Robert Greenwald

Filmmaker and activist Robert Greenwald has produced an ad urging pressure on Home Depot to stop advertising on Fox News because of a purported editorial stance skeptical of man-made global warming.

The ad – as reports – features clips of Fox News hosts, commentators and interview subjects suggesting or insisting the widespread belief man is causing an ultimately catastrophic rise in global temperatures isn’t true.

Noting the home-improvement retail giant is “eco-friendly,” the ad says, “Tell Home Depot to stop supporting global warming lies.

Greenwald is the producer and director of “OutFoxed,” a film promoted as “an in-depth look at Fox News and the dangers of ever-enlarging corporations taking control of the public’s right to know.”

This time Greenwald, along with the Sierra Club and, urges views to sign a petition at

Greenwald, as notes, conducted a recent Internet campaign against a planned Fox News presidential debate in Nevada. He also is credited with pushing top-tier Democrats to pull out of a Congressional Black Caucus debate.

At the “Live Earth” event at Giants Stadium in New Jersey Saturday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. also called for pressure on advertisers that support media personalities skeptical of man-made global warming.

“The next time you see John Stossel, or Glenn Beck, or Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hannity – these flat earthers, these corporate toadies, lying to you, lying to the American public and telling you that global warming doesn’t exist – you send an e-mail to their advertisers and tell them you’re not going to buy their products anymore,” Kennedy said.
