This is pretty lame.....

So, as was predicted, the Oil & Gas cartel has reacted to Al Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth. They have hired the Competitive Enterprise Institute to commission ads countering the global warming claim with their own spin. When I read about this on BoingBoing, I thought they were joking - the tag line is: "CO2, some call it pollution, we call it life". I'm not making this up. You have to see the ads to believe them.

I seriously hope they don't actually think Americans are so dumb as to actually believe the counterspin. Are they? Please say they're not! Their logic is akin to someone suggesting that mould all through your house isn't a bad thing by using the tag line: "Mould, some call it a health hazard, we call it penicillin".
