MTV is taking some heat for its refusal to broadcast an
advertisment for Buy
MTV, the channel that markets itself to
hip youth, has decreed that our Buy Nothing Day public service spot
“goes further than we are willing to accept on our channels”. Gangsta
rap and sexualized, semi-naked school girls are okay, but apparently
not a burping pig talking about consumption.
The single best way to blunt the impact of climcate change is to get by
with less of everything. Mostly, what it takes is a
willingness to ignore peer pressure.
