It’s that time of year again, when Luddites the world over decide to pay homage to science by snuffing out the lights and begging the mercy of the almighty climate gods. That’s right: it’s Earth Hour. Earth Hour is when climate activists attempt to put their money in the same vicinity as their mouths by turning off their lights from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
“Use your power to change climate change,” EarthHour.org blares (that the coal-powered server farm supporting the online machinations of climate change activists has decidedly refused to shut down the power is a discussion for another day). Because nothing says “I’m doing my part,” like turning off your lights for precisely 0.0114 percent of the calendar year. If that’s not commitment, then I don’t know what is.
Here’s the thing, though: when it comes to Earth Hour, there ain’t no party like a North Korea party ‘cuz a North Korea party literally has no power. North Korea is the all-time world champion of Earth Hour. Why? Because North Korea doesn’t just keep the lights off for one of the 8,760 hours that pass each year, North Korea goes FULL EARTH HOUR 24/7.
This is what commitment looks like, environmentalists:
There are no 10,000-square foot mansions for oil robber barons when you are truly committed to combating climate change. There are no four-star resorts. And there are certainly no private jets.

Nope. If you want to go Full Earth Hour in order to power down climate change, you have only one choice: Full Communism.
