The good folks at the "We Can Solve It" campaign are pretty much the biggest influencers that clean technology has. They promote legislation and education that will help America overcome its energy (and yes, economic) crisis.
So why on earth would ABC refuse to air one of their ads? That's right, the above ad (which contains far more truth than either Obama or McCain's ads have of late) has been rejected by ABC.
It is absolutely true that America's oil and coal lobbies have consistently blocked legislation and mis-represented facts about global warming to the American people. The travesty was when the oil lobby aired the "carbon is life" advertisement, not when the We Can Solve It campaign tried to set the record straight.
This is straight up, ABC protecting it's big-oil advertising revenue...I don't think there's any other way to look at it. The campaign is trying to get 100,000 public comments to ABC by the next airing of 20/20. You can go to their site and tell ABC how foolish they're being right now.
