cartoon Network will "go dark" (i.e., go off the air) during Earth Hour. That seems about right: To me, it is a Mickey Mouse event.
I love this retort from Dr. Ross McKitrick who is an economist from Canada's University of Guelph.
