Climate Greenwash Awards 2009 -- voting open till 22 May

Hi,

Big business tries to portray itself as a part of the solution of the global
climate crisis. Next weekend it will hold its own Business Summit in
Copenhagen from 24th - 26th May. Several big carbon emitters are involved.
Does big business have the real solutions to the climate crisis? Or are they
just trying to look green while continuing business as usual?

An internet vote will decide which company has been making the most
outrageous claims of being green ahead of this year's crucial UN climate
talks in Copenhagen. Cast your vote on http://www.climategreenwash.org to
help decide which of the six nominated companies should win the Climate
Greenwash Award.

The nominated companies are ArcelorMittal, BP, DONG Energy, Repsol, Shell and
Vattenfall.

Help highlighting climate greenwash by large corporations.
Go to http://www.climategreenwash.org and vote online (until Friday 22 May at
noon)
