Celebrate Human Achievement, Not Earth Hour on March 28

The Competitive Enterprise Institute has initiated the celebration of ‘Human Achievement Hour’ (HAH) between 8:30pm and 9:30pm on March 28, 2009 in response to and coinciding with Earth Hour, a period during which governments, individuals, and corporations have agreed to dim or shut off lights in an effort to draw attention to climate change.

Unlike Earth Hour, the purpose Human Achievement Hour is to salute the people who keep the lights on and produce the energy that helps make human achievement possible. Many organizations and average folks around the world will show their support for human achievement by simply going about their daily lives.

The celebration of Human Achievement Hour has already garnered sneers and criticism from some of those supporting Earth Hour—they have even had the HAH Wikipedia entry deleted. In spite of all this, we believe that it is important that people around the world participate with us in acknowledging the achievements accomplished by the human race.

Please check out these links to the great new video and other info below, and help us spread the word about HAH–and let’s utilize the social web to do so!

  1. Why do you think “Human Achievement” contradicts “Earth Hour”? We light candles in vigil when people die, observe moments of silence for things like the Holocaust and 9/11… aren’t there more pressing things to be political and vocal about than an hour of the year?

  2. Just watched NBC’s homage to this baloney. As one would expect, not a word about the science that says they are full of shit about AGW. Or about those of us who are “turning on.”
    “Apparently millions of people think its a good idea,” said one asshole in the report.
    Yeah, well millions of people thought Hitler was a good idea. These AGW zombies piss me off–or couldn’t you tell.
    Happy Alpha Proxima Day.

  3. May I suggest musical accompaniment?
    The Moody Blues, ZZ Top (Saw ‘em live at the Houston Rodeo-WOW) and Pink Floyd (Dakk Side of the Moon).
    That’s what my neighbors will be hearing. It’ll be early, no law against that. 😉

  4. I plan to have EVERY light in the house on 😀
    I live in the country, no one will know most likely but I’LL know.
