Environmentalist pressure

A British environmentalist group spent millions on a propaganda video, and then apologized:
As you may have heard, 10:10 made a mistake by releasing a short film about cutting carbon which was supposed to be humorous but in the event upset a lot of people. We quickly realised that we had made a serious mistake and took it down from our website within hours.

We also issued a statement apologising but there has subsequently been quite a lot of negative comment, particularly on blogs, and understandable concern from others working hard to build support for action on climate change.
You can watch the 10:10 - No Pressure video. It is about killing kids and adults who do not conform to peer pressure to support some silly green political plan. The YouTube commenters cannot figure out of the video, and ask, "Are they supporting eviornmentalism or mocking it." The video does both.
