For Dimwit Politicians

The lights of Paris dimmed for five minutes on Thursday in a nationwide "lights out" campaign, aimed at raising global awareness over global warming. During the switch-off, the power grid operator RTE observed a fall of 800 megawatts, representing just over 1% of France's total consumption. It comes a day before the release in Paris of a major report warning of humanity's role in climate change.
