Coke Goes Climate Alarmist

Sheesh. Can’t drink Pepsi because it changed to mimic the Obama 2008 logo. Now, Coke goes stupid

(Montreal Gazette) Cans of Coca-Cola are going from red to white as part of a new multimillion-dollar project promoting awareness about climate change.

The new design is part of the soft-drink maker’s new partnership with WWF, the environmental group formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund, to protect polar bear habitat in Canada and other Arctic nations.

The company will donate $2 million to WWF as part of the partnership as well as matching as much as $1 million in donations from North Americans.

Picture of the new can is below the fold.

They also state Coca-Cola will be “water-neutral” by 2020. Why not now? Who’ll remember the pledge in 2020?

Anyhow, the story comes via Tom Nelson, who dug up 6 reasons to call BS on Coke, including:

6. Coca Cola deliberately injects “global warming pollution” into your soda. It’s said that if you could get ALL of the CO2 out of the cola it would fill a volume about four times the volume of the cola itself.

Uh, huh. I’ll stick with my preferred ginger ale. Schwepps, Canada Dry, whatever is on sale. Except for the cheap stuff. Yuck! (I like it, and it is caffeine free. I mostly avoid caffeine. Gives me migraines, plus, don’t need it.)

    Dr. Pepper.

    Punctuation Nazi here.

    There is no “period” after “Dr” in the name “Dr Pepper.”

    Please return to your consumption at 10, 2 and 4.

    Thank you. šŸ˜‰

    Didn’t learn much from new coke did they?

    You will know CO2 is a hazard when they remove it from soft drinks. Until then it is a joke for Coke to support global warming. I stopped drinking carbonated drinks to reduce my carbon footprint. Don’t drink coke because of the carbon dioxide.

    guess its back to pepsi for me. I dont abide any corporation getting involved in politics on any side of the isle.

    Hate Pepsi, love Coke. Er, LOVEd Coke.
    I guess I will have to use gingerale with my Captainā€™s, Jack and Tullemore Dew from now on.
    I’m with Word on this, when a corporation tries to get involved in these kinds of political or social statements, they lose their neutrality, and I won’t support them any longer.

  8. I actually liked New Coke better, believe it or not.

    In all sincerity, good for you, Block. Not many Warmists actually make any changes in their own lives.

    Trish and Word, try RC Cola if you can find it. Good stuff

    Yer right Cap, forgot about RC!!! Hope it’s around in local stores!
