The author reflects on the lack of a large-green environmentalist and sustainable movement by companies in the U.S. as of March 2011. He believes the efforts of corporate environmentalism only result to the slowdown of nature's destruction. He adds that companies are only concerned about profit, despite their so-called environmental protection efforts. He criticizes public relations (PR) gurus, corporate strategists, and oil industry executives for contributing to the toxic environment.
