Earth Hour

Long-time readers know I enjoy having a bit of a moan about the annual celebration of the Middle Ages known as Earth Hour.

This year an article in Slate makes the case against it pretty well, including this:

Moreover, during Earth Hour, any significant drop in electricity demand will entail a reduction in CO2 emissions during the hour, but it will be offset by the surge from firing up coal or gas stations to restore electricity supplies afterward.
