PLANE STUPID INDEED

OK, this ad is gruesome and awful taken at face value, but add the fact that bodies are falling from skyscrapers with noises of jet engines in the background...am I the only one who got creepy 9/11 flashbacks? Oy.

3 Yeah, I loved the fact that there were like 140 private planes used to reach the summit.

5 The blood at 0:14 was the worst part for me.

Perhaps the 9/11 parallels were intentional. It takes a lot to shock the viewer into the action. Like drowning puppies:

The fear-mongers haven't won enough converts to their cause with myths about dying polar bears [the official mascot of warmism?] which we cover in our documentary Not Evil Just Wrong, so now they are drowning a puppy in a nationally televised bedtime story in the United Kingdom.

The British government is spending the equivalent of nearly $9.6 million to run advertisements produced as part of the "Act On CO2" program. The story in the ad features an ominous carbon monster spewing black soot from the sky, a restaurant named "The World's End," a weeping bunny and an animated puppy that disappears underwater before a girl's eyes.

The question is, what are viewers supposed to do after seeing such ads? Are they supposed to cancel their flights and ride boats? But wait, boats are bad for the environment too. So the viewers should stay home. But wait, humans exhale carbon dioxide. Each and every one of us is a greenhouse gas factory. And all factories must be shut down forever!

Of course, some factories are more equal than others. As CVG pointed out,

Yeah, I loved the fact that there were like 140 private planes used to reach the summit.

Those 140 private planes were, like, eco-friendly, maaaan. They were, like, powered by positive green vibes. Their psychic engines make an "Ommmm" noise. Just like the engines of the 1,200 limos. Imagine how much pollution they produced on the way to Copenhagen:

"We haven't got enough limos in the country [Denmark] to fulfil the demand," she says. "We're having to drive them in hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden."

That was from the article David quoted:

Copenhagen is preparing for the climate change summit that will produce as much carbon dioxide as a town the size of Middlesbrough.

Perhaps Middlesbrough is a ghost town. Or a low-carbon cave in which tribal elders scare children with tales of a hah-kee stick. This article puts the hockey stick in perspective.
