Global Eco-Nuts: What could go wrong with Big Government?

A satirical promotional video for the 10:10 initiative shows global warming skeptics being brutally killed at the push of a button. The sponsors have subsequently apologized and removed the video. See it here while you still can.
From the 1010uk website: "With climate change becoming increasingly threatening, and decreasingly talked about in the media, we wanted to find a way to bring this critical issue back into the headlines whilst making people laugh. 
We were therefore delighted when Britain's leading comedy writer, Richard Curtis - writer of Blackadder, Four Weddings, Notting Hill and many others – agreed to write a short film for the 10:10 campaign. Many people found the resulting film extremely funny, but unfortunately some didn't and we sincerely apologise to anybody we have offended. As a result of these concerns we've taken it off our website. We won't be making any attempt to censor or remove other versions currently in circulation on the internet."

Can we have the names of those focus group members that tested and found this funny? Can we get a Registry set up for  Econ-nuts for public safety?

I am confident the opposition in Canada have no problem with a two billion dollar project.
