Watch Out Mickey; Are You The Next Gibson?

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 4 novembre 2011


In referring to the federal government’s ongoing war against Gibson Guitar, last week’s newsletter noted that Gibson’s history of embracing the radical forestry standards set by green groups had clearly gotten it nowhere. In fact, to say the very least, Gibson’s propensity to accede to radical green demands clearly only just emboldened them. And where has it got Gibson? Under federal investigation. One could also say the same about Disney, who as you will remember, was subjected to a campaign by Greenpeace, Rainforest Action Network and other green groups because they purchased paper products from sources that were not endorsed by the flawed Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).Well, having raised the white flag once, Disney again finds itself under attack from the Mateel Environmental Justice Foundation, which claims Disneyland exposes “children to lead at some of the theme park’s most popular attractions.” Of course, Disney has disputed the allegations, but from research, it’s pretty clear that Mateel thrives from filing lawsuits, particularly those related to California’s Proposition 65, a law that’s widely regarded as a gift to progressive activists and trial lawyers. What can you say, though? Obviously the last thing Disney should do is cede yet more ground to radical environmental groups—they must fight back against these frivolous accusations. Unfortunately after raising the white flag last time around, Disney is more susceptible to attacks from radical green groups. Hate to say it, but we told you so.
