I don't see what the problem is. It's a satire on lazy people who don't want to do there bit for the environment. Regardless of whether you believe
Global Warming exists or not, We are suffering climate change, whether it's manmade or natural is irrelevant, it's happening. Hiding behind excuses
that your government is making you do things in order to further their evil ways is to be honest very silly, governments, especially the British
Government, usually don't have enough brains to pull off something like that.
Looking after where you live makes sense, throwing things away, when they can be recycled or reused is frankly moronic. Dumping waste where your
children play is ludicrous. Riding to work on a push bike instead of driving is not only cheaper, but also good for your fitness and means you don't
spend hours stuck in traffic cursing the driver in front of you. The people who get blown up in this are caricatures of Idolent slobs, the type of
people who invented and perpetuate the throw away society. Lazy people don't like being exposed for their Idolence and will make excuse after pitiful
excuse not to do anything they don't agree with or can't be bothered with.
I don't advocate the blowing up of people who don't recycle their waste, by the way, I just think it's very funny, and is reminiscent of Monty
Python and Brass Eye. There was also a film made many years ago called Whoops Apocalypse, and in the film the British PM, played by the legendary
Peter Cook, proposes a radical way to cut unemployment by making people jump off the white cliffs of Dover, again another example of satire, or was it
Media Terrorism, you decide. I don't know why people have a problem with looking after the planet and keeping it clean and tidy, we all have to live
here after all. Shock works, that's why its caused controversy. Maybe it is propaganda as you say, but I don't see how it has backfired. Media
Terrorism! Do me a favour. Do you get indignant when you see Coca Cola or Nike lie through their teeth in their adverstising knowing full well that
both companies have been complicit in child labour and exploitation for years? If you don't want to lower your Carbon Footprint, then don't, no-one
is forcing you to.
