Human Achievement Hour tonight, turn your lights on!

Human Achievement Hour 2010

As mentioned earlier, unlike many, I am not an extremist.

I am sure there would be many people enjoy staying in the dark, being unsafe and unsecure tonight, I would suggest an alternative - ‘Human Achievement Hour’ instead.

Yes, it's damn simple, simply enjoy the 21st century modern lifestyle by turning your lights on at the particular hour - 8.30pm Saturday 27th March 2010, same time as the Earth Hour.

We can do more for the environment by using energy efficient appliances and gadgets, as well as products designed with environment in mind.
I fail to see what can actually be achieved by switching off the lights (except reducing the electricity bill by a few cents) and having so-called ‘romantic’ time with candles. Electricity would still being generated (during the hour), and more oxygens would be burned and more carbon dioxide (CO2) would be created from the burning of candles... Getting something energy efficient is the key!

I think what you've failed to realize is that it's a symbolic thing, rather than one intended to save energy. The Human Achievement Hour just seems to yell "SPITE!" at the top of its lungs, though.

That I am not going to disagree completely. However, the Earth Hour extremists would make unnecessary fuss on amount of energy saved during the hour. They, without a doubt, have done so since 2007.
As for the celebration of the Human Achievement Hour, I switched on all the lights I can access easily. It looked nice with all the lights on.
