Blog submission from Debra Slasor

I live in the DC area and if you ride the metro (train) or have seen a bus in DC lately, you can’t escape Chevron’s “Will You Join Us” ad campaign. It’s precisely those of us who make smart transportation choices who have been bombarded by these greenwashing treats from Chevron, as if somehow we’re going think, man, if only I can support such a progressive and eco-friendly company! Oh, did I just forget that they spend millions of dollars to stop action on climate in congress? Oopsies!

Here’s what they’re suggesting we do:

“I will leave the car at home more.”
“I will take my golf clubs out of the trunk.”
“I will replace 3 light bulbs with CFLs.”
“I will finally get a programmable thermostat.”
“I will consider buying a hybrid.”
