Best joke in a long time: Carbon Dioxide — they call it pollution, we call it life.

co2They call it a com­pelling chal­lenge to glob­al warm­ing alarmism. We call it a hilar­i­ous tes­ta­ment to PR crap­o­la!

Those wild and crazy folks over at the Com­pet­i­tive Enter­prise Insti­tute (AKA Cli­mate Skep­tics, Inc) are wor­ried that CO2 has got­ten a bad name, so they’re pour­ing those hard-earned Exxon dol­lars into a cou­ple tv spots to pol­ish up its image. You got­ta pity the­se guys. Sci­en­tists who’ll say Glob­al Warm­ing is a myth are get­ting hard­er and hard­er to buy, Cor­po­ra­tions that want to be asso­ci­at­ed with their ham­fist­ed dirty tricks are flee­ing like prover­bial rats from a sink­ing ship, and the best they can muster is the sub­lim­i­nal mes­sage that if you think CO2 is a pol­lu­tant, you’re anti-civ­i­liza­tion and have a prob­lem with lit­tle girls in white dress­es puff­ing dan­de­lion clocks into the wind. Owww. That hurts.

  1. Unfin­ished expla­na­tion of com­bus­tion process from fos­sil fuel. Com­bus­tion turns good co2 into nitrous oxide, the cause of glob­al warm­ing. You need com­bus­tion to con­vert water to steam to elec­tric­i­ty. Its a very prof­itable for the ener­gy busi­ness, and the biggest con­trib­u­tor to green­house is the gov­ern­ments of the US-fed,staste and local. They are the largest users of elec­tric­i­ty- Talk about the ket­tle call­ing the pot black.

  2. jesus wept. you couldn’t make this shit up. no seri­ous­ly, if i had seen that with­out an intro­duc­tion from this blog i would have thought that was an onion pis­stake.

  3. We watched the­se yes­ter­day and couldn’t stop laugh­ing. I down­load­ed the scripts from the CEI. Absolute com­e­dy gold. I have no choice but to edit it:

    The fuels that pro­duce C02 have freed us from a world of back-break­ing labor, light­ing up our lives, allow­ing us to cre­ate and move the things we need, the peo­ple we love.

    Trans­la­tion: “We’ve made so much mon­ey off CO2 Exxon’s oil that we can go on a ski­ing vaca­tion in St. Moritz. Wait, where’s the snow? You say it melt­ed? It’s gone for good?”

    I think I’ll amuse myself with the­se guys today 😉
