Budget cuts are hitting everybody hard these days. Earth Day used to get a whole damn day, and now it’s getting cut back to Earth Hour? What’s next, Earth Nanosecond? I know the news cycle is getting faster each day, but this is ri-goddamn-diculous.
Wait, what was that? This is about shutting off your lights for an hour on March 31 to raise climate awareness? Oh, fine. Earth Hour can be a thing, too.
Plus, Earth Hour has perks Earth Day never got: Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr will broadcast a yoga class (what?) if you pledge to shut off your CFLs. Are you telling me there will be ladies on the internet wearing NOTHING BUT YOGA CLOTHES if I agree to go without lights for an hour? Sign me up!
