Greenpeace's 'Astroturf' Photo Op Against Big Oil
Today, Greenpeace activists laid town some real astroturf at the American Petroleum Institute's headquarters in Washington, D.C., the industry group planning the protests.
Here's what the activists say: "The Greenpeace protest calls
attention to the U.S. oil industry's secret plans to have oil workers
attend anti U.S. climate action rallies masquerading as concerned
'energy citizens' faking grassroots support in a practice known as
API says they're not hiding anything. Bill Bush, a spokesman for API, told Talking Points Memo
"I don't think anyone's hiding the ball about this," he said. "I don't
think anyone's trying to suggest that this doesn't have anything to do
with the oil and gas industry."
