National Ad Campaign to Contrast Al Gore’s Lifestyle with his Calls to Restrict Energy

Washington, D.C., March 7, 2008—The Competitive Enterprise Institute will launch a national ad campaign on Tuesday, March 11, focusing on the threat to affordable energy posed by Al Gore’s global warming agenda.

In May, 2006, CEI stirred international controversy with a pair of CEI ads on global warming alarmism, which carried the tagline “CO2: They Call It Pollution; We Call It Life.” Those ads can be viewed on be viewed on, here and here.
