Shell's Greenwashing Advertisements 'misleading'

Oil giant Royal Dutch Shell has been ordered to withdrawal 'misleading' advertising in Holland after the environmental group Friends of the Earth claimed the ads were a case of “greenwashing.”

The ads showing flowers emitting from smoke stacks made the claim that Shell's greenhouse gas emissions were being recycled and used to grow flowers in actual greenhouses. The Dutch Advertising Code Authority stated, “Shell suggests that all of these gases are recycled and that is not the case, so our committee found a misleading environmental claim.”

ABC Australia's Tony Jones and Durkin Transcript

For those of the paper-print orientation, attached is a transcription of the ABC Australia's Tony Jones interview with “Great Global Warming Swindle” director, Martin Durkin.

Probably a good idea to store this one away. You never know when YouTube will pull down the videos.

Thanks to our anonymous friend in the UK for sending this on to us. Fabulous!
