Wal-Mart is the nation's largest private energy user. Each of the discount giant's 2,074 supercenters uses an average of 1.5 million kilowatt-hours per year; combined, that's enough to power Chile.

A good portion of the world remains impoverished so that we can have good lighting while we buy things we don't need and extort poor laborers overseas.

Yay for heartless American consumerism.

don't forget poor laborers here in the u.s. (e.g. wal-mart employees).
