America's French Friends Equate 911 With Global Warming


"Les Américains sont nos amis", they say, and Nicolas Hulot proves France's friendship by making an ad (merci à RV) that equates the murder of 3,000 Americans with… (with what? with global warming?!?!) by showing the trunks of a couple of trees (!!) standing like the Twin Towers on 911 being hit by hijacked airplanes (or the equivalent thereof) with the slogan For Nature, Everyday is 9/11
