I find that I give evil corporations a lot more slack as long as they don't tell me that they are not evil.

Many environmentalists are well-to-do elitists who object to 'just anyone' having access to their playgrounds. Many need to moralize to others in order to feel good about themselves, this being a response to the gaping black hole of spirituality in their own lives. Even more alarming is the socialist leanings of many in the "environmental" movement.  A not-repeated-enough saying is, "The green tree has red roots.". Control is the goal.  I think all should be concerned with the abuse of resources, but the most important "environment" that needs to be protected is the one that preserves a civilization of liberty and prosperity.

That's an interesting little commentary and knowledge there.  Definitely strikes me as being potentially valid.

 

I think Greenpeace is guilty of being one of those elitists.

 

This isn't to say environmentalism in and of itself is a bad thing.  If A is comprable to B and A is very obviously better for the natural planet, then yeah, obviously we should go with A.  It's really just a matter of priorities, though.  Obsessive concern for environmental impact at the cost of disregarding lots of other important factors is dumb.  But that doesn't mean we shouldn't consider environmental impact either.

the problem isn't that the laptops aren't "green", it's that they're selling them to customers on that basis and it isn't even true.

I agree with you mate, company should not sell their product if the product is not green at all.

 I hate false advertisements
