I hope we all celebrated Earth Power Hour in the most carbon-burningest (yes, I did just invent a word) way possible!
Casa Ash celebrated by turning on:
- air conditioning;
- the lights;
- three computers;
- three TVs;
- four freezers;
- two fridges;
- washing machine;
- dryer on;
- doors and windows open; and
- a 4WD idling in the driveway with the CD player, headlights and air con on, although this was turned off after 15 minutes.

I am constantly amazed (sorry for the trite phrase, but . . .) at the truths people expose without meaning to do so. One could not find any action more representative of the world the greens would lead us into than to turn off everything that makes our lives possible. They would have all of us live like North Koreans — rather, die like North Koreans. Or like a group of primitives living on an island or in the middle of a jungle — a group whose life expectancy is in the 30s, if they are lucky enough to survive childhood. When I hear someone talk about saving the earth, my first thought is “For what?”
Are we really going to sit by and allow these people to wreck everything that not only makes life possible, but worth the living?

This eco-crap is turning up in ESL textbooks now, too. Look, I’m sure no one here wants to pollute just for the sake of polluting. I’m sure we all put our rubbish in bins. But when it leads to anti-progress, then it has gone too far. Good thing is, even the Europeans are starting to build more nuke reactors (am sure we all saw that on Blair’s today).
