By now, everyone is having fun with the amusing Competitive Enterprise Institute ads with the following slogan : "Carbon Dioxide: They Call it Pollution. We Call It Life." I have little to add, except a few parodies:

1. Earth: They call it being buried alive. We call it life. 2. Air: They call it tornadoes. We call it life. 3. Fire: They call it arson. We call it life. 4. Water: They call it drowning. We call it life.
