Whatever The Lie, It Will Be Told As Long As We Have The 1st Amendment And Rich Guys Willing To Pay For A Soap Box

When does advocacy work cross the line and become propoganda? I don’t know, but I know it when I see it.

Excuse me? Legions of rational minds disagree.
With the help of The Washington Post, Eric Berger, a science writer at the Houston Chronicle draws a straight line from the sham known as CO2isGreen to Corbin J. Robertson, Jr., of Houston. Robertson is chief executive of Natural Resource Partners, a coal company. H. Leighton Steward, a veteran oil industry executive and co-author of the “Sugar Busters!” dieting books is his partner in the greenwashing effort.
In related climate change news, a group of large corporations — including New Mexico utility PNM Resources, California utility PG&E, power generator Exelon and Nike — denounced the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s opposition to climate legislation. And earlier this month, Duke Energy, Alcoa and Alstom all pulled out of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, an industry group whose ads have asserted that the House climate bill would make energy unaffordable.
In summary, massive utilities and other manufacturers are on the side of reason. The Chamber of Commerce, CleanCoal lobbyists and a couple of guys from Texas are not.
