Another Green Fail: No More Polar Bear Coke Cans

Russ Steele

We were listening to the NBC Evening News when we heard the news, Coke is no longer promoting it’s White Polar Bear Coke. If you bought these white cans polar bears on the label a portion of your purchase would be use to support of the World Wildlife Federation. The Polar Bear Coke is not selling, so Coke is abandoning the campaign.

Coke claims that customer were confused by the Polar Bear label. I am more inclined to think that customers were aware that they would be supporting the WWF and the global warming hoax and decided not to buy the Polar Bear Coke.  If you recall, the WWF provided 27 authors to the UN IPCC reports, that have been discredited by amateur investigators.

Donna Laframboise, at the No Frakking Consensus blog, has found proof that the UN IPCC is using World Wildlife Fund staff members employed by a special unit at the WWF to write and/or edit large sections of the latest IPCC Assessment Report.

When Laframboise compared compared list of IPCC authors’ list with a WWF associated list she found 78 people at the intersection of these two lists.  According Laframboise’s report:

. . . there are 23 coordinating lead authors among those 78 names: the coordinating lead authors are in charge of a whole chapter. Note that the other ranks include “generic” lead authors, review editors, and numerous “rank and file” contributing authors. All these types of IPCC members are represented in the WWF panel; however, the overrepresentation of the IPCC’s most powerful people in the WWF structures is striking.

I think the Coke customers got the word that if they bought Polar Bear Coke they would be supporting the human caused global warming hoax.

Or, it could be that Coke Marketing have been reading the Climategate II e-mails and have decided that need more cover. You decide.

    I’m inclined to believe that consumers were confused by the white label. Or maybe they thought it was made out of polar bears. Look at it this way…the bear cans will be collectables in a few years. Just like Billy Beer.

    I lived in the old south back in the 70’s, and back then a six pack of Coors was worth its weight in gold. People went nuts for it because you couldn’t find it east of the Mississippi. Considering that the only choices they had were Schlitz, PBR, and Colt 45, (unless you were in a dry county) I guess it made sense. I never cared for the swill myself.
