Good for us. The ads, “airing in 14 U.S. cities from May 18 to May 28, 2006,” don’t merely say that global warming isn’t a big deal — though they say that too — they seriously say that carbon dioxide is great stuff. “We breathe it out, plants breathe it in.”
Once again, reality exceeds The Simpsons.
