While thousands of people risk arrest to protest the Keystone Pipeline, CAPP hopes to charm their way into our good books with some well-funded PR efforts.

I love these greenwashing attempts, especially ones this ridiculous. They reek of desperation, and in this case, poorly regulated sulphur emissions.

I’d like to see other companies try this. Here’s a totally fictional ad I made up:
