I was talking to my good friend Ron this evening, who has been visiting his hometown in northern Mindanao, Philippines. Iligan is a small city, not a rich place by any means, but has a good university. Ron lives and works now in Singapore, not too far by air, but a million miles away in many ways.
He mentioned how the city had daily black outs of electricity because of decaying infrastructure and an increasing demand on electrical power. Since Earth Hour is upon us, it really seemed ironic. Here we are in a country that still has abundant energy resources, that the green weenies and the current Obama regime want to suppress, the Philippines is a poor 3rd world country that would love not to have imposed blackouts because they have no infrastructure that they can maintain.
Ron is now back in Singapore, a place that was a 3rd world backwater as recently as the late 1960's that got kicked out of the Federation of Malaysia, because it was a drain on their economy and is an economic powerhouse now, outshining all its neighbors. I doubt the people there, especially from the generation of Lee Kwan Yoo's generation want to celebrate Earth Hour.
It's easy for liberals and green weenie activists who have never lived in a 3rd world country to celebrate Earth Hour. Most have never had to endure in a country with no electricity, heat, air conditioning or food. Earth Hour is a daily celebration is North Korea, Laos, Burma, and most of Africa.
Go there and ask them how they like Earth Hour
