‘Human Achievement Hour’: Leave the Lights On and Celebrate this Saturday March 31st

“During Human Achievement Hour, enjoy the benefits of capitalism and human innovation. To celebrate participants need only to spend the 8:30pm to 9:30pm hour on March 31 enjoying the benefits of free enterprise and human innovation: gather with friends in the warmth of a heated home, watch television, take a hot shower, drink a beer, call a loved one on the phone, or listen to music.”

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) is a feisty bunch. Their global warming realism team of Marlo Lewis, Myron Ebell, Chris Horner, and William Yeatman is crack.

And really, who would you rather have a beer with: Marlo Lewis or that guy Joe Romm over at Climate Progress? Heck, Marlo might bring his Mandolin and Old Town Tradition band to entertain you!

I think we win the ‘good guys’ award in the highly contentious global warming debate, not only the intellectual case for climate livability and public policy inactivism.

And so I bring attention to the worthy initiative of Fred Smith and CEI to counter the silly turn-off-the-lights Earth Hour with its 4th Annual Human Achievement Happy Hour this Saturday March 31.

Leave the nights on, and celebrate in the intellectual tradition of Julian Simon, by all means!

Here is the invitation announcement. [
