Al Gore’s Repower America Takes on BP’s PR Spending

New Picture (124).bmp

Repower America, a project of Al Gore‘s Alliance for Climate Protection, is telling BP to stop spending money on PR. The organization is currently promoting an online petition, which states:

While millions of gallons of oil spew into the Gulf each day, BP is spending millions of dollars in a massive public relations effort to deflect blame and distract from the real story.

BP needs to stop using its big oil fortune on TV ads and lobbyists. It’s time for real responsibility — and real progress solving this disaster.

Tell BP to get its priorities straight and spend its money restoring the environment, not restoring its bottom line.
