Britain's advertising watchdog has banned two government adverts for overstating the threat from climate change, it said yesterday. The adverts used nursery rhymes including Jack and Jill to highlight the impact of global warming, but the Advertising Standards Authority said they exaggerated the risk. "Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. There was none as extreme weather due to climate change had caused a drought," read the copyline on one of the ads.
