Climategate: MoveOn.Org's Triple WhopperTopics: Climate Change, Climategate, Environment, Global Warming
Although the air quality in the United States has improved dramatically over the past 40 years, the far-left MoveOn.Org folks want you to believe that breathing the air is like being a pack-a-day smoker - broadcasting disinformation in this TV ad bashing Senators Blanche Lincoln (D-AR), Ben Nelson (D-NB), and Mary Landrieu (D-LA):
For those not wanting to watch the video, the ads show little leaguers, a mother and her bottle-feeding infant, track athletes, and even a mother giving birth all smoking cigarettes. As images of these subjects flash by, the text of the ads say:

(3) Return every penny to anyone whom the ads frightened or angered into contributing money to MoveOn.Org.
MoveOn has a long history of misleading and false claims, statements and advertising, so this recent ad campaign comes as no surprise. It's simply what the far-left does whenever it doesn't want truth and facts to get in the way of its agenda.
