Richard Curtis, the British director of Love Actually (2003), has produced a new climate-change awareness video that includes gruesome images of exploding schoolchildren. In the spot, students who refuse to comply with carbon-cutting standards are slaughtered by their teacher.
The video — dubbed an “eco-fascist snuff movie” by James Delingpole of the Daily Telegraph — has caused a stir across the pond. Due to public outcry, the video has since been removed from the web by its sponsor, the 10:10 group.
Sen. James Inhofe (R., Okla.), the ranking member of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, tells National Review Online that the clip is an “outrageous, last-ditch effort” by the green movement to “scare little kids into thinking that they could be killed if they don’t believe what they’re told to believe.”
