Starbucks Quotes Chip Giller, but Do They Really Mean It?

10-29-2007starbucks.jpg

Grist.org’s founder, Chip Giller is the latest to be quoted on a disposable Starbucks cup:

So-called “global warming” is just a secret plot by wacko tree huggers to make America energy independent, clean our air and water, improve the fuel efficiency of our vehicles, kick-start 21st-century industries, and make our cities safer and more livable. Don’t let them get away with it!

Apartment Therapy doesn’t see the irony here, but we do, because we’ve noticed the small print:

The opinions put forth by contributors to The Way I See It do not necessarily reflect the views of Starbucks.
