Earth Hour Flops Again… Even in energy impoverished Ontario

It’s fading into irrelevance thanks in part to Ontario’s Wynne induced energy poverty.

“In the city of Toronto electricity demand was 77 megawatts lower than a typical Saturday in March — a 2.8 per cent drop that’s equivalent to taking 31,000 homes off the grid, according to Toronto Hydro.

Last year, the drop was 89 megawatts; in 2015 it was 103.”

    Right next to Kwanzaa.

    My eleven year old ran around the house turning everything on to celebrate “human achievement hour”. I told him he had to turn everything off as soon as it was over because as much as I support human achievement, I’m also a tightwad.

      Well done, teach ’em young. Maybe let them start the car next year too.

    Just who are we virtue signaling to by freezing in the dark for an hour?
    I suspect that most of the proponents of Earth Hour also hate me for my gender and color of my skin too.
    Screw them, and screw Earth Hour!

      The Toronto news was all about these losers walking downtown with candles. Get a life.
      I spent the time at friends having a few drinks and laughs.

      With ALL the lights on.

    What’s the point in turning everything off – so that Hydro One can sell the surplus generated at a loss to New York State or Michigan?

    It didn’t fail. We had our annual tire fire. Started with waste oil.

    To celebrate I turned on all my lights , appliances , TV”s ,
    lab tops music systems even the christmas lights. All possible energy I could while contemplating all the energy
    Corporations now all private that rob all the citizens while taking in billions in profits. Just have a look at their assets including massive towers and property etc
    What a fucking joke to have all the left wing vegetarians turn off their lights to think they are in solidarity The imbecilic solidarity of morons
    Apparently they run the companies in Ontario with the same mal practice methods as they have run departments in that failing government leaving horrendous costs to tax payers.
