We've banned harmful alcohol & tobacco ads on TV & radio, why not fossil fuel ads too? Yes I mean you @npr @msnbc http://t.co/2StmNwNreY

Interestingly, this kinda ridicules Debs Arnott's point about advertising in her denial of the obvious plain packs domino theory which we are now seeing in real life.
[...] the “domino theory” i.e. that once a measure has been applied to tobacco it will be applied to other products is patently false. The same argument was used against the ban on tobacco advertising, but 9 years after the tobacco ban in the UK, alcohol advertising is still permitted with no sign of it being prohibited.Apart from the many 'signs' regularly hollered by the Royal College of Physicians, the BMA and Alcohol Concern, of course.
When there is a tobacco template in existence, no self-respecting prohibitionist would ever hesitate to follow it. All the more reason why the tobacco control industry should be cut off without a penny for the good of the country's future well-being.
