US ads praise carbon dioxide :: A Rant

I try not to rant too often with this Blog.

Today I rant.

An article in The Australian this week has alerted me to two 60 second spots created by the Competitive Enterprise Institute to promote the benefits of global warming:

A LITTLE girl blows away dandelion fluff as an announcer says, "Carbon dioxide: they call it pollution; we call it life"

Would you believe they the Institute are "a lobby group closely allied with the Bush Government?". Of course you would.

It's worrying enough that most people aren't concerned about climate change. To come out and actively counter-claim the global warming threat is absolutely outrageous.

Rant over. (Thanks to Shea Guther for the YouTube link)

  1. Climate change denier Exxon Mobil has gone on the offensive, claiming it spent
    more than $3 billion last year on expense related to the environment. But at the same time, it’s funding a campaign to upstage Al Gore’s film on climate change. For all its rhetoric, Exxon Mobil is bankrolling ads questioning the impact of climate change. Read more about it at:

  2. I wrote a counter-ad :::[Carbon dioxide ad – they call it a spot, we call it a stain.] Let me know what you think. If you have any rich friends who have the psychological need to save the planet – I would love to get it produced and run.


    How To Save Civilization, and make everybody on Earth too idly rich and content to bother with polluting and making war.

    One hundred years ago, in 1905, Albert Einstein showed the World the path to a perfect future where everybody is rich and content. But nobody listened.

    Einstein’s paradigm E=mc² equation proved that any physical mass is merely highly concentrated energy, just waiting for the right set of conditions to be released and used for mankind’s benefit.

    For instance, when the protons in ordinary pure water are extracted into controlled couplings to yield Helium, the excess energy released is inexhaustible.

    Unfortunately, ubiquitous, hegemonistic, “military thinkers,” seeking only a BIG BANG Weapon Of Mass Destruction, were the first to uncork the bottle containing “The E=mc² Proton Genie.”

    But in fact, it requires only one solitary individual with a little fortuitous tinkering to re-open the door to Einstein’s great and wonderful vision for everybody… the vision of a “Free Energy Paradise on Earth.”

    The rest is prologue.
