Human Achievement Hour: Turn the lights ON

Back at the beginning of the month I posted asking why we couldn't have an Energy Hour where we all turned the lights on, instead of off, like the World Wildlife Fund's Earth Hour.

Well good news, an Australian organisation called the Conservative Leadership Foundation is doing just that on the same day as Earth Hour and it's called Human Achievement Hour.

During Human Achievement Hour, people around the world will be recognising the incredible accomplishments of the human race.

Originally conceived by the Competitive Enterprise Institute in 2009, Human Achievement Hour coincides with the earth hour campaign but salutes those who keep the lights on and produce the energy that makes human achievement possible.

Millions of people around the world will be showing their support for human achievement by simply going about their daily lives. While earth hour activists will be left in the dark, Human Achievement Hour participants will be going to the cinema, enjoying a hot meal, driving their car or watching television.
Damn straight! Do your bit at 8.30pm on Saturday 27th March and turn the lights ON!
