Food company General Mills Inc. said it is pledging to cut greenhouse gases 28 percent over the next decade across its entire supply chain.Et Tu, General Mills?
The company said it is embarking on its pledge in order to do its part toward preventing the worst effects of climate change.
“We recognize that we must do our part to protect and conserve natural resources,” Ken Powell, the company’s chairman, said in a Monday statement. “Our business depends on it and so does the planet.”
General Mills, based in Golden Valley, Minn., described its commitment as stretching from “farm to fork to landfill,” covering every step its foods take.
Such a broad approach means that the company can have an impact on many other companies and their suppliers and customers,’ ti said.
“We know our greatest impact is outside our four walls — particularly in agriculture, ingredients and packaging,” Powell said.
“To reduce emission levels, we must work across our value chain with growers, suppliers, customers and industry partners. Together, we will identify new solutions and promote sustainable agriculture practices that drive emission reductions.”
Maybe its time for right wingers to engage in a little Shareholder Activism. Since Global Warming is a Hoax (as all good right wingers know), spending corporate resources to fight an imaginary foe is a waste of shareholder value. That means they could sue those bastards at General Mills for wasting all that cash on a problem that does not exist.
I think 3 of the Powerline Bloggers are lawyers and they're global warming deniers, too. If they were to purchase some General Mills stock, maybe they could sue the Board of Directors for waste. Picture one of the Powerline Bloggers hammering the General Mills Chairman of the Board, under oath, until he cracks and admits the whole thing is a hoax. Tearfully he would confess that:
"it was part of my plan revive the market-share of Trix and Coco-Puffs. And I would have gotten away with it too, if it was for you pesky bloggers."BOOM. Anthropogenic Global Warming theory would come crashing down like a house of cards.
Sadly, I don't think any of the Powerline Bloggers are man enough to try it. LOSERS.
