All it took was watching this brief, informative public service announcement:
Wait, did I say this convinced me of anything? I meant to say it’s a witless, horrifying travesty.
The 10:10 campaign has apologized, but it’s too late. As James Delingpole notes: “With No Pressure, the environmental movement has revealed the snarling, wicked, homicidal misanthropy beneath its cloak of gentle, bunny-hugging righteousness.”
Something like 100 people participated in making this thing. Not one of them thought it might be a bad idea. That says it all.
P.S. As usual, David Burge has expressed what I’m thinking much better than I ever could.
P.P.S. Tim Blair: “Interestingly, 10:10 – the organisation responsible – was founded by Franny Armstrong, director of enviro-panic film The Age of Stupid. How stupid is it to launch a campaign that has to be abandoned within 24 hours?”
