10:10 mini-movie - No Pressure - Bollocks

Unbloodybelievable, read what you like into the mindset that produced it

The blurb says:

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.

OMG - What the lunatic fringe will do to prove a point! Amazing in light of the fact that the Royal Society today stated that there was no absolute certainty that Climate Change will destroy the planet.

Quote from child in the "film": "I was very happy to get blown up to save the world.".

Errm don't we call that glorifying/justifying terrorism? Generally a bad thing no?

Now if any public money is involved here I'm inclined to complain, will do some googling tomorrow to check...

The producer of this skit is this damsel......

Boris is gallant to a fault. Personally I wouldn't piss on her if she were on fire, unless I had a camcorder handy.

Yes, let's officially endorse the idea that it is funny/OK/approved/admirable to blow up any person with whom one disagrees.

My choice would be to blow up the entire 10:10 crew. This must be the most disgusting piece of film I have ever seen, and all in the name of "humour".

Do I recall virtually the whole world going to war against Hitler when he did exactly the same thing ? Must be imagining it.

End of civilization.

David, no-one claims that climate change will destroy the planet. That's a red herring. The planet will continue to revolve around the sun for a couple of billion years no matter what we do. As a physical entity, it is pretty resilient. The question is what will happen to our rather fragile society. That there will still be a planet would be small comfort I imagine if society collapses under the pressure of global change.

Hi, My name is Adolf Hitler. Myself and my organisation of like minded individuals also advocate the execution of children who do not follow the inevitable progression of our society. They stand in our way and must be exterminated.

It is good to see others share my views. I look forward to working with you all soon.

Kim,

The fudged computer projections that have no predictive value show that the temperature *may* increase a few degrees. For large parts of the globe that increase would be easily manageable, nothing worse than having a longer summer and a milder winter. For some parts of the globe that would perhaps push already marginal settlements over the edge. Though if you are surviving in 40+ degree C conditions on a regular basis a few more degrees won't be much trouble either. The real boon will be in areas where settlement is marginal due to the cold. More land will become productive. More land will become habitable. Even the habitats of natural creatures will expand.

All that is why the climate 'scientists' throw other, equally unproven consequences into the mix. All they ever do is say for any particular region 'The extreme weather you already experience will get worse and more frequent'. There isn't actually any basis to that because the models are not accurate enough.

The only credible threat to civilisation due to climate change is failing to manage energy supplies properly through relying on unreliable means of generation.

Oh, I see . . . we're not supposed to listen to Christopher Booker, Richard North or Lord Monckton because they're not climate scientists. But know-nothing dicks like Richard Curtis and a bunch of bloody footballers must be believed simply because they're famous.

The video is outrageous and something must be done about this group, email them here: hello@1010uk.org and let them know what you think.

"(Sound of an explosion out of vision. Cut to reveal Mrs Nigger-Baiter's chair charred and smoking. Mrs Nigger-Baiter is no longer there. The upholstery is smouldering gently.)

Mrs Shazam: Oh, Mrs Nigger-Baiter's exploded.

Son: Good thing, too.

Mrs Shazam: She was my best friend.

Son: Oh, mother, don't be so sentimental. Things explode every day."
