Survivaball

I really am having a hard time with the thought that this isn’t an onion article.

Treehugger’s coverage and straight from Halliburton. I just really can’t believe this can be for real.

The writing on the Halliburton site… can they actually mean what they’re saying?

“Most scientists believe global warming is certain to cause an accelerating onslaught of hurricanes, floods, droughts, tornadoes, etc. and that a world-destroying disaster is increasingly possible…
“In order to head off such catastrophic scenarios, scientists agree we must reduce our carbon emissions by 70% within the next few years. Doing that would seriously undermine corporate profits, however, and so a more forward-thinking solution is needed.”






Many more pictures (and videos!) here.

    Ah, that’s awesome! That’s actually the Yes Men doing a hoax there… I remember you have a DVD with one of their stunts, we watched it together recently. Two guys that disguise themselves as various corporate entities and represent their ‘corporation.’ The Halliburton site is most likely a fake, a domain they bought just to use. They do the same thing in the full length documentary, The Yes Men.

    Ooh, i had a feeling! Should’ve read the comments on Treehugger before posting, probably, eheh. After posting i did a whois on that url and it pointed to gandi.net, which didn’t seem like anything Halliburton would be involved with. Cool to see The Yes Men keeping it up!
