We are informed here at Rancho LawDog of an upcoming something called "Earth Hour".
According to sources, "Earth Hour" consists of turning your lights off on 28 MAR 2009 from 2030 to 2130 hours Local Time to -- and I quote: "Raise awareness of global climate change".
Sweet shivering Shiva -- do we really need our awareness raised any more about "Global Climate Change"? My paw to Freyja, you can't turn on the TeeVee without getting (metaphorically speaking) slapped across the mouth by someone yapping about "Gloooo-bal Warming!"
The last time it was an advert featuring a series of terminally cute kids doing someones damnedest to inflict crushing guilt -- and a nasty case of diabetes -- upon any susceptible adult vis a vis "Climate Change".
And the sodding National Geographic Channel should just go ahead and change their name to the National Global Warming Channel -- because Goddess have mercy on your poor soul if you venture over to "NatGeo" expecting anything other than the verbal equivalent of a kick to the wedding tackle about your failure to prevent "Gloooo-bal Warming".
Raising any more awareness about Climate Change is about like handing a jar of petrol to some poor bloke running down the street with his hair on fire.
Plus, your "Global Warming" is forecasted to dump a foot or more of snow in the Texas Panhandle this Friday -- have we mentioned that the first day of Spring 2009 has come and gone?
Tell you what. To raise some kind of awareness, on 28 MAR from 8:30 PeeEm to 9:30 PeeEm I will have a bloody great bonfire built in my front yard.
Dead trees! Fire! Carbon dioxide by the ton!
World Wildlife Fund ... you schmucks.
