Apple Declared “Least Green” Tech Company

I have long found Apple to be the sort of company that caters to snotty limousine liberals and dumb college students. Their latest catch line “if you don’t have an iPhone, well, you don’t have an iPhone” is about as snotty and condescending as they come. It’s perfect for the sort of company that has legions of left-wing followers camped out in their stores doing essentially nothing. This supposedly environmentally friendly company has Al Gore on its board of directors, thus confirming everything I’ve ever thought about Apple. Apple pulls around a 43% profit on its sales but of course you’ll never hear the left complain. Only oil with its paltry 8% profit is evil.
Left-wing Greenpeace has declared that Apple is the “least green” tech company. I’m sure Al Gore is shocked, shocked to discover that a company for which he sits on the board of directors is considered the “least green.” Of course this goes right along with Al Gore’s do as I say not as I do environmentalism. You’ll recall he has multiple homes across the US. His mansion in Tennessee has some 30,000 square feet and has an electric bill over $10,000 a month. But hey, he plants trees so it’s carbon neutral! I wonder if Apple is doing the same thing.
Saturday is Earth worship day and the media has been busy promoting it. The whole world will come to an end if we don’t bow down and worship Earth and then “save” it from essentially nothing. The EPA has even gotten into the act with a strange, kid friendly rap filled with inaccuracies and inane lyrics. This is the sort of garbage that kids are being fed at the government schools. When I was in 5th grade in the late 80′s we were told that the Amazon rainforest wouldn’t exist in 5 years. It’s still there and is arguably stronger for having been cut down in certain places. We were told acid rain would destroy all of our water. No such thing ever happened of course but facts don’t matter when schools are feeding propaganda to children.
I promise you that in the media Earth Day will receive more attention than Easter, in fact it already has this week. I am no fan of Easter (I oppose holy days not found in scripture) but I can certainly see what’s going on in the media. They hate Christians and will avoid presenting the Christian faith in anything other than a negative light. The media loves the left-wing, socialist nature of Earth Day so it is heavily promoted. Of course anyone who doesn’t go green on Saturday is “corporate” and therefore evil. The left loves its smears.
But of course the left is only interested in crying corporate when they don’t like the corporations they’re attacking. The left-wing media loves to bash oil companies and coal companies. Liberals love to attack energy generally. Even energy they once liked, such as natural gas, becomes the object of scorn and attack if it becomes cheap. Greenpeace ought to be given at least a little credit, they were willing to call out Apple for its alleged green unfriendly ways. They at least seem to be true believers in their misguided green demands. This is unlike Al Gore who is only green if it financially suits him.
Sadly, the story will be largely ignored in the media and the left will continue frequenting Apple while lobbing attacks at the oil industry. There are true Earth worshipers on the left. However most liberals are only green in so far as it promotes their socialist ends. Most of the left really isn’t worried about the environment, they know green claims are a fraud. What they’re really after is scaring the public and pushing a socialist agenda. But of course, we’re not allowed to say that lest the we be attacked as environmentally unfriendly or “corporate.”
