A big oops by 10:10, a U.K. climate change
group which just posted, and quickly withdrew, an over-the-top video in

reluctance about reducing carbon emissions. Titled "No Pressure" and
directed by filmmaker Richard Curtis, it's slickly done, but jeez: Do we
want all that blood connected to environmental awareness? Backlash here.
