The other day I wrote a post titled, “Give the gift of Asthma and a Warmer Planet this Christmas” on what might have to be the most blatant pro-coal marketing bafflegab in the history of the United States.
The campaign was run by the coal-industry front group the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricty (ACCCE) and it featured little lumps of coal that sang distateful pro-coal renditions of classic Christmas carols, like this:
As I wrote at the time, “… this latest publicity stunt is absolutely absurd and shows just how far the coal lobby is willing to go to market their dirty product as somehow being clean.
A lot of other bloggers felt the same way:
Well it looks like someone at ACCCE finally gave their head a shake and realized just how stupid their Clean Coal Carolers campaign actually was because the whole thing has been vaporized from the ACCCE website.
Same for their Coal Carolers Facebook group.
Suddenly I feel a lot more Christmassy!
