Mickey Mouse pushes fossil fuels in this 1985 comic book
Matt Novak of Paleofuture has been posting photos of a 1985 Disney comic touting the benefits of oil pipelines and coal. What’s really striking is how much it genuinely sounds like Republican talking points. I guess Goofy is the American public, Mickey is the GOP, and whoever does Mickey’s voice is the Koch brothers.
“Sure, Goofy! Oil can supply your car’s energy needs for many years to come!” (1985)
“Yes, Goofy — but it will help if we can find new sources of oil in our own country!” (1985)
“An 800-mile-long pipeline was built to carry the oil produced… to the port of Valdez…” (1985)
“Boy, that’s really amazing! And right from our own country, too!” (1985)
“And coal will probably be around for another several hundred years or so!” (1985)
