Well, no more Coke for me! Just have to send them a message to let them know why! I used to be a Pepsi fan, so I can go back to it easily.

Coca-Cola is going ahead with this, even though the climate change bs has been outed as a fraud and a hoax? How to go, Coca Cola!

And Pepsi has Obama’s symbol on it.

Who is going to buy their over-priced sugar water when we’re all broke.

Can’t buy Pepsi, can’t buy Coke... guess it’s time to switch to RC Cola.

Like Ringo Starr sang back in the 70s, “No, no, no, no, I don’t drink it no more.”

Send letters to Coke, and be serious about boycotting it. Coke is making a lot of money on other beverages that they own too, so be careful to read before you buy.

I have had my last Coca Cola...

Me too, as of right now. Besides, I prefer diet Mt. Dew and G2 anyway - Pepsi products.

Still trying to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony, I see.

Naturally, they'd like their manufacturing plants to be exempt from any such legislation.

Some excerpts:

“We create a system in which you need a permit to emit [carbon dioxide] or other greenhouse gases,” the guide explains.

So, we’ll need a permit to breathe?

“The Green New Deal also includes a similar, international system that issues “emissions rights to nations according to their population.” Poor nations would have spare permits, so they could profit by selling to “rich industrialized nations that needed more.”

As I’ve said for fifteen years, the bottom line of fighting global climate change would be carbon permits allocated on the basis of population. That means you’d have to send your wealth to Bangladesh in order to drive your car. Go ahead, democrats and pass that and see what happens at the ballot box.

DARN!!! ... Coke ZERO was finally my drink of choice. But maybe the "zero" sort of is "standing for" another "zero" ... so when you pick up a coke, are you drinking "Zero's drink?"
Alas, back to Crystal Lite

Time to get the complete list of corps following them and boycott the lot!

Today there are enough dissatisfied groups to make that happen.

Keep us posted.

Coke wants to teach the world to sing, huh? Let's see...metal cans, plastic jugs, glass bottles, and sugared water. That's it in a nutshell. What do they lose or gain with cap and trade? It escapes me.

Sheesh, with their HQ in Atlanta, you'd think there'd be at least a couple of conservatives on their staff to offer up a little common sense, wouldn't you?

I just looked at the list and I couldn’t find one other than coke that I would use. Looks to me like a bunch of flakes (global warming flakes - don’t melt when it gets cold).

The last time I opened up a Coke was when I needed to remove rust from a few bolts on my engine

There is a later one I remember with a barge captain/operator which was a late 70s or early 80s make.

To contact Coca-Cola:

The Coca-Cola Company
One Coca-Cola Plaza
Atlanta, GA 30313

(404)676-2121

http://coca-cola.com

Home brewed tea, iced or hot, is way better than anything Coke makes anyway.

Are they hoping to sell more cold cokes because after cap and trade you can’t afford electricity to cool off?

It’s even worse with Pepsi, people.

http://www.refresheverything.com/refresh/everything/everything

This site has been around since the inauguration. It also had links to an SEIU-run seminar for young adults at some point. When I sent a polite but firm complaint to customer service the reply was not at all cordial.

Obamunists all around.

Drink beer-I heard on Wilkow that Coors is a Heritage Foundation contributor. Coors makes Killian too.
