Official delay in setting fuel economy standards smacks of state-sponsored fuel guzzling: CSE

New Delhi, August 12, 2009:
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) has claimed that the Indian government is talking in two voices when it comes to setting fuel economy standards for cars – and this is putting the country’s energy security and climate action plan at serious risk.

PepsiCo and Coca Cola conjure up "data" that seeks to convolute, confuse and take the Indian public for a ride

New Delhi August 7, 2003: The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) would like to express its disbelief and its annoyance at the way the soft drink industry is trying to make a mockery of the Indian public and the media. Since CSE's report was released on August 5, soft drink manufacturers have not hesitated to call CSE by every possible name and to attack its credibility; they have also termed its reports "baseless". CSE did not respond because it wanted to see the data that the soft drink manufacturers had in their defense.

Hard Truths about Soft Drinks

Laboratory test finds pesticide residues in all cold drinks tested. Just as it had in bottled water six months ago. How hollow are the quality claims of soft drink multinationals? How can Indian consumers be saddled with sub-standard products? How can companies get away with such bad practices?

As it turns out, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Diet Pepsi, Mirinda orange, Mirinda lemon, Blue Pepsi, 7-Up, Coca-Cola, Fanta, Limca, Sprite, and Thums Up are indeed colanisation's dirty dozen
