Celebrating Human Achievement Hour - The countdown

My time management leaves a lot to be desired and I determined long ago that I am addicted to the adrenalin rush of leaving things to the very last minute.

So unusually, I have started planning one month early for this year's Earth Hour.

Naturally, I will not be joining the hippies, enviro-activists and other associated loonies around the world that will turn off their lights for one hour on Saturday 27 March 2010 in order to highlight the confused ideals of man-made global warming.

Last year we managed to bathe our motel in in light by turning on every light source we could muster as the odd building nearby sat in delusional darkness.

This year we intend to go one better and have spent today investigating hiring some industrial lighting equipment to ensure that we do our bit to confront globalised gullibility. 

After some deliberation, we have managed to reserve two of these babies from our local hire centre:  
The NIGHTSHIFTER 4000 is a self contained lighting tower that will turn night into day. Powered by a CAT diesel engine powering 4 x 1000 Watt high performance metal halide lamps.
Oh Boy! This should ensure that our motel frontage will be set ablaze by an intense white light and as an added bonus, we get to burn diesel to generate the power!

While some people return to the Dark Ages, we will be celebrating human achievement with Human Achievement Hour. Light represents man's ability to think, reason and change his environment to suit his needs.

The countdown to 27 March 2010 begins...
