Thanks to readers who tipped us off to the Wall Street Journal scoop that traced a popular YouTube parody of "An Inconvenient Truth" to Washington lobbying firm DCI, whose clients include Exxon.

First up below is an ABC report from that great Tapper guy, and below that, the "spoof" itself. We have to say, it's pretty well done -- it looks authenticallly amateurish, inspired and completely dopey, like a real YouTube parody.
