Chevron: Evil Twin or Greenwash


I just saw a Chevron commercial that frankly addressed the probability that the world's oil is half-gone, and then asked if will we help them meet this challenge?

Does their goodwill have anything to do with this?
...a class-action lawsuit that alleges San Ramon-based Chevron Corp. failed to clean up billions of gallons of toxic waste dumped in pristine rainforest in Ecuador...
Or this, or this, or this, or this, or this...

From Chevron's environment page,

Beyond meeting the world's energy needs, our goal is to be recognized and admired everywhere for having a record of environmental excellence.
Maybe excellence is all relative, or maybe there are two Chevrons? Evil twin theory. Or is it just another greenwash?
