Spoof Activism – CoalCares.org

There is a wonderful website my Bush disrupting comrade Chuck Kane pointed me towards.

CoalCares.org is the state of the art of spoof activism.  It takes arguments that bend logic in the way that industry PR machines do “Coal is the true solar power, having locked up the suns energy from millions of years ago.”  To ” Wind turbines can kill up to 70,000 birds per year, or 4.27 birds per turbine per year. Coal particulate pollution, on the other hand, kills fewer than 13,000 people per year.”

    When you were gushing about this site the other day at dinner, I immediately thought of Poe’s Law, which basically says “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won’t mistake for the real thing.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poe%27s_law
