Skip to comments.Coca-Cola leads cheering section for 1-world climate change taxes
Posted on 11/21/2009 8:41:55 AM PST by raptor22
Coca-Cola is spearheading a coalition of more than 100 companies pushing a United Nations climate treaty to bind the U.S. to cap-and-trade emissions regulation, commit the world's wealthiest nations to a potential $10 trillion in foreign aid and, possibly, form a proposed international "super-grid" for regulating and distributing electric power worldwide.
Together with the SAP and Siemens corporations, Coca-Cola launched a website called Hopenhagen, leading up to the U.N. Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark, which opens on Dec. 7. The website invites the citizens of the world to sign a petition demanding world leaders draft binding agreements on climate change and advertises, as of today, "16 days left to seal the deal."
Other "friends" of Hopenhagen include media outlets Newsweek, Discovery Channel, Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Seventeen, The Wall Street Journal and Clear Channel, among others, Internet giants Yahoo, Google and AOL and dozens of other companies and organizations.

Reading that Costco is refusing to carry Coke.
Does my heart good.
Something about reaching a pricing agreement.
GOODBYE COKE GOODBYE
I love (diet) Coke. No more for. I like Coors better anyway.

If I boycotted every company that pulled stupid stuff, I wouldn’t be able to buy anything.
Pepsi sucks and I wouldn’t drink their garbage if they were the most conservative company in the world.
This is all a matter of personal preference of course and I’m sure there are people here who think Coke sucks and Pepsi is just wonderful.
We’re done with Coke products!
The list of the companies / organizations supporting this nonsense is at
Used to drink a coke a day. Guess I’ll give it up for good. Actually haven’t had one in a couple of months, and I don’t miss it anymore.
The corn syrup version of Coke tastes terrible to me - how about RC Cola and a moonpie?
Coke is it. I use Mac computers, too.
I'm going to WalMart and pickup some Cokes and cukes! I also need some HP ink for my OfficeJet, and a few more socks made from American cotton, by Americans...
Any company with manufacturing centers and customers in the third world is going to cheer for cap and tax because they aren’t “citizens” of the US anymore. They know that anything that weakens the US and the concept of the sovereign nation-state strengthens them and their ability to exploit the people through neo-feudalism.
I never was big on beer but I am an alcoholic and haven’t had an alcohol beverage in almost 30 years. What I remember was that I couldn’t tell any difference among domestic brands but certainly could distinguish between domestic and German beer.
Whiskey was another matter altogether
About 6 months ago I was designing a process system which involved the use of phosphoric acid to address a heavy metals issue. At the time, I had been drinking almost nothing but Diet Coke or water. I remember being in a conversation about Nutrisweet and decided to look into what this stuff was. Something about creating formaldahyde in the digestive process got my attention so I decided to see whate was in the DC.
The first ingredient on the side of the can was; Phosphoric Acid. I quit drinking the stuff that moment. About three days of noticable withdraawals from the caffene and that was it. Now I drink water and iced tea (not instant) with the occasional beer after a long hot day at the tracks.
What’s with the Wall Street Journal?
Business Week, "Scientific" American, The Economist, Wall Street Journal, Financial Times of London, Weather Underground, Mother Jones, Thompson Reuters, Yahoo, National Geographic, Newsweek, Discovery Channel.
The push for global totalitarian socialism results in some stranger bed partners, eh?
That would be “strange” bed partners.
