Remember the enviroweenie snuff film?

'Go with us or die'? Guess what?
But what I could never have imagined was how quickly public disgust – even among greenies – would reach such a pitch that the campaigners would be compelled to withdraw it from the internet.

That, at any rate, is what they keep trying to do – cancelling it whenever it appears on You Tube, pulling it from their campaign website and so on.

Unfortunately their efforts are being frustrated by people on the sceptical side of the climate debate, who keep peskily insisting on reposting the video where everyone can view it. And rightly so. With No Pressure, the environmental movement has revealed the snarling, wicked, homicidal misanthropy beneath its cloak of gentle, bunny-hugging righteousness
That's right, those fearless Guardians of Gaia realized that they were really pissing people off AND showing what they'd really like to do and have been trying to yank the video. Without success. And people found some of the money behind it:
On the other hand, if you’re outraged by the video, you might be interested to know that they also have a small number of genuine commercial sponsors: O2, Sony and Kyocera all have helped fund the 10:10 Campaign.

I suggest that the first thing to do is to make your outrage known to O2, Sony and Kyocera, suggesting that their commercial interests might not be furthered by funding murderous nazi will-fulfillment propaganda
That sounds like a good idea.

And you ought to hit the link and read the 'apology' the organizers put out.

Was that movie really supposed to be 'for'? It looked more like somebody making fun of the eco-movement.

From the 'apology', I'd say they thought it was a stroke of genius, apparently not thinking that non-fanatics might have a problem with killing people who don't go along.
