Two corporate titans who unabashedly promote their environmentalist credibility, General Motors (Chevy Volt) and Wal-Mart (corporate sustainability), were in the news last week. Over at the National Legal and Policy Center blog today I explain how GM is involved in what looks like carbon offset fakery and how the largest retailer in the world allegedly got set on its "Green"-ways by a professional river guide. Eight straight quarters of same-store sales declines don't help the enviros' case that sustainable = profitable.
On Monday Walmart announced it would "reinforce its commitment to lower prices," and PajamasMedia's Richard Pollock portrayed it as a departure from the company's efforts in recent years to cozy up to liberal causes such as Obamacare and "sustainability." At the National Legal and Policy Center blog today, I explain how there are no signs that Walmart is changing its ways.
