Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

The Deep F*cking Greencovered Corporations

The Deep F*cking Greencovered Corporations and Their Fecal Brownfaced NGOs

The usual mix of the deep f*cking greencovered corporations and their fecal brownfaced NGOs are at it again. This time they have come up with a deep green branding campaign (what no Saatchi and Saatchi?) called FORTUNE’s first-ever Brainstorm: GREEN Conference.”

By all means, storm on busters. Brainstorm ‘til your brains Explode. Kindly brainstorm yourselves out of existence ‘cause you can’t have a sustainable world run by corporations no matter what color they are painted in, green, blue or any shade of fecal brown.

Question:

IF the catastrophic changes that are engulfing us could somehow be mitigated, slowed down or stopped [sic] … if a new world could be created [sic] as if by an act of divine intervention [sic] offering a sizable number of communities the luxury of a future … should those surviving communities then allow the same old global deep f*cking greencovered corporations and their NGOs reiterate the same old algorithms that are about to checkmate humanity?

Among the “brainstormers” are CEOs and other top-level representatives from world’s biggest earth polluters and their usual line up of NGOs and green front groups that provide the desperately-needed camouflage. Believe it or not, the list includes:

  • Monsanto Company (WTF)
  • Caterpillar, Inc. (Yes the ones with earth f*cking machines, and bulldozers in the occupied territories.)
  • The Dow Chemical Company (Agent Orange!)
  • McDonald’s Corporation
  • General Motors Corporation
  • JP Morgan
  • The Coca-Cola Co.
  • The Procter & Gamble Company
  • Duke Energy Corporation
  • Black & Veatch Holding Co.
  • Google.org
  • Hewlett-Packard Co.
  • Edison International
  • PG&E Corporation
  • IBM
  • Lehman Brothers
  • Dell Inc. (Yes, him, too!)
  • Lufthansa German Airlines
  • Xerox Corporation
  • Siemens Corporate Research, Inc.
  • Azamara Cruises and Celebrity Cruises
  • The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc.
  • Bank of America Corporation
  • JPMorgan Chase
  • GE Energy
  • Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.
  • Marriott International, Inc.

And many others including their blue-thinking brownfaced NGO green fronts …

    Ahhh so. Bush did get realistic about reducing emissions when he insisted that China and India be compelled to reduce their emissions. China has already surpassed the cleaner, more energy efficient United States. A tonne of C02 is no different whether it originates in Asia, Europe or North America. Alky substituted for gasoline still does not stop C02 nor ozone emissions. It`ll be a while before we learn to live compatible lifestyles also.
    Without the capital, no new energy sources will ever be developed either. Green collar jobs? Razzz!!!

    Hi Kathy – It’s like telling you if you replaced your light bulbs, drove a 35mpg car instead of 18mpg … all of which are good ideas, of course, but no cure!

    I think “green” thinking for corporate America has less to do with a healthy planet and more to do with the dollar.

    You’re absolutely right! They really mean “greenback” when they say “green”!

    If the green movement keeps focusing on the little guy with no major strides made with corporations, I think the overall environmental impact will be miniscule by comparison. The hype of Earth Day by corporate America reminded me of the “fad” exposure I had a kid. Let’s everyone jump on the band wagon for one day and/or Earth week.

    Bush this week issued a presidential directive to US car manufactures to increase fuel efficiency to 35 mpg and directed it be done by 2015. How does this type of directive help to encourage other sources of fuel for transportation? And how does this help the US move away from gasoline fueled cars?

    I think “green” thinking for corporate America has less to do with a healthy planet and more to do with the dollar.
