Wal-Mart's Lee Scott: "We are not green."

I do not shop at Wal-Mart but after you read Charles Fishman's The Wal-Mart Effect you realise that whether or not you shop there, it still affects you. I have been impressed by Lee Scott and his attempts to green Wal-Mart; never more than I was by his statement at the ECO:nomics conference that ""We are not green." The impetus is to save money, not please environmentalists. "It really is about how you take cost out, which is waste." He looks tired and much older in this video, it must be a struggle. ::Wall Street Journal
