File this one under "Corporate Propaganda That Makes Me Want to Puke"

Ugh, I feel a big hurl coming on... Dear GE, is "Ecomagination" a cover for your plan to build more nuclear plants all over the planet? I'm not buying it. Do you really think we're that stupid? Thanks, but no thanks. General Electric puts new focus on global warming (6/6/05)From US News biztech section... "Can industry spread its green fever? General Electric puts new focus on global warming." By Marianne Lavelle

"General Electric's new environmental push, dubbed 'Ecomagination,' features a TV commercial showing an elephant so animated by the industrial giant's clean technology he dances to 'Singin' in the Rain.' GE can claim some fancy footwork, indeed, since its high-profile plan to cut its own greenhouse-gas emissions and boost environmental technology spending, along with similar recent moves by key businesses, has begun to shift the political landscape in favor of action on climate change."

The bear says: A large section of the Housatonic River in Connecticut has been poisoned with PCB by General Electric. GE has effectively delayed efforts to clean up the Housatonic for decades and has spent millions of dollars more on public relations distorting the facts about PCBs in an effort to convince the public that no action is necessary.

GE also continues to undermine the federal Superfund program by challenging key provisions of the statute in federal court.

A responsible, ecologically-minded citizen would not buy anything manufactured by General Electric.
