When you cannot actually push back

The fantastic Emily Atkin of Heated raised an interesting point regarding the premise of pushing back against the oil & gas industry. I thought it was just the oil & gas industry having the big money–and hence resources such as manpower–that you need to plaster every channel with your message. Turns out, it’s more than that: you may refused if you try to go through some of the same channels with your anti-fossil message. That’s just what happened to polluters expsed. Their campaign is very blunt–I assume it is assumed to have the feel of a political ad?–and some clips name and shame polluters directly. But then again, ads from the other side are very blunt, too. Doesn’t surprise me that a gas station ad platform delivered the most blunt rejection–oil & gas ads are probably a considerable source of revenue for those guys.
