Human Achievement Hour – Saturday 7.30pm

By Ralph 27 March 2009 46

This Saturday at 7.30pm, a movement of people, including Canberrans such as Ralph, will be celebrating the inaugural Human Achievement Hour.

Human Achievement Hour seeks to honour the success of modern civilisation.

You can celebrate Human Achievement Hour by enjoying some of the many innovations that have freed society from darkness, cured disease, improved nutrition and raised our choices and consumption possibilities. We should never feel guilty, or apologise for our happiness and success.

Eat some packaged food, drive, use your microwave, your dishwasher, or watch movies, for example.

More information can be found here and here.

I’ll skip Earth Hour and join a Facebook group instead.

If that doesn’t work, nothing will.

Why is there a need to raise awareness about climate change (previously known as global warming ’til it got cool) when we are constantly lectured that the debate is over and that there is a consensus among scientists over the world that we are approaching a tipping point due to irreversible global warming (aka climate change) because we drive cars?

Did all the hippies from the darkness last year forget after they turned their lights back on?

It would make more sense if hippies held their breath for an hour instead.

Reacts quite angrily to reason and logic.

I wouldn’t mistake my mixture of contempt and pity for you for anger, Ralph. I’m yet to see any reason or logic from you, or any answers to my reasonable questions. Like I said, you got nuthin’.

I think that burning parrafin candles (made from petrochemicals), which are less efficient that incandescent light globes, to symbolise cutting back on emissions, is inane.

My Earth Hour candles will be made from pure whale oil, and sit in little holders carved from baby seal skulls, atop candlesticks made from Mother Teresa’s thighbones.

right. hope you have fun with that, skid.

Jakez – do you really think everyone else but you is stupid, or are you counting yourself in the 99% who miss the point of earth hour?

I don’t think missing the point of something makes you stupid sepi. It was clearly a hyperbole though so I’m not sure what you are trying to achieve.
