(DECC website)The British government has been forced to pull two advertisements about climate change that were ruled misleading by the country’s advertising watchdog.The nursery rhyme themed ads were part of the Department of Energy and Climate Change’s “Act on CO2” print campaign, urging people to reduce their carbon footprint.In their review, released Wednesday, the ASA found the claims of extreme flooding and drought in the two ads “should have been phrased more tentatively” because of the lack of certain proof that such events are caused by climate change. The ASA rejected complaints about the other ads, including that they caused “fear and distress” for those who saw them.Britain’s climate change secretary, Ed Milliband, accepted the criticism but defended the campaign.Read moreOver the years, there have been many advertising campaigns to curb drinking and driving, smoking, starting forest fires, bullying, littering and other behaviour.PSAs: Which public service advertising campaigns have had an impact on you?Take our poll:Should the British ads have been banned?pollsPoll is not scientific.

My mom put me in front of a laptop one day and said “here, talk to Mormor.” It was the first time we could converse almost unlimitedly for a fraction of the price.

A redesign, both visually and logically, of the wiki can help streamline information gathering and make the wiki a more friendly place to spend some time. If it more approachable, the wiki can be something we proudly show off and hopefully be a huge benefit to those visiting for advice. Frankly, I think reddit as a platform does not inherently handle design well, so I not sure what flexibility an individual sub has on that..
