The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has produced two 60-second television commercials "focusing on the alleged global warming crisis and the calls by some environmental groups and politicians for reduced energy use."
The ads, which will air in 14 U.S. cities through the end of May, are timed with the release of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," which opened in theaters this weekend. The ads can also be seen as a rebuttal to the Environmental Defense/Ad Council spots about which I wrote two months ago: Wake Up Call for Climate Crisis?
According to their web site, CEI "is a non-profit public policy organization dedicated to advancing the principles of free enterprise and limited government. We believe that individuals are best helped not by government intervention, but by making their own choices in a free marketplace."
