Awww, did I miss earth hour (day)?

It was earth hour yesterday.  Oops, I forgot to give a...huge electricity consuming mega-party.  I wish I'd thought of it.  One guy here in Toronto got some negative media coverage for renting search lights and throwing a BBQ party. He said he wanted to have as big a footprint that day as possible.  When the media came, he pointed out that turning off lights for an hour does nothing and its purpose is to make people feel good about themselves.  I'm trying to find some of the local media coverage to share (if you know of any, please post a link in the comments section).

Meanwhile, here's a picture of a city at night.  Electricity, how can you not love it?

UPDATE: Thanks to DeanSMS on twitter, for correcting my mixing up of earth hour and earth day (the latter of which apparently takes place in April).
