Climate Counts

Climate Counts. Org has a scorecard project under way that will interest you all. It aims to rate select consumer companies (Starbucks, General Mills, McDonalds….) as to their greenhouse gas awareness.

The site is just being put on line today, so if it isn’t working yet you can co read about it in this Claudia Deutsch article at the NYT.

“the group will rank 56 consumer companies, grouped by industry, on how they measure greenhouse gas emissions, their plans to reduce them, their support or opposition to regulation and — most important, says Wood Turner, the group’s executive director — how fully they disclose those activities.”

Good! In a country born in the belief in freedom of press and speech it sure is hard to get information out of these corporate persons. Applause please!
