It seems part of the political power that exists today revolves around those powers that decide who can fear monger, or decide what is funny, or what is sexy, or what is cool. The demagogues in power on climate change have produced a video that aims to ‘bring the aviation industry back down to earth’ by encouraging citizens to take action and donate money. The action is vandalizing property with stickers that planestupid.com will send for free, and then taking a photo of ‘naughtiness’ and sending the photo back to planestupid.com. They call it subvertising.
You don’t have to start by blockading a runway (although we’d love it if you did).
Back to the fearmongering. The following video is graphic. So here is the warning, especially to animal lovers: The video equates the weight of greenhouse gases produced for each ‘average’ person on a european flight to weight of a polar bear (400kg) falling hard to the ground — crashing on skywalks and the roof of a car. There is no factual connection stated, but the demagogues imply the death of polar bears are caused by the greenhouse gases from commercial aviation flights. One thing is certain: The visuals are reminiscent of people leaping from high-rises immediately after the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

We have a problem. We’re flying too much, and it’s changing the earth’s climate. Aviation is the fastest growing cause of climate change. But instead of doing anything about it, the Government is planning more flights and larger airports.
Have you noticed how the popular phrase has changed from ‘global warming’ to ‘climate change.’ Oh, and what government — there’s a lot of them.
The falling polar bear video was featured on Glenn Beck Monday, who reported that the polar bear population has actually increased as aviation travel has increased.
Copenhagen climate summit: 1,200 limos, 140 private planes and caviar wedges …
42 limos driven hundreds of miles from Germany and Sweden.
Only five electric cars arriving.
140 private jets, which will have to fly-off to park at a remote location, only to fly back to Copenhagen to pick up VIPs.
