Since we’ve talked about peak oil and nuclear energy today, we may as well add coal to the daily roster. This showed up as a link on my Facebook page from Lawrence Depenbush. I at first thought it was a parody, because well, swimsuit models and coal mining? C’mon. Sadly though, yes this is a General Electric “Eco-imagination” commercial.
This bizarre commercial was originally aired in mid-2005, though I never saw it until today. The message of a 250 year supply of coal is lost in the imagery. What next, coal porn?
