Why earth hour is a load of bollocks!

Earth Hour

This year, earth hour is 28th March and again we will not be participating.  What a load of bollocks!

Last year I wrote a post on why we would not be participating in Earth Hour.  You can read that here.

If you are participating this year, ask yourself why?

What are you doing for the other 23 hours of the day on the 28th to save power, reduce emissions and waste?

What about the other 167 hours that week, or the other 8764 hours of 2015?

This isn’t something that can be fixed in an hour.  This is something that every single person on the planet needs to be doing every hour of every single day.

Whether you “believe” in climate change or not, I think we can all agree that pollution is terrible and natural resources are being used at an alarming rate.

So what are you doing about it?   Forget government, they are a bunch of useless fuckwits.  But you, Joe Blogger reader have the power in your hands to actually do something about it – to reduce your impact on the planet.

Change starts with you, right now, right here.  Do something about it!

  1. I love that you called it bollocks. 🙂 Maybe Earth Hour should be the one hour of the year that you get to metaphorically “take a shit on” the Earth by being as wasteful with electricity as you can stand. The other 8764 of the year’s hours you will be responsible with them.

    That sounds like a better, more entertaining scenario to me!

    • Haha I don’t even think I could do that 🙂

      • Hahaha, I could! :p just for the sh*ts and giggles. To bask in the glory of being a ‘Murican. Every light in the house turned on… computers, phones plugged in and everything playing a different pandora radio station, watching a movie on the tv… baking something senseless… microwave too, if possible… might as well wash and dry a couple loads of laundry…. etc. As long as you don’t blow a fuse… then you’re alright.

        There might be a rush on fuses during that hour! O.o”

      • Alternatively, being the sock mistress, you could hook yourself up to a battery and scoot around on rugs all day to generate electricity. Think about it…

  2. Glad I’m not paying the power bill after all that! Don’t forget to run the dryer, washing machine and do the vacuuming too – might as well have a clean house at the end of it. 🙂
