Wouldn't it be great if everyone believed in climate change and was taking the necessary steps to reduce their impact on the Earth? We think so too. But is a video of climate activists pressing a big red button and disintegrating climate skeptics into a pulpy mess the right way to go about it?

That's under debate. A recent video made by British climate group 10:10 depicts different scenes in which those who doubt climate change are unceremoniously blown up by those who are taking action. Climate activists and climate skeptics alike are irked by the movie and what it depicts.

A formal apology on 10:10's website states, "we're all about trying new and creative ways of getting people to take action on climate change. Unfortunately in this instance we missed the mark. Oh well, we live and learn."

The group removed the video from their site, but will not make any further efforts to remove it from the Internet.
