Interesting, my contempt for the other great evil has subsided if only slightly. Wal-Mart has decided to go green, they want more efficient trucks, they want renewable energy powering their stores they want renewable fish in the super-markets and other great green ideas. Has Wal-Mart seen the light and decided that they want to save the world? Hell No they realised that more effient trucks would save $300 million dollars a year this is purely a economic/ advertising move. Its good PR to say that your trying to help the environment, although the people who care about the earth are often the same people who care about people and their for are probably like me and simply dont go to wally world.
