Corporate greenwashing

"I think we’re all pretty familiar with corporate greenwashing,  in which toxic companies attempt to downplay their destructive habits  by touting any little green effort they can muster.   But as we move  towards a green economy,  we must be wary of businesses that try to pass of their pollution-based  operations as beneficial for the planet.   One such effort is underway  from the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, a coal industry front group that has spent $1.3 million in ads leading up to this year’s presidential election, which suggest that  using coal power is “environmentally responsible”.  Despite this ruse,  and efforts to create “clean” coal technology, the reality is that this  dirty, destructive, and limited resource is not the answer to our worlds  energy needs, and definitely not the solution to climate change.”
