One Response to “Smoking: Green.”

  1. And you objected to my "the earth will be just fine without us" post??!!

    I vaguely recall the tobacco companies, maybe a decade or so ago (just call me Mr. Definite…or Mr. Research…it's just too late at night to Google here on the East Coast), actually made a pitch to governments in, I think, Eastern Europe, or possibly the Middle East, to the effect that they should promote cigarette smoking since it'd mean fewer old people to take care of. Needless to say, it caused a media shitstorm, and that campaign was brought to a swift end. But, my point is, the tobacco companies actually are as cynical as cynical as this parody ad.
