Apparently. the rebuttal (or is it prebuttal?) industry response ads to An Inconvenient Truth, the Al Gore enviro-flick use the tagline:

"Carbon Dioxide: They Call It Pollution. We Call It Life."

Before its latest venture into cheerleading for global warming, CEI has made a name for itself by advocating for things like dioxin.

I've posted a full commentary about these CEI ads and the internet frenzy surrounding them at greenr.

If you look at it, there have been 4 cycles of cooling and warming of +/-5 degrees C over the past 450,000 years, and I'm betting there weren't CO2 spewing humans to blame back then, so why should they be to blame now?

We are in the MIDDLE of a warming cycle, that still has +5 degrees C to go. Of course we are seeing global warming.

See my site for the full details.

Ben Smith calls the CEI ads "parody-defying", but somebody going by Publius has managed a pretty sweet parody here.
