Australia Post supports Earth Hour

Australia Post has become the latest organisation to inappropriately involve itself in the climate change debate by releasing stamps to remind people about Earth Hour, which as you will recall is organised by the radical environmental organisation WWF (and Fairfax media):

“Australia Post is a committed supporter of this important environmental initiative,” said the Group Manager of Philatelic, Noel Leahy. “The health of the environment is an important global issue and through this stamp issue we hope to engage the community in efforts to help combat global warming by reminding and encouraging them to turn off their lights at 8.30 pm on Saturday, 28 March.”

Australia Post provides a service for all Australians (not just card-carrying Kruddites, and AGW proponents), so it should not be taking sides on political matters such as climate change.

    Thanks for promoting Earth Hour! Another way you can recruit people to the cause is by creating a Earth Hour group on Simply create a group about one action that you will commit to do for Earth Hour and recruit your friends, family, and co-workers to get involved in that action as well. When it comes to climate change, simple actions can make huge differences and Commit21 leverages social media to influence networks of friends, family, and co-workers. Check it out at

    Not quite the intention of the post… however, I am happy to let ACM readers make up their own minds about Earth Hour.
