LONDON -- Britain's independent advertising watchdog agency has criticized a government ad campaign that highlights the dangers of climate change.

An Advertising Standards Association spokesman says nearly 1,000 complaints about the ads have been received.

The government campaign is based on the children's poems "Jack and Jill" and "Rub-A-Dub-Dub."

scary ad

climate change is pretty damn scary, but it is the adults who are in denial who are more scary. If kids are watching television, this fits into their viewing realm. Political ads, now that is something that kids should not be subjected to!
