The 2007 Global Warming Globie Awards: Time to Vote!
The good folks over at Environmental Defense are further validating global warming's place in the sun by launching the first awards to recognize the best (and worst) global warming performances: the Globie Awards. They've selected five global warming categories with four nominees each, and you get to help select the winners. Many of the nominees will be familiar to the greater TreeHugger readership, with the work of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Greg Nickels recognized in the "Best Performance by a State or Local Official" category, for starters. Yahoo! Autos & GE's Ecomagination initiative are among the nominees for "Best Performance in the Corporate World," as are The Weather Channel's One Degree and Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth in the "Best Film, Documentary, or Website Focusing on Global Warming" category. On the minus side, "Worst Performance by a Corporation or Corporate Official" includes Exxon Mobil and TXU, while Senator James Inhofe, writer Michael Crichton and the Competitive Enterprise Institute are among those who will make it a close race for "Most Egregious Contribution to Public Ignorance and Denial." Winners will be announced on February 23 (that's next Friday), so engage in the democratic process and make your voice heard here. ::2007 Global Warming Globie Awards via ::Green Options
