The Competitive Enterprise Institute has released two 60-second spots for TV. It's almost too good to be believed:
There's something in these pictures you can't see. It's essential to life. We breathe it out. Plants breathe it in. It comes from animal life. The oceans, the earth, and the fuels we find in it. It's callled carbon dioxide, Co2. The fuels that produce Co2 have freed us from a world of back-breaking labor. Lighting up our lives. Allowing us to create--and move--the things we need, the people we love.

(Ominous music)

Now, some politicians want to label carbon dioxide a pollutant. Imagine if they succeed. What would our lives be like then?

(Ominous music ends)

Carbon dioxide: they call it pollution. We call it life.
The Competitive Enterprise Institute is "funded by Exxon Mobil and other energy and auto companies opposed to mandatory curbs on CO2 emissions," according to the Houston Chronicle.

That's the best!!!

It's so true! Plants DO breath it in! It's not the undesireable byproduct of industrial expansion, but rather the very desirable GIFT of LIFE!

I had never really thought of CO2 in that way, but I sure do now!

You call it propaganda, I call it infotainment.

I call it infedutainucation.

I thought it was a joke at first, but then realized it was a 'serious' think tank.

It's like that Bloom County strip where Exxon pays a sea otter to claim that the oil spill is a good thing, for 40 000 oysters...
