Other bloggers have reacted with understandable concern to this propaganda video produced by 10:10 where children and adults who refuse to go along with their agenda to reduce their carbon emissions by ten percent are blown to bloody pieces at the press of a button.
The video was swiftly removed from the 10:10 website after complaints, but multiple copies are available elsewhere online. The pressure group issued a half-hearted apology which included this:
With climate change becoming increasingly threatening, and decreasingly talked about in the media, we wanted to find a way to bring this critical issue back into the headlines whilst making people laugh. We were therefore delighted when Britain’s leading comedy writer, Richard Curtis – writer of Blackadder, Four Weddings, Notting Hill and many others – agreed to write a short film for the 10:10 campaign. Many people found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn’t and we sincerely apologise to anybody we have offended.
I find a bit of black humour as funny as the next man, but not when it has come from people who consider humanity to be problematic. Then it becomes sinister.
Judging by the hundreds of comments left under the “apology”, very few people indeed found this short film funny.
Here is a selection of typical reactions:

thank you ever so much for FINALLY showing the true face of eco fascism.
may this video spread ever further on the internet.
the fact of the matter is – some folks on your side “found it funny”
and that says it all.
Throughout history there have been various groups who find persecution of dissenting minorities quite hysterical.
Global warming fanatics you have become what you hate.
Facebook User02 October,
This film reveals the true face of the environmentalist movement, and it is vile. I sincerely hope that charges are brought against 10:10 for the promulgation of hate speech.
10:10 seems to have just the same message as 7/7, the only difference being the magnitude.
I shall boycott O2, Kyocera, Sony, Eaga and the rest of your sponsors and I shall write to my MP asking that all your taxpayer funding should be scrapped in order to reduce the deficit.
Complain to 10:10’s sponsors here:

This winter, I will harvest my deer with my 14 year old son. We will demonstrate more respect for nature, the animals and the environment than you have demonstrated with this disgusting message.
For a bunch of people who consider themselves intellectuals, and value tolerance, you reveal yourselves to be social darwinist elitists, incapable of legitimate discussion.
Jay Christianson02 October,
Oh, *tee hee* no pressure. Let’s just blow kids up in the most graphic and despicable way. “Climate change” (happens every season y’all) is much more serious than depicting murder. This really shows your colors. And you folks say you just, “missed the mark.” Reprehensible, irresponsible. You completely sealed the deal in my mind that you folks don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.

Facebook User02 October,
If a climate sceptic organisation had put up a video where anyone who disagreed with them was blown up I seriously doubt you would have called it ‘extremely funny’.
More eco-fascist propaganda. When will you people stop trying to brainwash others into subscribing to your quasi-religious beliefs? This has gone from being a middle-class guilt trip to an incitement to commit violence against those who don’t agree with your fantasies.
Richard Heyes02 October,
As a teacher myself i am totally shocked that you could think children would not be deeply affected by this, adults can see the reality and stupidity of it, but kids are not so discerning! Sometimes i ask for a show of hands in class who believes climate change is man made, i have never seen more than 50% of hands up. Do you want to blow up 50% of the country’s children?
you are the worst kind of fascists, i’ve come across – not even neo-nazis here in germany delve in this kind of violent extermination lust.
i pray that you will meet the same kind of end in your bunker as hitler.
Tim McNabb02 October,
That was the most disturbing thing I have seen in decades. I am a father and grandfather, and to watch a schoolmarm push a button ending the lives of children, even in jest, demonstrates a level of moral depravity I cannot quite wrap my arms around.
Paul Oakley01 October,
Your science is flawed and your bullying is inexcusable.
Some of the warmists were also disgusted and ashamed at the propaganda…
Chris Merrick02 October,
One of the most despicable things I have seen for a very long time. Yes, climate change is a real problem, but you really need to look into your hearts and wonder if you have lost touch with normal humanity.
Nick Brown02 October,
Brilliant. The deniers are generally to the right of Genghis Khan, but you’ve managed to make even that bunch of swivel-eyed loons look like sweet, reasonable people, by suggesting in entirely unambiguous terms that anyone who doesn’t want to cut their footprint by 10% should be killed.
Mary Estelle Owens3:01 am,
You really screwed things up for those of us who aren’t terrorists. Thank you for being stupid, now all the deniers think we are all crazy and stupid like those of you that participated in making this film, you bunch of freaks.
However, even the diehard Gaia worshipper still doesn’t get it. Presumably, Paul is one of the many people who found the film extremely funny.
If it annoys the minority of skeptic nutters that can be bothered to comment here. Then lets put it back up. I can’t think of a better group of people to wind up.
Poor Paul is so into his religion that he doesn’t see that almost every comment is a negative one. But even the believers who disagree with this particular piece of sick propaganda (which even Goebbels would probably have been embarrassed by) feel the need to be disrespectful to the many who are sceptical. The usual names are trotted out: deniers, swivel-eyed loons and the all-time favourite, nutters. Sensible debate and even original insults are obviously way beyond their capabilities. They likely have no idea at all about the science. They just believe.
They just believe, because as Cranmer wrote last year, Environmentalism is the new Religion of Peace.
Mr Nicholson contends that, while Grainger [his employers] preached the Green gospel, the firm’s executives would turn up at meetings in ‘some of the most highly polluting cars on the road’. He was therefore at odds with his employer, and believes he was persecuted for his beliefs.
His solicitor, Shah Qureshi, said: “Essentially what the judgment says is that a belief in man-made climate change and the alleged resulting moral imperative is capable of being a philosophical belief and is therefore protected by the 2003 religion or belief regulations.”
Whatever the truth about climate change, the “leaders of the free world” with the help of their obliging attack dogs are removing our freedoms and taxing us more in the name of saving the planet. To further the agenda of global governance, various international agencies will be given the authority to tax us directly and dictate policy to our government. The invertebrates recently elected to serve us will of course genuflect before the green goddess and rubber-stamp the globalist policies designed to enslave and impoverish believer and denier alike. For example, the UK is likely to be fined billions of pounds a year to make reparations to developing countries for the damage our industrialised society has allegedly caused them.
The science will not matter; this is now about religion and the infidel denier will be forced to comply. The believer will sacrifice everything for Gaia and willingly pay his tithes to her apostles in the UN as they dream up ever more devious ways to de-industrialise our society.
The time might even come when Gaia has enough followers that the 10:10 video will be considered a documentary. Unless we act. And never let the world forget this sick piece of propaganda.
