‘Green’ Wal-Mart Stores

What’s this? Wal-Mart is going green?

Don’t get excited. The two “green” supercenters are just experimental — and are of course meant to burnish the company’s tarnished image. And even if all of Wal-Mart’s stores were built this way, it wouldn’t mean jack-diddly to workers, local economies, or the environment.

According to the article, “The average supercenter uses 1.5 million kilowatts for lighting in a year.” The bigger they are, the harder they fall, and when the price of crude reaches a certain level, Wal-Mart is going to crash like a ton of bricks.
