Greenpeace turns the tables

Carroll Muffett, deputy campaigns director for Greenpeace USA, turned the tables on industry astroturf groups when his organization formed the benign sounding “”Tomorrow’s Energy Today,” in order to sponsor a table Coal USA 2007 June 26-7, 2008 with the

the biggest wigs from 170 energy companies sitting in a single room and sharing their profit-fueled dreams for a coal-powered future.

The name may have been a spoof on the American Petroleum Institute’s website, EnergyTomorrow.org. For Muffett’s account, see “Hello from Never Land! Adventures as a Coal Industry Insider.”

By the way, the New York Times has an interesting environmental blog, DotEarth
written by its reporter, Andrew C. Revkin. And American Public Radio has a project, Public Insight Network which includes The Greenwash Brigade, as well as Engage 2008.
