Earth Hour’s fireworks display

Chris Smith talked briefly on his 2GB afternoon show today about Earth Hour, and made a reference to post-Earth Hour fireworks that made me chuckle. Read what is essentially a transcript of his musings here

To reverse and slightly alter the popular saying (making it grammatically awkward in the process), where there’s fireworks, there’s smoke. This smoky haze across the harbour, as Smithy says, goes with the smoke from the candles, the barbeques, and other sources of carbon that took over where the lights went out.

Such actions amusingly highlight the futility of these symbolic events. Makes me all the more keen to adopt Gordo’s idea of Illumination Hour for myself…
