Green, Green, Green… It’s Radon, It’s Not Seen!
You’ve all heard the radio
ads by now from the EPA and the Ad Council, the publicly funded entities
responsible for public service announcements. And though the arrangement of the
tune is deliberately crafted to appeal to a wide range of musical tastes from
country to gospel to just a single child singing, the message is the same.
After the musical refrain that blatantly connects a “green” agenda to an unseen
gas, a spoken voice defines, for a dumbed-down public, exactly what the song
“Making it green
starts from the gound up...” even though the message is about getting
you to test your home for something completely invisible: Radon.
Talk about bait and
switch! Exactly what does the color “green” have to do with testing your home for
an unseen gas?
By turning off the
majority of Americans have come to realize the entire “green” phenomenon is
based on an elaborate hoax, the crucial message of radon awareness is lost.
So why is it important
for the average American to test their homes for the presence of radon (which
has nothing to do with the fantasy of
Anthropomorphic Global Warming)?
It comes down to defining
exactly what radon is (something that gets lost in the Ad Council’s disingenuous
connection to a “green” agenda).
What is radon? In layman's
is a cancer-causing radioactive gas.
You cannot see, smell or taste radon,
but it may be a problem in your home.”
So if you can’t “see, smell or taste radon,” then exactly
how did the EPA and the Ad Council make this connection between an invisible
gas and a “green” agenda? Instead of “making it green,” how about making it safe by emphasizing the genuine
danger, not a fabricated one?
By alienating the population who understand the
propagandized value of militant environmentalism, the EPA and the Ad Council
risk losing the opportunity to carry a valuable message to a wider audience!
