Earth Hour: Environmentalist Fantasy

Earth Hour passed two days ago, to much delight of the environmentalists.

Did these environmentalists get what they wanted? Yes, they did. For one hour, they could pretend that Western Civilization had been burnt out, that humanity had re-entered the dark ages, and the chapter of history on productive man had finally finished. All sacrificed, on the altar of the Earth -and that man is, by his nature and productive capacity, an evil, malevolent being, for his mind and his tecchnology.

In Christchurch, the pin-up city for the event, 13% less power was consumed during the hour than usual. More than their official goal, less than what they really want.
