Thank God for electricity

Certain environmentalists are asking everyone to turn off their lights between 8:30 and 9:30 pm local time tonight to make a statement about the need to reduce emissions of the pollutant plant food carbon dioxide. Anthony Watts summed up my view of Earth Hour in his most recent post: Earth Hour in North Korea a stunning success.

Why do I suspect that most of the proponents of Earth Hour are also sympathetic to the ideals that justify Communist/Socialist regimes? And why do I suspect that it's not a coincidence?

Instead of turning off the lights tonight, I'm going to turn on every electric gadget I have (within reason) for that hour. It will be my tribute to Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, and Nikola Tesla.

p.s.: All of the modern health care that the Dems will eventually take control of is fully dependent on electricity. How's your carbon footprint now?

Right on, Jody!

And may I suggest you check out a certain webcam for our defiance against the enviro-whackos and this administration.

The new flags are up a flying proud!
