Is Putin the Greens’ poster boy

President Medvedev, I mean Vladimir Putin, of Russia is doing his best to reduce energy use in Europe. The Brussels Journal: The cheery chappies over at the Competitive Enterprise Institute have noticed an interesting thing about Putin’s gas shenanigans with Ukraine. He is of course helping drive down the usage of energy in Europe, a goal so beloved of the green wallas. Chevron have been running a campaign wearing their Corporate Social Responsibility hat, called ‘I Will Use Less Energy’.
I will use less energy. And we will too. The world demands more and more energy. Where will it come from? We at Chevron are working to provide more of it, both responsibly and efficiently. And we’re developing alternatives. But it’s just as important for all of us to do more with less.
So should Putin be Chevron’s poster boy? They give credit to CEI, but I can't find it at their site. My favorite Putin defender will explain to you how the problem is all Ukraine's. But he is so one-sided that he isn't interesting to rea.
