By Joshua S. Hill
Ethical consumerism non-profit Green America has this week gone on the offensive against American telecommunications giant Verizon regarding what it describes as misleading '#humanability' advertising campaign that is currently focusing on a partnership with the Hawaiian Electric Company.
Green America has long been the self-imposed watchdog for America's telecommunications companies, as highlighted by its Wireless Scorecard which rates the big four companies - T-Mobile, Sprint, AT&T, and Verizon - on their commitment to and current clean energy sourcing, and their greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets. In March of this year, the latest Scorecard gave T-Mobile an A-, Sprint received a C, AT&T received a C-, and Verizon flunked out across the board with Fs.
