Although 10:10 has issued an apology and taken the “No Pressure” video off the site she is quoted in the Daily Telegraph as saying:
“We ‘killed’ five people to make No Pressure – a mere blip compared to the 300,000 real people who now die each year from climate change.”
I suspect this claim about numbers comes from a dodgy report I have written about previously. Like other models that greens tend to favour it is based on ridiculous assumptions.
The film was made by Richard Curtis, the founder of Comic Relief and Make Poverty History as well as an organiser of Live 8 with Bob Geldof. He has also made such appalling romantic comedies as Notting Hill and Love Actually.
Given Curtis’s political and movie track record the new film’s poor attempt at humour and misanthropic politics should come as no surprise.
