Earth Hour Fail

3News

Earth Hour was a big fat fail this year. Perhaps people are waking up to the big fat con that is climate change:

A lot of Kiwis forgot to switch off their lights for this year’s Earth Hour, but organisers of the event are unconcerned.

Figures from national grid operator Transpower show that across most of New Zealand, power usage during Saturday’s Earth Hour was higher than that for the same period last week.

But the New Zealand organisers of Earth Hour say the event is not about power savings on the night.

Perhaps Kiwis don’t need to commiserate with North Koreans who have their very own Earth Hour every single night.

If it isn’t about power savings then what exactly is it about? The organisers say the environment…but they all promote the lighting of paraffin candles…it is a crock and Kiwis know it.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
