I'd Never Thought of This Before...

...but "green" companies should be careful with their claims:

SEC petitioned to issue guidance on 'potentially false and misleading statements' on global warming.

It's one thing to claim that your "green" product produces less CO2 or other pollutants, or that it contributes to energy independence, but claims that a given product helps protect the earth from global warming could well be deemded "false and misleading" in the future since since scientists themselves can't seem to agree on the extent to which manmade CO2 contributes to global warming, if at all.
