I received an email with a link to the new documentary The Yes Men Fix the World.
In addition to being a political documentary that sheds light on some financial issues, it has a distinctively environmental spin. These men target corporations that have allowed some of the greatest environmental catastrophes in the world. Famously, they lied their way to a public broadcast in which they declared Dow Chemical would finally clean up the damage rendered in Bhopal, India. (For a Wikipedia overview, go here
My favorite part of the link was the "envirosuit."
They have cleverly devised a ridiculous, buglike suit that targets managers of large corporations. With straight faces, they market the "SurvivaBall" (hah!) as a failsafe protection against climate change. The corporate heads are being told they can survive global catastrophe to continue their business as usual; they will not have to face the consequences of their actions.
