Human Achievement Hour
By Robert W. Felix

28 Mar 09 – New York City's Empire State Building is scheduled to go
dark for one hour tonight, as are the St. Louis Gateway Arch, the Golden
Gate Bridge, the Eiffel Tower, Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza and many
other symbols of human achievement.

Environmentalists are leading a worldwide hour of shame and darkness,
a propaganda device invented by the World Wildlife Fund in 2007

I think this is a travesty, a slap in the face to all of those who have made
this world a better place to live. Instead of being ashamed of human
accomplishment, we should be celebrating it.

Today, Eli Lehrer, a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute
(CEI), announced a "Human Achievement Hour" to counter Earth Hour.
The group says millions of people will participate by turning the lights on,
going to a concert or seeing a movie. "It's obviously tongue-in-cheek,"
Lehrer said.

I wish it weren’t tongue in cheek. I think we should honor the leaders, the
inventors, the creators, the businessmen, and yes, those horrible capitalists,
who have raised our lives out of the mud, out of the hovels, and out of the
darkness of yesteryear.

Now the global warming crowd wants to take us back into the darkness.

CEI also created a Wikipedia page on Human Achievement Hour to let
people know why it was established and how they might participate-- just
as environmentalists had created a Wiki entry for Earth Hour.

Not content with freedom of expression, the environmentalists forced
Wikipedia to remove the page.

I am outraged.

This is the shame; to raise our children to believe that human achievement
is bad.
