A not so passive video by rather ‘big green’ 10:10 … How to cut carbon emissions
Update: October 3rd, 2010. Due to immense backlash / controversy, 10:10 has removed the video from their website.
I posted the following comment on October 2nd, 2010 to the controversial video:
“It is incredible how people are silent on violence in the media, violence upon those most vulnerable (think sweatshops & other forms of oppression that have become palatable to the status quo, violence from our occupations and militarism – UNTIL it is connected to climate. Apathetic parents let their children become zombified by violent video games. People line up for bloody films. Nothing is more violent than the truth we ignore, yet will soon face from our denialism of climate change.”
My post was removed.
The most offensive thing about this video is that it does not speak to the fact that our current economic system – that being the capitalist system, is the root cause of climate change.
Until the environmental movement recognizes, accepts and educates citizens on this fact and unite in a battle against the current economic power structure, we, humanity, will never win the war on climate change.
Not so suitable for children …Whippersnapping climate campaign 10:10 teams up with legendary comic screenwriter Richard Curtis – you know, Blackadder, Four Weddings, Notting Hill, co-founded Comic Relief – and Age of Stupid director Franny Armstrong to proudly present their explosive new mini-movie “No Pressure”. The film stars X-Files’ Gillian Anderson, together with Spurs players past and present – including Peter Crouch, Ledley King and David Ginola – with music donated by Radiohead. Shot on 35mm by a 40-strong professional film crew led by director Dougal Wilson, “No Pressure” celebrates everybody who is actively tackling climate change… by blowing up those are aren’t. http://www.1010global.org/no-pressure
