Take a look at a new print ad produced by DDB Brazil for the World Wildlife Fund (click for full-size):
The appalling tagline states: “The tsunami killed 100 times more people than 9/11. The planet is brutally powerful. Respect it. Preserve it.”
Translation: Forget about those puny jihadists. The planet is the real terrorist threat.
According to AdFreak, WWF denies responsibility for the ad.
Which is curious. Because DDB, the ad agency, seems to have a lengthy track record of being tied vile ads that their clients keep disavowing.
Like this tasteless ad showing bruised and beaten women to illustrate what happens when you don’t wear a sports bra.
And the recent VW suicide bomber viral ad.
So, how is it that the WWF didn’t know about the ad? It won a public service “merit award” earlier this year. Was the WWF unaware of DDB’s checkered history?
The denials from the companies that keep hiring this ad agency are starting to ring hollow, don’t you think?
Continuing the green-washing of 9/11 theme, here’s desperate John Kerry sounding the alarm and pushing for cap-and-tax with his odious national security spin:
On August 6, 2001, President George W. Bush famously received an intelligence briefing entitled, “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.” Thirty-six days later, al Qaeda terrorists did just that.
Scientists tell us we have a 10-year window — if even that — before catastrophic climate change becomes inevitable and irreversible. The threat is real, and time is not on our side.
Facts, as John Adams said, are stubborn things. Here are a few you need to know: Atmospheric carbon-dioxide levels have risen 38% in the industrial era, from 280 to 385 parts per million (ppm). Scientists have warned that anything above 450 ppm — a warming of 2 degrees Celsius — will result in an unacceptable risk of catastrophic climate change.
The truth is that the threat we face is not an abstract concern for the future. It is already upon us and its effects are being felt worldwide, right now. Scientists project that the Arctic will be ice-free in the summer of 2013. Not in 2050, but four years from now.
Make no mistake: catastrophic climate change represents a threat to human security, global stability, and — yes — even to American national security.
I spotlighted the eco-9/11 ploy a few weeks ago here.
Won’t be long before Kerry is waving the DDB/WWF ad on the Senate floor…
And speaking of Leftist exploitation of 9/11…
