The Newly Green Apple

Hey, remember that NCPPR dude who complained to Tim Cook at the Apple shareholders meeting about Apple’s environmental policies? Dr. Drang wrote a great post today about why that guy is — among many things — a hypocrite:

Apple’s green initiatives aren’t being forced upon it by jackbooted government regulators—it’s making these decisions on its own, which should be something free market advocates approve of. If the decisions are wrong, won’t the market—in its supreme and infallible wisdom—punish Apple? Again, the NCPPR didn’t stir this up because of its interest in Apple or free enterprise. It did it because it knows that ranting about Al Gore and the tyranny of the global warming cabal will open the wallets of its neo-Bircher donor base.
