Pressure to march to the eco-beat? Don’t be bloody ridiculous! Marc Morano’s website Climate Depot just had a headline about Britain softening up its stand on climate science. He wasn’t kidding!
I thought the Green Police video was a bit dark, but this latest video takes British dark humour to a whole new level. Warning: surreally graphic! (clip is morbidly sarcastic).
Don’t be disturbed by this dear readers. Really, there’s no pressure in the message here. Just a friendly little remnider from your friendly http://www.1010global.org/ that we can all do our little part to save the planet. Of course you don’t need to.
Seriously, looking at the reactions at the other sites and comments, I see a lot of people using this to put thenselves high up on the moral pedestal, overdone indignation and grandstanding. Heck, you’d think the exploding people in the video were real people reading some of the comments. Sure the clip is in bad taste. But it’s just heavy, dark humour. Arguments could be made about the underlying message.
Will the video backfire? Definitely yes.
I think the Greenpeace hooded punk video is far worse. Here we have a kid that is brainwashed and trained to really hate (no humour there at all – pure hatred). Anyway, we see an emerging pattern of violent eco-activism.
Now that’s a clip to get upset about.
