Peter Foster includes this nighttime satellite image illustrating power usage in North Korea and South Korea in a post about Earth Hour in Toronto.
Driving around the Stygian gloom of downtown Toronto on Saturday night during Earth Hour was a profoundly depressing experience. It demonstrated not public concern about the environment, but the terrifying power of eco-hysteria, and the suicidal eagerness of local governments and companies to conform to the dimbulb zeitgeist.Earth hour has come and gone, but we do have Earth Day to look forward to. It's not clear if google's interface will go black or green on earth day, but according to this article, google is negotiating with eco-activists to encourage the public to bombard their legislators with calls to do something to make the planet run right.
