Toronto and other cities worldwide experienced this global act of collective obedience to the global warming crusaders and globalists called “Earth Hour”.
My basic reaction to this is very simple – if it’s good to turn off the lights and electrical power for one hour, then the logic of that ethical rule implies it is good to just shut off the power all the time. Just shut down human civilization completely. Turn off the lights!
Because that’s the basic message of these propagandists who are really advocating global controls on human behavior.
Their message is that human beings are a waste of space and that our comfort and well-being doesn’t matter. What kind of message is that to send to children?
And if these people persist in not recognizing the concept of property rights and self-determination, then their ideas are worthless in preventing genuine pollution.
They’re not even talking about genuine pollution. They just want to make people believe that all carbon gases produced by the burning of fuels are pollutants, and this is a complete lie. Carbon dioxide is what we breath out and is used by plants.
One of their propaganda films is David Attenborough’s “The Truth About Climate Change” (link to a segment) which has no convincing evidence that global warming is caused by human beings – even with this graph they’re showing. I do not believe the green graph because I believe it leaves out the activity of the sun.
At least it has David Attenborough’s voluntary individual choice approaches at the end of the documentary (you’d have to see the whole thing), but of course they are trivial aesthetic acts of self-deprivation. And I reject the assumption that there is some sort of problem that needs to be solved. What is wrong with the earth warming anyway? How do they know there are going to be huge disasters? People will adapt better if they were left alone!
But of course governments are going to impose involuntary “solutions” and costs on ordinary people – not voluntary solutions. I think this is David Attenborough’s essentially good nature coming through despite his succumbing to their propaganda or whatever pressures they put on him.
The whole documentary I saw on CBC TV is substance-less. Just a vapid pile of crap. A total waste of time for anyone trying to understand what the arguments are of those who advocate global controls on human activity.
And the part that is completely shameful is the graphical representation of carbon dioxide as a black soot piling up over peoples’ houses as they consume electricity. Many people who are educated in basic science may take it for granted, and most people in the public will be surprised to hear this, but carbon dioxide is an invisible non-polluting gas that is entirely natural.
Governments also attempt to associate the greenhouse effect of non-polluting carbon dioxide (which is much less than water vapor) with what people ordinarily consider as pollution.
That’s the level these people play at. That’s what their “earth-loving”(?) ethics amounts to. Lying to tax-payers so they can pillage us more.
Yes, those who went along with “earth hour” are truly demonstrating their status as slaves.
Guess what? We need more power. We need more power-production. We need more economic opportunities. More competition. An end to institutional government-protected monopolies. An end to government intervention in the economy. More products. More happiness. More of everything. Lower taxes. Less inflation. More saving. Sound currencies – choice in currencies. For all that, we need more freedom and more respect for property rights, more legal rights for ordinary people – to protect us from the effects of new technologies run amok by the way – which the global warming crowd couldn’t care less about! More respect for human autonomy. We need to get central-planning fascist governments under control. And we need people really in control of their lives instead of following along with these tyrannical agendas.
