Fuels America Sends Snarky Valentine to Big Oil

"We love how oil companies want to keep us dependent on a dirty, climate warming, expensive fuel in short supply. Isn't that just great?"

So goes the new theme from Fuels America, who debuted their We Love Oil! campaign this afternoon. It’s all on (hilarious) video, well worth a share — starring snarky polar bears, oil-slicked birds admiring their sheen, dumbfounded Americans wondering how awesome a future of climate change, and more climate change could really be.

Perhaps our favorite:

“I love how you grown-ups are so oil crazy. You’re going to leave us with nothing but scary weather, no clean energy and no oil left. Good thinking! I love it!”

For the small, underfunded renewable fuels movement — it appears to be the first step in a campaign to go viral with their form of asymmetric warfare.

So it’s Big Oil billions and TV ads against the little guys and their guerilla tactics. Let’s see how that progresses.

Here’s a test — tweet these:

Don’t you just LOVE oil companies?? A video Valentine for our favorite fossil #fuel folks: http://youtu.be/yr7qalUUmsk
