Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have no doubt heard about Americans for Balanced Energy Choices (ABEC). This corporate front group’s lust for coal is demonstrated by its $30 million dollar advertising blitz on television, newspapers, subways and busses.
If you live in D.C., back in December you might even have come across people dressed as Santa, hired by ABEC to hand out lumps of coal.
So it is perfectly appropriate that April Fool’s Day brings forth a new shill for Big Coal, this one even more ridiculous – albeit more truthful – than ABEC. Behold: ABECC.
