I love reading sharp, pithy correspondence. There's an art to it at which the likes of Don Boudreaux excel. So I really enjoyed this short response by NOT PC reader FreeMack to the contents of the latest newsletter sent to him by the Waikato Chamber of Commerce.
I read your latest newsletter from the Waikato Chamber of Commerce with some concern.
I find it very odd that a business organisation would be promoting such a silly, anti-business idea as Earth Hour.
There is much commentary available as to why it is a foolish idea.
Here is just one example.
If you look at a satellite image of the earth at night, you will notice that North Korea celebrates earth hour, every hour, every night. Is that what you what you would have us aspire to?
I suggest that if you do indeed represent commerce, than you should reconsider your support for Earth Hour.
