"Hi, There, Energy Eaters"

Have you ever seen the Simpson's episode where the kids take a class trip to the power plant? They watch a cartoon about nuclear energy, in which Smilin' Joe Fission explains why nuclear energy is everyone's friend. Sure, it produces some nasty left overs, but as Smilin' Joe explains while sweeping the waste under a carpet, we can "just put it where nobody'll find it for a million years."

With that in mind, watch the new ExxonMobil commercial, the theme of which is: "Carbon Dioxide - They Call It Pollution, We Call It Life."

For a hilarious re-working of the commercial, go here. For the facts, go here, and here.
