Sometimes the message says more than was intended

You can’t go into a museum, zoo or aquarium without being assailed by the green propaganda endemic to the ilk who run such institutions.

Check out the Springs Preserve here. It is full of cute slogans and even children’s games celebrating energy and water saving and recycling.

But I almost laughed out loud when I turned a corner in the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. I’d already shrugged off the customary polar bears on ice floes and assorted anti-pollution pleas, but the Soviet-era propaganda poster oozed irony — a discredited dogma being promoted by a failed socialist state propaganda machine. Too rich.

But I think I did laugh out loud when around the next corner I encountered the ripoff of the Woodstock poster— drugs, rock ’n’ roll and mud touting a carbon free footprint. Too sad.
