Earth Hour: I'm turning on every light in my house

For those of you that weren't aware, tonight is Earth Hour night.  The idea is for everyone to turn off their lights for one hour this evening as a show of support for the earth, the green agenda, and to save electricity.  Well, this is nonsense, of course.  With a large hat tip to Carpe Diem, here's a video by an environmentalist that has made the OLS blog previously, Bjorn Lomborg (see here).  In it, Lomborg presents a different spin on Earth Hour:

Yep, that's North Korea at night vs. South Korea at night.  Oh, and by the way, that's N.Korea every night...and that's what energy poverty (courtesy of statism) looks like...

Me? I'm turning on every light in my house for an hour tonight.  Join me!
