Global Warming myth strikes Facebook with feel good garbage.

Turn on your lights to fight global warming myth.

 Got the email below from Facebook today.  Seems they’re going to shut off their lights for an hour Saturday night.  What heroes of the planet!  How many people do you suspect are working at Facebook from 8-9 pm on a Saturday night?  Bob the janitor of Fred the engineer?  This is straight-up feel good crap that will do absolutely nothing.  Who the hell is surfing Facebook on a Saturday night, anyway?  Why not shut the site down completely for an hour?  Well, because that would cut into their revenues. 

Leave all your lights on the Saturday night between 8-9 pm just to counter this stupidity.  Global warming is not caused by human activity, the extent to which our planet is warming or cool has to do with that big ball of fire in the sky, the sun.

Here’s the email:

Where I’ve Been is supporting this year’s 2008 World Wildlife Fund Earth Hour! What is Earth Hour? Click here for detailed information.

This Saturday we are shutting off all of our lights from 8-9pm!

Why are we doing this?
If all Where I’ve Been users turns off their lights for one hour, we can reduce this year’s carbon footprint by approximately 22,290,910 pounds. That’s equivalent to saving 400,000 trees or preventing 8.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere. WOW!!!

What can you do?
Turn off your lights!

Last year 2.2 million people shut off their lights for one hour to show their awareness towards global warming. If we can help to spread the awareness, we can become a part of a great cause that will help to preserve the earth!

    Although the article didn’t specify if last year’s event was worldwide, it certainly wasn’t significant with only 0.03% of the world’s population participating. Ironically that is about the same percentage as the total amount of CO2 in the atmosphere; and the human contribution to that is only about 5%. When will they get it? CO2 from human sources is not the cause of global warming.
