This is the SodaStream commercial CBS banned from airing during the Superbowl: Sodastream is a home carbonation system that touts itself as “Earth Friendly”: SodaStream is an “Active Green” solution that minimizes the huge eco-footprint caused by the manufacture, transport and waste of plastic bottles. SodaStream says its “vision is to create a  world free from bottles .” They claim that ”since January 2009, we have saved the world from over  1 billion plastic bottles .” Now it is is hard to see why CBS banned that ad gently ribbing the competition (albeit two Superbowl sponsors) — especially since last year NBC ran this ad by Chevy that (humorously) suggests you won’t survive the Mayan apocalypse if you drive a Ford truck [insert line here about trucks and the real apocalypse that's coming]. You shouldn’t shed a tear for SodaStream, however, since they will reportedly be airing a different commercial — and this ban has been a marketer’s dream , with the above ad being viewed more than 2.5 million times this week already.

How much extra energy are we putting in the atmosphere through emission of greenhouse gases? One Australian researcher put it into context : “The radiative forcing of the CO2 we have already put in the atmosphere in the last century is … the equivalent in energy terms to almost half a billion Hiroshima bombs each year.” With more energy radiating down on the planet rather than back up into space, the planet continues to heat up. As the atmosphere warms, it is able to hold more water vapor — thus strengthening the global hydrological cycle.
