You just knew that idiot environmentalists would find a way to attack the celebration of Christmas....
SCIENTISTS have warned that Christmas lights are bad for the planet due to huge electricity waste and urged people to get energy efficient festive bulbs.
CSIRO researchers said householders should know that each bulb turned on in the name of Christmas will increase emissions of greenhouse gases.
Dr Platt added: "For a zero-emission Christmas light show, you may consider using solar powered lights or sourcing your electricity from verified green power suppliers."
If eco-freaks had their way, we'd all be shivering, huddled in the cold darkness on Christmas morning, sharing the crust of bread allotted to us by our benevolent, government overlords.
Not to fear TRR readers....at my house we have no less than three, count 'em, THREE, nine foot Christmas trees chock full of lights that have been burning almost around the clock since Thanksgiving. We don't even have to run the central heat. We just bask in the warmth given off by the tree lights.
This kid wants to know why the Christmas tree is dark....it's because his parents are Godless, environmentalist tools.
