An Inconvenient Truth

Wow. In addition to dumbing down your news and tarting up your 60 Minutes, CBS is apparently hell-bent on destroying the very planet you live on.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Canon, athletic gear leader Nike Inc. and food and consumer goods giant Unilever Plc topped a list rating climate-friendly companies released on Tuesday.

There was a cluster at the bottom of the list of 56 companies. Six tied for last, with a score of zero on a 100-point scale -- Jones Apparel Group Inc., CBS Corp., Burger King Holdings Inc., Darden Restaurants Inc., Wendy's International Inc. and Amazon.com.

From the report:
CBS: A choice to avoid for the climate-conscious consumer. This company is not yet taking meaningful action on climate change. Let this company know you want them to get serious and that you're steering clear until they do.

Review: 0/22 points. Climate Counts found no public information to indicate that CBS has started to measure the impact it has on global warming (i.e. its greenhouse gas emissions or climate footprint).

Reduce: 0/56 points. Climate Counts found no public information to indicate that CBS has reduced its impact on global warming (i.e. its greenhouse gas emissions or climate footprint).

Policy Stance: 0/10 points. Climate Counts found no public information to suggest that CBS supports public policy that addresses climate change.

Report: 0/12 points. Climate Counts found no information on any efforts that CBS has made to address climate change.

See you in hell, Moonves.
