Does this change your mind on climate change?
No. You'd have to be an absolute **** for that video to change your mind, either way, in the same way that if you let Mark of Cain influence your opinion of British soldiers, or letting Triumph of the Will make you Nazi, you'd be a twat undeserving of oxygen, and instead needing to floss with razor wire.

Did it change yours?

I actually think the enviroment is important, but how is it 'funny' for an adult teacher to murder children? Strange people.

I was hoping to be amused by watching people being blown up. Strangely, I wasn't.

Was it about the environment then? Hadn't noticed.

Trust the environmental wackos to think that making a snuff movie about climate change was a good idea. They didn't convince anybody of the need to cut back on emissions, but they convinced me as to how desperate they are to make their point. cnuts.

I have to say I smirked as I watched the video, but the pages of complaints are right - you could not do it with almost any group except "non-environmentalists" without KNOWING it was wrong. How did they ever think it was the right thing to do - and this was the man who wrote possibly the best few minutes of telly ever!

I don't understand the outrage bus (Which I actually find funnier then the advert)

A few people were blown up with some very dodgy special effects. Whats the big deal?

If anything its making fun of the hardcore eco-crusaders

The same people who laughed when a copper beat up a kid in Twin Town? The same people who laughed when Alan B'stard pretended to throw a baby out the window in the New Statemans? The same people people who laugh at the paedophile teacher touching up Neil in the inbetweeners?
Its a crap video though I can't see the point of it.

How dare the OP question the percsivied wisdom

It,s very good that the greenshirts make it up as they go along . Anyone who believes in climate change, in my humble opinion needs to be blown apart. It's as simple as old Winston and I quote :Tosser:

Anthropogenic (from the Greek meaning "man-made") effects, processes, or materials are those that are derived from human activities, as opposed to those occurring in biophysical environments without human influence.

I actually saw this vid yesterday, and had assumed it was someone having a (mildly amusing) dig at 10:10. Having found that they put this together themselves, I'm genuinely confused as to the message they were trying to put across. Unless they actually believe that 'deniers' should be executed I suppose!

I suppose it's what you'd expect from spoilt, self righteous, arty, limp, upper middle class champagne socialists who we born with nothing genuine to fight for and so threw themselves onto the most popular bandwagon around at the time. At least this lot are not in Government I suppose.

Nail, head, hit. It's far easier to murder your opponents than it is to bring them round to your insane belief system. All this video tells me is that if the global cooling deniers could get away with it, they'd happily murder anyone who disagrees with them.

Sure, it gets them and their cause talked about, but I think this is one of the cases which disproves the old maxim of "there's no such thing as bad publicity".

It was meant as a joke, it just wasn't a very funny one. If anything it was taking the piss out of the earnest green fundamentalists.

As for 'not believing in climate change', what is there that you'd like to disbelieve? Atmospheric CO2 levels have gone up, polar ice area has gone down, sea levels have gone up. It has probably killed or displaced lots of people but they're only Bangladeshis or South Sea islanders, so there's nothing for you to be concerned about. The 'anti-greens'
ranting about some actors pretending to blow kids up is just as barking as the green fundamentalists.

As for the long term effects, you could predict those by examining the changes the last time we burned all the available hydrocarbons and dumped the products of combustion into the atmosphere. Oh hang on, we haven't done that before, so really we haven't got a fcuking clue. We'll just have to rely on our best guess from computer models and informed predictions, which would be fine, if they didn't all contradict one another.

I've seen this video. I don't know what planet the people who made it think they're on, but it's not the one they say they're trying to save.

As for Richard Curtis, has anyone else noticed that ever since he stopped working with Ben Elton (on 'Blackadder') he has written and directed unadulterated shit?

There's quite a bit of confusion (if not obfuscation) about the difference between denying climate change full stop and questioning the human cause. I do tend to think that noticing a change and immediately blaming ourselves, a species which has existed for about 0.00002% of Earth's currently-accepted lifespan, is a little arrogant. What research has been done into core activity, the magnetic field, solar winds, influences from space? Not a great deal. CO2 has been leapt on a little too enthusiastically as it's easily measurable and there's a potential to make money from it,and whilst it will undoubtably have some effect, it might be small beer in the grand scheme of things. Your bold does suggest that it would be unwise to embark on any vastly expensive save-the-world endeavour until the situation is clearer.

Not to mentioned axial tilt, natural release of methane tetrahydrate and the million and one completely natural phenomena that release more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere in a few days than ALL human activity worldwide in a similar time frame. Or in the case of a mid-sized volcanic erruption, more carbon dioxide (plus oxides of sulpher and rather a lot of water vapour) in a couple of days than mankind produces in a good six months.

Climate change is happening, just as it has always happened (200 years ago the Thames froze over regularly, 20,000 years ago it was under metres of glacia, ~40-50,000 years ago we had hippos living in what is now London). Has man got anything to do with driving it? The Jury is still out but I'd put my money on it being minor to insignificant.

I'd put mine on it being mostly man-made and significant.

There is some data that is indisputable, e.g., atmospheric CO2 levels have been going up relentlessly ever since the industrial revolution began. This isn't a natural change, ancient CO2 levels have been established from air bubbles trapped in polar ice. CO2 is fairly significant since most plant & animal life is affected by it.

The science involved in extrapolating the temperature effects arising from atmospheric CO2 levels has been long known. The atmosphere admits,,absorbs, reflects & re-radiates so much solar radiation per m^2 and a different amount with an atmosphere of a different composition. This bit is science, there are no opinions involved. Solar warming from increased CO2 was predicted; retreating glaciers and polar ice caps may appear to confirm the predictions.

There is big money, huge money tied up in energy and the big oil money would like us to believe that all is well and we can carry on as we have been doing. Most of the utter bollocks attached to the issue is put about by people who desperately want to believe these fairy tales.
