[Climate change] CO2: We call it life

Via Gil Friend:

Here’s an amazing example of what the mind of a skilled propagandist can produce:

Two 60-second television spots from the Competitive Enterprise Institute ‘focusing on the alleged global warming crisis and the calls by some environmental groups and politicians for reduced energy use.’

Carbon Dioxide: It’s what we breathe out, and what plants breathe in. They call it pollution. We call it life.

True enough, but put true statements in distorting contexts, and what do you get? Highly polished sleeze.

I’m wondering who, at what agency, did the creative on these, and how well they’re sleeping at night, and how well they’ll sleep with seawater lapping at their feet. ‘Got milk’ has got nothing on these guys.
