Global Warming

Monday, July 14, 2008
This post does not include a position. You will find neither a pro-environment or anti-earth message here. There is no agenda behind this post. Seriously.

So I'm watching all the episodes of Burn Notice on Hulu.com and I keep seeing this ad. It's an ad for FightGlobalWarming.com (seriously, I thought it was "climate change" these days!) and it is, quite frankly, an ad that's designed to be disturbing. I give them full credit for just making me feel uncomfortable watching it.


The message I take away from this is, "Save the planet. Do it for the children." That plea, however, rests on one great assumption...

...that we want the kids to be saved.

There, I stated the obvious so everyone else didn't have to.
