Newsweek 's Green Awards

Newsweek's rankings ignore emission toxicity, but only consider contributions to greenhouse warming while ignoring all other VOCs and HAPs.

By Newsweek standards, it's okay to poison nearby residents as long as it doesn't contribute to global warming! But even on that basis, the article documented that Intel releases the most greenhouse gases of Newsweek's 25 "greenest" companies.

Pointing out these important facts may be the way to respond to the touting of another "green award" for a major polluter.

Newsweek's high ranking of Intel (one of their advertisers) is as phony and political as the Green Zia awards that the State of New Mexico gave to Intel.
