The oil lobbyists are stupid. Every time they go after Neil Young, they draw attention to what Neil Young is saying.
In any PR campaign where you are dealing with declining interest, your best move is bringing in a celebrity. You’re not doing that to have a debate. You’re doing that to DRAW ATTENTION TO YOUR CAUSE. You win when your enemy takes the bait, and starts focussing on the celebrity.
These oil sands lobbyists, despite their millions, are frigging idiots.
