From their web site:

Sorry.

Today we put up a mini-movie about 10:10 and climate change called 'No Pressure’.

With climate change becoming increasingly threatening, and decreasingly talked about in the media, we wanted to find a way to bring this critical issue back into the headlines whilst making people laugh. We were therefore delighted when Britain's leading comedy writer, Richard Curtis - writer of Blackadder, Four Weddings, Notting Hill and many others – agreed to write a short film for the 10:10 campaign. Many people found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn't and we sincerely apologise to anybody we have offended.

I don't know whether to believe their campaign was sabotaged by a non-believer in their midst or whether they are really that detached from reality.

(Although I lean toward the latter.)

That's exactly what James Lee was trying to do when he stapped bombs onto his body and took hostages at Discovery network HQ.

Mr Lee is no longer emitting carbon dioxide.

Funny?

Definitely weird, but not funny.
