“Marlboro Earth: Saving the Environment One Customer at a Time”

Mother Earth Needs YOU to Smoke!How do we best save the earth? By heroically decimating humanity, of course. From The Onion, that last bastion of parodic commentary so true it hurts, perpetually raising the bar in fearless journalistic  pursuit of answers:
