Celebrate Progressive Human Achivement Hour, Reject Regressive Earth Hour

Published March 28, 2015

The technology liberated by fossil fuels allows us to live a longer and better life.  You can now have fresh vegetables from all over the planet and not having to live off canned vegetables that I had to eat back in the 1930s – 1950s.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute invites you to celebrate “Human Achievement Hour” by turning on your lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. TODAY, March 28. This celebration of human progress and advancement is an alternative to “Earth Hour,” the annual event calling on people and business to turn off their lights for an hour as a symbolic gesture against climate change.

Share in the celebration of modern society on Facebook! And Tweet it with the hashtag#HAH2015.


In contrast, Earth Hour wants you to live like the people in the 17th century — dying young, starving, working yourself to death with manual labor, etc.

Humans were not meant to live that way. Humans learned how to not live that way. Let’s not go back.
