10:10's spectacular own goal....

Have you heard of this outfit before -- the "10:10" organisation?  (Founded by Franny Armstrong, left).
Not likely if you're outside the UK.  But now millions do know and not for the better!
The 10:10 aim: to get people to commit to reducing their carbon emissions by 10%. I'm not sure what the other "10" is and can't be bothered to find out, Actually....  BOOOM!  What?  Well read the piece and watch the video, you'll see what I mean.  This video is a spectacular own goal!  Blew up in their faces, you might say....

What were they thinking???  Now the tactics of suicide bombers is fair play for "comedy"???
Posted by James Delingpole at the Telegraph.co.uk -- "Eco-fascism jumps the shark: massive, epic fail!"
BTW: my own view: 10% doesn't cut it.  Makes no difference, even if you do buy the AGM argument.  Cuts would have to be of the order of 50-80% to make any difference.
BTW: as a result of the video the numbers signed up has dropped from 98,000 yesterday to 73,000 today.  And all their sponsors, bar 02, have pulled out.  Way to go, Franny!
