splattergateMedia coverage of Splattergate has gone viral, possibly because 10:10's first non-apology practically encouraged people to continue copying and spreading the video—it ended with the phrase "onwards and upwards."  Now, 10:10 has apologized again, and promised they really, really mean it this time, and chosen to censor the comments that apology garnered. 

I can understand why the 10:10 campaign was surprised by the reaction to their video.  After all, as Marc Morano has pointed out, killing children is not new to the Global Warming community.  Copenhagen's climate summit opened with little girl trying to outrun an angry tidal wave, and that's just one of many examples

But until the "No Pressure" video, environmentalists have always strictly followed certain golden rules: methods of killing were restricted to the environment lashing back against people, children (sometimes polar bears) were never shown actually dying, and unsympathetic animals—or humans—were never killed.  Can you imagine if they showed an overflowing ocean taking out a nest of cobras?

Fanny Armstrong's "No Pressure" video, if anything, was a more honest depiction of the environmental movement—humans killing humans for not abiding by environmentalists' restrictions. 

Realistically, we will not be killed by angry tidal wave taking out the entire world.  We're much more likely to see the slow death of children, adults, and cobras from the ever-increasing restrictions from environmental regulations.  Rachel Carson's crusade against the life-saving DDT, which was featured in our documentary, is proof enough of that.

So, did the "No Pressure" video succeed at getting our attention?  Certainly, and it will continue to serve as inspiration in our fight for a balanced investigation into climate science.

If one inch of rain over one acre of land = 113.31 tons of fresh water. How could the fresh water coming from any hurricane also not stop the ocean currents. So melting ice caps are going to do the same sooner? I dont think so........
