Why the 10:10 Video Is a Distraction

_jeffrey-perren Guest Post by Jeff Perren

You’ll have seen, or heard, about the 10:10 ads, complete with exploding children, intended by British warmists to “persuade” you to conform.  No pressure.

I invite you to head to Pajamas Media and read my new article on Why the 10:10 Video Is a Distraction.

In it, I argue that the real enemy is much more dangerous, because much more benign looking.

Here's how it begins...

_Quote A British group called 10:10.org recently released (then quickly pulled) a viro snuff film. In the video, teachers press a red button to explode schoolchildren reluctant to accept the Green dogma of AGW (anthropogenic global warming) and other environmentalist fairy tales.
There's no question that the film is revolting and its producers are vicious, no matter how much they try to claim it was intended as humor. Still, the pundits up in arms over it are making a tactical error.
Your comments are invited.

Read the rest here.

    I think you're probably right, Jeff. The 10:10 video was probably designed to make your bog-standard AGW believers look reasonable and relatively harmless.
