Classic DuPont DuPlicity, Readers! And another PR stunt.
Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,
Folks, we just found out from the Wilmington, Delaware NEWS JOURNAL (May 16, 2012)that DuPont Chieftess, Ellen Kullman is going to try and show off as a world hunger expert at a big pow-wow put on by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs, this Friday, May 18, 2012, and largely bankrolled by the DuPont Company as Flagship Sponsor.
Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, appears on a panel for food security and world hunger. In the meantime her sprawling chemical conglomerate is feeding huge quantities of perfectly good food to factories to manufacture clothes out of corn, carpets out of corn, costly airplane de-icers out of corn, motor fuel out of wheat.
In the U. K., Ms. Kullman and her equally disreputable partner, oil giant BP are running a huge plant in Hull, England, which will gobble up over 1 million tonnes of wheat a year to manufacture into bio-butanol, motor fuel. This one giant industrial plant will destroy 7% of the entire wheat crop of the U. K., likely turning the country into a net importer from net exporter of wheat.
At DuPont, with its flawed, amoral, and likely highly unprofitable business model, FOOD-to-FUEL & FABRICS, hypocrisy trumps the hunger of millions around the globe.
Merely the perspective of one concerned citizen at large and long-time student of the DuPlicitous DuPont…funfun..
