350.org cut ties with 10:10

It just gets better.

350.org, the group organising the world-wide 10/10/10 Global Work Party, of which the 'No Pressure' film was supposed to be a part, have renounced the film and cut all ties with 10:10 -

... neither we nor any of our partners saw the video before 10:10 released it live on the internet. Once we viewed it, we immediately urged 10:10 to take it off the web. The video is diametrically opposed to everything we and this movement stands for.
We respect 10:10's previous work to encourage companies, schools, and churches to voluntarily cut their carbon emissions 10%. Upon seeing the video, however, we have informed 10:10 that we can no longer remain partners on 10/10/10 or any other initiative.

That's pretty final, I would have thought.

It's interesting how every organisation that has commented so far has stressed that they had not seen the video before it was released. A massive case of "nothing to do with me, Guv."

Read the whole thing here (not a permanent link - just their media page).


  1. Of course they have cut ties, all of the Eco nazis are running scared at the moment, this lot will be back though, they are tarred with the same brush as 10/10. If it were known I bet they fully approve of that video when behind closed doors.

  2. Couldn't agree more. Everyone is distancing themselves from it now, but I can't believe that a production like that just happened when no-one was looking. It will have been months in the planning, and a lot of people will have had an input. I'd believe the corporate sponsors like Sony, but not 350.org. They're in it up to their eyes.

    I'm sure that, secretly, they do believe that 'something has to be done' about those of us who are insufficiently enthusiastic about their concerns.
