Earth Hour

Earth Hour:
Edit: I have gone around the Sun 6 years since my last post on the subject. Nothing much has changed. Except that I would have punctuated this post with a few f$cks. Because that is how many fewer f$cks I give to this concept of Earth Day / Hour. The Earth is an accident and if we continue to think we could damage this by human action, that is the highest form of arrogance that one could conceive. We came here much later than the Earth formed out of hot gases. We will vanish much before the Earth will. To think anything else is nemesis.

Edit2: I seem to be ok - skeptically though - with the concept so long as we redefine the objective and state what we actually mean - that we are trying to save  ourselves. If ever. That the so called noble cause of saving the Earth is a charade.

PS: A tiny lump of impure carbon and water impotently crawling on a small and unimportant planet. This is how Russell defined a human being. Even this small and unimportant planet is infinitely more powerful than what we are and can ever be.
