"And the folks that stifle analysis and reality by saying this symbolism matters, I think, put themselves in a terrible bind when they say that symbolism is important. Why? Well, what are they to think about companies like British Petroleum which spent tens of millions of dollars on an ad campaign touting its green credentials all the while spending virtually nothing on green energy (well less than 1/2 percent of its spending) and who owns most of the rights to Prudhoe Bay drilling? If after all the symbolism matters, them please do tell me on what grounds any “E”nvironmentalist can say that BP or any oil company is bad? They all “want” to be green. They all say they care about the planet. How is that in any way different than slapping a LEED tag on a building that is not actually green?"
