Global Warming Ad 10/10 - #2227 - Video: Megyn Kelly - Backlash: Graphic Climate Ad Under Fire - The Blaze

WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGES IN THIS VIDEO:  Environmental activists are working to distance themselves from a violent advocacy video that hit the Internet last week depicting the gruesome murder of climate change skeptics. The four-minute video was produced by a London-based group called 10:10 and was removed almost immediately after it debuted. However, bloggers and news media have replayed the video, sparking critical backlash around the world. Though 10:10 claims the film was intended to be comedic, the response has been anything but funny.With climate change becoming increasingly threatening, and decreasingly talked about in the media, we wanted to find a way to bring this critical issue back into the headlines whilst making people laugh,” the group wrote on its website. ”Many found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn’t, and we sincerely apologise to anybody we have offended,” the group said. “Oh well, we live and learn.” But what exactly has been learned? This most recent case of environmental extremism is similar to an “anonymous” article posted last year on a popular left-leaning political site. A June 2, 2009, article posted to Talking Points Memo was similarly scrapped after objections to its message: “At what point to do we jail or execute global warming deniers?”Additionally, as ClimateDepot‘s Marc Morano points out, the “execute skeptics” message is not new:
NASA’s James Hansen has called for trials of climate skeptics in 2008 for “high crimes against humanity.” Environmentalist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lashed out at skeptics of 2007 declaring “This is treason. And we need to start treating them as traitors”In 2009, RFK, Jr. also called coal companies “criminal enterprises” and declared CEO‘s ’should be in jail… for all of eternity.”
Video has received 9,853 views, see original video ad at post #2222.
