|Moving Beyond The Symbolism Of Earth Hour09-04-2013 06:37|
|On March 23, millions of people around the world will be asked again to mark Earth Hour by switching off their lights and non-essential appliances for an hour in symbolic support for climate change mitigation. However, the question that begs to be asked: After so many years of announcing the scientific basis for climate change, is token symbolic support the way to move forward? Or should we instead be thinking of ways to actually cut carbon emissions?

OK, janeaisrael, it is NOW 4 years later. You are now 4 years older and hopefully better educated and have learned a whole lot more about the real world around you.
Can you tell us when you will be marking Earth Hour again?

AGW denier liar whiners have been calling for an ice age for 20(+?) years. AGW denier liar whiners doubled down in 2013, confirming we are returning to ice age conditions. Meanwhile:
From 2013 to present 2017, to date Arctic sea ice VOLUME has DECREASED by ~8%. Continuing, 385 STRAIGHT months had temperatures over the 20th century average.... DESPITE the solar TSI being languid for many decades & low for the last 10 years (including a 3+ year period that set a 100 year record TSI low). 2014, 2015 & 2016 have set consecutive highest global temperatures.

Present Global sea ice extent is ~ 3 million square kilometers LESS than to date early 1980's.
