Slowly, slowly, after many months of inactivity, tar-sands promoting lobbying thingy EthicalOil.org has been trying to reboot. Amanda Achtman has become their media contact, and they've attempted a few (guest) posts on their website. Furthermore, last month Amanda put together a "Social Oil" youtube video, which was announced to some fan-fare. But then after that one media hit...nothing. And if you follow the links at EO you see:
Curious, I contacted Amanda to find out what was up. Turns out EO had originally used this song by Fatboy Slim as soundtrack, and given the video's controversial nature, Fatboy's record company (note the blog name) had lowered the boom on them. A slightly different version can be found here, not that I am recommending you watch it.
So, for some reason, Ethical Oil is back. We shall see if they regain the level of influence they once, briefly, possessed.
