Here are the Angry Clean Energy Guy’s “Greenwashing Top 15:” the Top 15 ways we are being deceived – on a daily basis if not more frequently – by Big Oil, businesses, the financial sector, politicians and many others.

There is so much to be angry about, if you are a clean energy guy.
Every day, so many things that happen around the world make me angry when I look at them with lenses colored by the climate change chaos unfolding everywhere around us. And I am especially angry because I know we can solve the climate change crisis if we were only trying.
Each week, I will share with you a few topics that struck me and that I was very angry about – and this will generally have to do with climate change, solar or wind power, plastic pollution, environmental degradation, wildlife, the oceans and other related topics.
