10:10 - Sorry - Next time we won't forget to put in a few baby bayoneting jokes

No Pressure | 10:10

Sorry.
Today we put up a mini-movie about 10:10 and climate change called 'No Pressure’.

With climate change becoming increasingly threatening, and decreasingly talked about in the media, we wanted to find a way to bring this critical issue back into the headlines whilst making people laugh. We were therefore delighted when Britain's leading comedy writer, Richard Curtis - writer of Blackadder, Four Weddings, Notting Hill and many others – agreed to write a short film for the 10:10 campaign. Many people found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn't and we sincerely apologise to anybody we have offended.

As a result of these concerns we've taken it off our website.

We'd like to thank the 50 film professionals and 40 actors and extras and who gave their time and equipment to the film for free. We greatly value your contributions and the tremendous enthusiasm and professionalism you brought to the project.

At 10:10 we're all about trying new and creative ways of getting people to take action on climate change. Unfortunately in this instance we missed the mark. Oh well, we live and learn.

Onwards and upwards,

Eugenie, Franny, Lizzie and the whole 10:10 team


So Richard Curtis gets the blame, not the 90 people who worked on it or the others who approved and paid for it. All of them so far up their own eco-arses they couldn't see any problem with threatening to blow up people who weren't convinced to sign up to a fatuous campaign.
It is an epic fail, the New Coke of the eco movement. And it isn't going to go away.

And the biggest problem it had - it just wasn't funny.

Comments

Have taken the opportunity to write to my MP, MEP, Councillors and 10:10's commercial sponsors expressing my disquiet in this matter. Am asking that Government / commercial funding is withdrawn from all 'climate change' related organisations until enquiries are begun and concluded. Not that the eco-graft will be cut off at source, but we can always hope.

Pretty typical non-apology, slip of the mask for the Eco-fascists final-solution plan for world domination. If you didn't like the film where they threaten to kill all the Non-Believers, they're sorry you don't have a sense of "humor" - what kind of proto-Islamist bullpucky is that? Their heroes evidently are that comedian and stage-dancer Pol-Pot, Stalin, Mao.

What a brilliant film. It should not have been taken off. Get a copy and spread it around, with the message - "This is what eco-fascists are REALLY like. If they can't brainwash you, you are toast""

If anyone cares to write to the MD's/CEO's of the organisations/companies that sponsor this crap here are some of them,

ActionAid
The Carbon Trust
The Energy Saving Trust
The Guardian
O2
Sony
Kyocera

Some of whom are tax payer funded. There is also a mention of Marks & Spencers being in on the Gig, I expect the BBC is also in there somewhere along the line misusing licence payers money.

9/11 7/7 and now 10/10 all terrorists!
