Remember that CEI video we mentioned last month, the one attempting to cast doubt upon global warming? We found it amusing; but many people had far more visceral reactions.
Howard Mortman collected them here. Several are gems; here's our favorite:
You sick lying soulless ignorant son's of bitch's! Selling out that kid in your commercials future for a few more dollars. Nothing in the Science supports the misleading claims in your adds. You can expect an especially large amount of warming in your future... IN HELL! Anyway have a good day... Jackasses! Ignorance and greed mixed together... what a shitty combination.
More heartfelt responses to the CEI ad appear after the jump.
What liberal media? Check out this piece of hate mail:
Just saw this. It is embarrassing. CEI's credibility is taking a big hit here. What's next: Your Friend Nicotine? Please remove me from your press lists. [from a reporter working for a major California newspaper]
("Your Friend Nicotine"? Don't put it past them. At their big awards dinner, the CEI crew gave out free ciggies.)
Then there's this one, a throwback to 17th century Salem:
At one time people could be burned at the stake for knowingly misleading the pubic [sic]. There are people who are ready to revive that tradition for those who have mislead the public and caused correcting the serious problem of global warming to be postponed.
Finally, a highly scientific response to CEI's video:
You are conscious and wilful liars. The rest of the world sees what you are doing and will not forgive your greed. I invoke the law of three on you, as individuals and as an entity. [from an official in a foreign government]
The "law of three," apparently, is a tenet of Wicca.
