Oh, how wonderfully generous.

Earth hour.


I mean, wow.

Another example of world-class attention-whoring 'Oooh! Oooh! Look at me! I'm, like, soooooooo important.'

Of course, if it were that important that the lights go out for an hour, they'd be pressing for it to be done at half-four on a Wednesday afternoon in January, not the night before the bloody clocks go forward, so it obviously isn't THAT important, is it?

Another empty gesture to let everyone feel like they're making a difference.

Predictably the BBC are all over it like a 70's powder blue suit on a Nigerian visa applicant.

"It gives everyone the chance to have some fun, to organise their own events, and at the same time be part of an incredibly powerful global message to world leaders of the concern we all share about climate change."

Oh! Rapture! Wherever would we be without the benign and guiding hand of the WWF giving us, us, mere mortals, the chance to have some fun? I'm completely incapable of having fun without some jumped up self important bunch of panda botherers telling me how to do it. Not only that, but they're going to let me organise my own event! I need to lie down, the power is going to my head.

Look, arseholes, we do not all share your concerns about climate change. So, in future, when tempted to speak for me, why not try keeping your fucking mouths shut?

I liked it better when the WWF was all about Steve Austin wrapping a folding chair around the Undertaker's head.

Dear Snowolf

I noticed the event at 9.19 pm so immediately showed my opinion on the matter - all lights in the house were turned on, including those I never or rarely turn on.

I made up for the delay by forgetting to turn them off until about 1 am.

I made my point that civilised society is about enlightenment, not endarkenment. Those who turned their lights off to save a few watt hours to demonstrate their subservience to greeny fads will be burning them for the next year.

Those extra lights that I turned on to celebrate the benefits of technology and energy will be off for the next year.

I'll be saving more energy than they will.
