10:10 Cut your carbon or we’ll decimate you – “No pressure!” VIDEO

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Either cut your carbon emissions by 10%, or you’ll get decimated: that’s the message of a new video by the 10:10 global campaign – all for the sake of “keeping the planet safe for everyone”.

The Romans rarely would use decimation as a punishment, but the environmentally-aware cooks that came up with this campaign don’t see what’s wrong with the approach:

WARNING: LOTS OF DISTURBING GORE, including a violent scene involving children.
You’re been warned

Ed Morrissey:

What makes this fascinating is that the people who produce this dreck have no clue as to just how far removed they have become from normal human sensibilities, or at least they didn’t until the video began provoking the fully-predictable reaction. They have become so wrapped up in Gaia that they seem to have little connection to humanity.

Instapundit:

It always ends up as mass murder, real or fantasized, with these people. That’s what they do. Treat them with all the respect they deserve.

James Delingpole points out that this Richard Curtis (he of The Vicar of Dibley, Mr Bean, Bridget Jones, Love Actually, Four Weddings and a Funeral) film was paid by British taxpayer money,

The 10:10 Campaign is supported by:
ActionAid (Govt of UK 2nd largest funder in 2009);
The Carbon Trust (surely #1 on the list of quangos-to-go);
The Energy Saving Trust.

Be not surprised that The Guardian is their ‘media partner’.

On the other hand, if you’re outraged by the video, you might be interested to know that they also have a small number of genuine commercial sponsors: O2, Sony and Kyocera all have helped fund the 10:10 Campaign.

Ed Driscoll has lots more on Springtime for Al Gore.

Maybe Curtis – the pasty little hypocrite – ought to title this despicable little gem No Weddings and Your Funeral.

Al Gore: Rising oceans not quite yet

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Al Gore, Tipper Gore snap up Montecito-area villa
The Italian-style home has an ocean view, fountains, six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.
With nine bathrooms, there’s never any waiting time!

In case you wonder if that baby’s carbon footprint would contribute to making the ocean levels rise and swallow up California, Al will assure you don’t need worry:

The couple spent $8,875,000 on an ocean-view villa on 1.5 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, a real estate source familiar with the deal confirms. The Italian-style house has six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

I wonder if Al’s keeping the million-dollar 100-foot BS1 houseboat on Center Hill Lake,Tenn., and if he does, how about the carbon footprint of flying back and forth between the two locations?
