There's no denying that Climate Change is a hotly debated issue, and a contentious one at that, but this video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSTLDel-G9k) has annoyed me no end (Warning, video contains large amount of gore).

NO PRESSURE... but if you disagree with us you'll die.

Thoughts?

Note: It's Carlin, so it's probably NSFW.

I was expecting Al Gore.

As for the ad itself, I'm not sure what was going through the director's mind and it's probably a deep-seated metaphor on how we enjoy watching people getting people blown up in an explosion of blood and gore.

If it's an actual ad for cutting carbon emissions, it's essentially a death threat. If it's a jab at those who are pushing for cutting carbon emissions, it's too direct. Either way, it was pretty ill-conceived.

ill-conceived.
QFT (it's been a while since I last QFTed something).

Not sure where he was aiming at, I'm just positive it's totally tasteless.

I would say ill conceived would be a good description...and I think I'd add disgusting...and completely uncalled for.

I think I'd also like the director and the people behind it to listen to The Doctor's George Carlin post as I think George may very well be spot on with his perception.

Hmmm downright insulting. This is the kind of pseudo-religious environmentalism that Tom Clancy was talking about.
