Earth Hour 2010 In Electronic Pictures: South Africa Attacks Gaia

by | 8th, March 2010

EARTH Hour looms. The darkness encroaches. Jules Knight, Ollie Bains, Humphrey Berney and Steven Bowman of Blake were at a photocall to promote WWF’s Earth Hour in Trafalgar Square, London. Blake is not an acronym nor a group loyal to Dyslexics for Darkness. Blake are a band.

Their single, Beautiful Earth, will be released digitally on March 22 and all profits will be donated to the WWF. Yeah , digitally. For downloads. On your clockwork computers.

Earth Hour is at 8:30pm on March 27.

In other news, the South Africans will not be allowed to kill us all:

The United States and Britain are threatening to withhold support for a $3.75 billion World Bank loan for a coal-fired plant in South Africa, expanding the battleground in the global debate over who should pay for clean energy.

The opposition by the bank’s two largest members has raised eyebrows among those who note that the two advanced economies are allowing development of coal-powered plants in their own countries even as they raise concerns about those in poorer countries.

Poor people can be so unreasonable…
