miniflea: They even admit that it is a symbolic gesture, not one that actually does anything. I sympathize with their goals but nonsense like this is counter-productive I think. Empty gestures and idiotic "raising awareness" don't help your cause.

And what is the message here anyway? Civilization is inherently harmful? Energy consumption is going nowhere but up and asking people pretty please to cut back isn't going to change that. What they should be doing is encouraging development of cleaner energy.


If Russia, China, France and the USA are all participating with their biggest landmarks... who exactly are they making aware? Is there a secret government that rules all those countries who doesn't know about the global warming scam yet?

If global warming were real, this would make it worse. The fact that they're willing to do events like this proves that they don't even believe the crap they're spouting off to people. Let me know when Al Gore starts using a bike instead of a private jet and a 20 hummer convoy.

Once you realize that these types of people are concerned *only* with feeling good about themselves, it makes perfect sense.

Smug, self-congratulatory WWF types. I'd have turned on a few incandescent bulbs, myself, just to give the finger to Al Gore and his unholy brood, if I had cared enough to notice these look-at-me-aren't-I-hip assholes.
/Yeah, woke up a little too soon today.
