InterviewedCharlie Rose’s PBS show, CNN founder Ted Turner argued that inaction on global warming “will be catastrophic” and those who don’t die “will be cannibals.”
On not taking drastic action to correct global warming:
Not doing it will be catastrophic. We’ll be eight degrees hotter in ten, not ten but 30 or 40 years and basically none of the crops will grow. Most of the people will have died and the rest of us will be cannibals.
“This is no longer conjecture. This is a full blown crisis”.
Warmer Idiocracy at it’s best! Built to make you feel sick to the stomach at nice live bears being smashed dead hitting the city! Blood and guts everywhere!
Get it! Here’s the allusion: The city is what killed them. That means you killed them. So the ad is built to make you feel bad, and guilty, and maybe get you to part with some of your hard earned cash. That’ll make you feel better, right?
Now who kicked those bears out of the planes, that’s what I’d like to know. The radical left environmentalist film crew that made the ads? No? Not really? It’s all make believe? Oh, they just made it all up?
Oh, you know what? That’s so sicko.
This gem was posted on Youtube under the title “Best Climate Change Ad Ever”. Of course you just have to be moved to tears of guilt by the nice little puppies drowning and rabbits crying before they are all drowned in a huge flood that’s somehow attributed to man. Somehow it’s caused by CO2, right? Yeah….sure…
The girl starts out expecting a nice bedtime story to be read to her by her dad, but as he turns the pages of the book her smile turns to a frown of concern. Puppies are drowning and rabbits are crying.
Hey, it’s a real tear jerker!
Attribution: of cause is implicit, as the ad ends with a shoutout to control CO2.
Analysis: Since adults mostly would be watching these ads, it follows that the Guilt Load is laid on the parents with the general message being “You are helping ruin the world for your own children. Shouldn’t you be ashamed of yourself?”
Definitely a new Monster in the Closet Award winner!
awww….another sad little girl looking at people drowning on tv, glaciers collapsing, cuddling her teddy bear. Poor little girl trying to sleep and wakes up on a barren desert. She walks to a play set that suddenly appears, then like all the earth starts cracking sort of like when those Martian machines wound there way out in the War of the Worlds – then a giant hurricane heads for her and she runs and runs – but she’s caught by the ragin flood and hangs on a tree limb and screams – and screams – and screams -
Wow, just wow. What kind of a bunch of jerks would try to influence people with propaganda like this? Hey, this is really disgusting.
Prime Warmer Idiocracy.
Yeah, more sicko stuff to “influence you”. This one is jointly produced by the Ad Council (US Government) and Environmental Defense, according to the blurb. A yuppie steps out of the way of the train, saying that if it takes 30 years, it won’t affect him. Then the little girl is revealed who gets hit by the train.
DECONSTRUCTION: By your actions you should feel guilt. You are killing the children with your freight train of carbon emissions. Like the guy in the video you don’t care (knee jerk response, Guilt TIME!). Your actions of today kill the children tomorrow.
You are a gullible sap if you fall for this knee jerk nonsense. Of course we can thank Greenpeace for pulling this one out of the hat. Just feast your eyeballs on what “donations” to Greenpeace go for? Yep, this is a Hall of Warmer Idiocracy Fame winner in the Commercial category.
Greenpeace Global Warming Ad
Baby is left in tub, mother walks away leaving baby to drown. Okay, that’s a charge of negligent homicide around here. Now wait, Greenpeace is implying that that mom is actually you and I. So they are saying we are killing babies, unless we do as they suggest we should do.
ANALYSIS OF PROPAGANDA METHOD: With the assumptions that viewers have already been preconditioned to:
- believe that the sea levels will rise due to global warming
- that man’s carbon emissions are the cause of global warming
- that the planet is warming, or that climate change exists, (whatever the current version of this statement is – hard to keep track isn’t it?)
This nasty little propaganda item attempts to induce fear and guilt by illustrating the baby drowning while the adult walks away.
Supposedly takes a look at “the political reasons why Americans seem to be in denial that global warming is even happening”.
From the Guardian -
The way this scam works, directors of companies alleged to be “damaging the environment” such as the directors of fossil fuel companies could be prosecuted. Smells like a Jesse Jackson style shakedown, which could be used to intimidate the entire world population as well as conveniently prosecute “Climate Deniers”.

Her Youtube video (Warning: Very, very, very boring).
Duh….Hey look, this is seriously stupid. See…if it was hot, you couldn’t pay those girls to wear 322 layers of clothes. So it’s not hot. So what’s the point of this? Like, these girls doing this act wouldn’t make even one buck working the strip joint – they’d be jeered off the stage.
Every time this guy goes home his house shrinks.
One day he can’t get in it. The front door has shrunk to about the size of his briefcase. Now there’s some sort of Warmer storyline and green morale in this somewhere.
So what’s that mean, Mr. Warmer? You got some sick twisted moral that is supposed to relate that to carbon dioxide emissions? It’s really hard to get inside the Warmer brain and figure this stuff out sometimes.
This guy’s somehow managed to get 3M hits on this Youtube video, so it must be worth citing. It’s terrifying indeed to think of 3,000,000 schmucks wasting their time watching this guy. Of course, he says it’s 7.5M hits. Guess he doesn’t read the youtube counter. So he sticks his mug right in front of the camera and starts his little talk before going to his whiteboard. A or B, True or False. That’s the world according to this Warmster. Next he blithely glosses over all squares except the one that he wants to load up with all the terrible things he can think of. Now he really gets going on that one – “This is a world that makes Al Gore look like a sissy with no guts”.
So….he’s saying he’s crazier than Al Gore, is that right? A True Believer.
No using knee jerk emotional hot buttons like little girls drowning and getting ran over by trains. Nope. He’s using simple errors in logic. So he’s disgustingly obscenely wrong. Of course his errors in logic include the error of presuming that you and I are dumb enough to fall for his rhetoric.
We’ll just classify his little group of flawed tactics as “Warmer Idiocracy”. That’ll do for now. I like way he asks “What’s the worst that could happen? If you think I’m wrong, then please tell me” – on Youtube – then disables comments so you can’t.
Guess a lot of people told him off.
