Earth Hour Continues In New York

New Yorkers have had the opportunity to experience the green nirvana of an extended Earth Hour, well below normal temperatures, and a very low carbon footprint. But for some reason they aren’t happy about living in the dark ages.

NEW YORK — Even as the lights came on for many who lost power in New York and New Jersey during the superstorm and a later nor’easter, hundreds of residents protested Saturday outside a Long Island utility, frustrated by its slow response to outages.

Power Outages: New Jersey, New York Slowly See Lights Back On After Hurricane Sandy

It is unfortunate that Bill McKibben didn’t get to share their joy, because it would have stopped him from tweeting about him wanting to cut off the world’s energy supply.

    Having gone 4 days in 100 degree heat with no AC after the dericho, I feel their pain. Here in DC, the dericho was far worse than either Irene or Sandy. No comparison. Very little warning as well.

      I spent about 4-5 days without power in the middle of Winter a couple of years ago. I was one of the lucky ones who had a portable generator, and did not have to abandon my home. I keep over 60 gallons of gas on hand (nearly a week’s worth) and check the generator every couple of months.

    Long Island has tried out the green agenda and it would seem they didn’t like it.

    but the same experience with a goracle slant will have some now falling for the warmist hype and ignoring their own plight to “save the world”…mental gymnastics:-)
    warming did this and its horrible, so lets just do it to ourselves…sheesh
