Beleaguered congressional anti-environmentalists have taken
a new tack: burnishing their environmental image while
continuing to vote for the same extreme pro-polluter agenda.
"Earth Day appearances, tree plantings and zoo visits aside,
these same senators and representatives continue to work to
undermine our landmark environmental laws," said Sierra Club
Conservation Director Bruce Hamilton. "But we're not about
to let their greenwashing go unanswered."
The Club has long been involved in exposing greenscamming.
Now, with the help of Diane MacEachern of Vanguard
Communications, the Club is producing a series of cartoons
and mailings to the press entitled "Checks, Lies &
Videotape," which profiles the antics of a fictionalized
senator. Our two-faced star, Janus Hoodwink, is a glad-
handing senator who shamelessly vaunts his own environmental
double standard in the interest of re-election. The single-
panel spots are designed to warn the media about the
misleading campaign offensive that some anti-
environmentalists will be conducting. The Hoodwink cartoons
will be accompanied by background information on the issue
in question and the vote in Congress.
