Sterling-Cooper's Prescience on Global Warming


While it was not featured in any Mad Men episodes, I have to guess that this ad from 1962 was the product of Pete's uncanny ability to anticipate future developments combined with Peggy's efficient verbal craft.

I do wonder if Don signed off on it, however -- the exclamation mark at the end of the ad's headline doesn't strike me as a Don-friendly move. Maybe this ad was conceived and executed while Don was off jet-setting with the Eurotrash.
