Turning Back the Clock

Today some people are observing “Earth Hour”, when lights are switched off for an hour so that some well-meaning souls can show how committed they are to parading their piety saving the planet.

So just what is the message that Earth Hour is sending out?

For the sake of argument, we’ll suppose that one completely buys in to the man-made global warming theory. Surely the only conclusion to be drawn from the “Earth Hour” exercise is that the only way to reverse climate change is to revert back to the dark ages (literally) and that employing science, engineering and plain common sense to more efficiently use our limited resources plays little part in tackling the “problem”.

Suffice to say, the energy-saving light bulbs in my own home will remain switched on this evening.
