I’ve noticed them, and not just from Chevron.
Fossil fuel producers are jumping onto the ecological bandwagon and it feels so good! Yes, these mega-industries killing our planet have thought better of their mission (to kill our planet) and are telling us how they’re converting themselves into safe energy production.
They’re, oh, what shall we call it? lying? Here’s what a Harper’s Index tells us:
Minimum number of times Chevron has aired TV ads since June 2020 promoting itself as green or sustainable: 26,400.
Maximum percentage of Chevron’s budget spent on green technologies in the past decade: 1.
And, by the way:
Average number of U.S. oil spills reported in the Gulf of Mexico each month: 25.
Each month. I’d better bold that: each month.
