Free Refills & Why I Love America Rotating Header Image

How far we’ve come [video]

I’m no fan of what Matt Yglesias calls the “stick it to hippies” school of libertarianism—or for that matter, pretty much anything that the Competitive Enterprise Institute promotes. But I do appreciate a good political ad, particularly one that trumpets progress.  And this ad that CEI made attacking Earth Hour is very well done. (I know, I know, I’m a week or so late to this).

The one thing I would add is a picture of free refills at the end. After all, if the never-ending refreshment that is free refills technology is not the pinnacle of human achievement, I don’t know what is.

    Wow. They painted themselves as the pro-science group, even though scientists are in almost complete agreement on the severity and causes of global warming. They also managed to bring Gandhi into an anti-environmentalist ad. That’s impressive work. Also, pure evil.

    Yeah. It is pretty well done. Simple but effective. And I dare say, much better than anything the environmental movement produced to support Earth Hour. But of course it is much easier to produce an ad if you are totally shameless.
