After the oil spill in 2010, BP created an incredibly large advertisement plan of about $93 million in which they they did or attempted to save face that they learned for their mistakes and were now the most green oil company. Besides the fact that the statement green oil company is contradicting, BP has actually increased the amount of CO2 emission that they released into the environment from drilling. The amount of CO2 released per day increased to about 127,000 tons from the 200,000 barrels that they produced from the Alberta Tar Sands. When looking at their advertisements after the oil spill, they use plenty of imagery that involve activities in the gulf such as fishing, they show lots of species and animals that could potentially have been affected by the oil spill, and they also show the actual shores of the gulf to show how “clean it is”. Obviously after learning about all the different techniques that corporations use in their advertisements, it is safe to assume that everyone reading this knows that there is most definitely some dishonesty in all of this. In reality, there is still about 1200 sq miles of oil still scattered on the seabed and oil tar still washing on the shores to this day. Obviously the general public has seen BP ads after the oil spill and what I really want to know is if the general populace feel that BP is not environmentally friendly, or if they think that they are environmentally friendly. After looking at a some polls, it seems that the general public is aware of these green-washing methods, as about 43% of the population has a negative opinion towards the multinational oil company while about 31% of the population views them in a positive light. So there is potentially a possibility that the general public is catching on to these green-washing tactics and can see through the lies. What do you guys think?
