New Orleans Did Not Get the Memo On Earth Hour

Andy's place has a serious of fun posts on last nights Earth Hour. See that series here. There are some real interesting photos including one of the West Coast where it appears this was a big deal. However dear decadent NOLA might not have got the memo it looks like.

Now I am not one of these conservatives that is really anti Earth hour. I think conservation is a good conservative idea. Though I understand those having fun with this are engaging a bigger underlying agenda.

However my problem with Earth Hour is this. Not enough sacrifice!!! Why is this occurring in the nice days of early spring like temps. Would it not be better to have Earth Hour during like the month of August when consumption is so high there are power outrages and yes perhaps one has to suffer a tad more discomfort?
