Low Point

This is THE single most ridiculous anti-environmentalist pro-oil bullshit I've ever seen in my life.

It's a piece from industry front Competitie Enterprise Institute about having Carbon Dioxide is the victim of a smear campaign. Check it out at Think Progress. From the ad:
The fuels that produce CO2 (carbon dioxide) 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...Now some politicians want to label carbon dioxide a pollutant. Imagine if they succeed -- what would our lives be like then?
As ThinkProgress notes, this is not an SNL parody, though it sure sounds like it. Unbelievable.

At very least, I suppose, it's encouraging that this is the best they can come up with.
