Tomorrow evening, cities, businesses, and individuals around the world will shut off their lights for Earth Hour. As they sit in the dark---ruminating about how the environment would be better off without man-made wonders like electricity---CEI will be hosting a party in observance of our own holiday, Human Achievement Hour.  Founded by CEI Fellow in Consumer Policy Studies Michelle Minton, Human Achievement Hour is dedicated to human inventions, innovations, and explorations. Celebrate tomorrow from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm by watching a movie, listening to music, cooking dinner, or, if you're in D.C., by stopping by CEI's office for food and drinks. You can also "stop by" CEI's party on the web: We'll be livestreaming at http://www.cei.org/hah.
