U.K. Government Criticized for Nursery Rhyme Fear Ads

Speaks for itself; these assholes are going after our children. People have had enough of this fear-mongering bullshit propaganda.

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) ruled that the adverts – which were based on the children's poems Jack and Jill and Rub-A-Dub-Dub – made exaggerated claims about the threat to Britain from global warming.
In definitely asserting that climate change would cause flooding and drought the adverts went beyond mainstream scientific consensus, the watchdog said.
