Stop Global Warming Virtual March

Join the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Sheryl Crow and Shaun White (Snowboarding Gold Medalist known as the Flying Tomato), among others in the Stop Global Warming Virtual March and become part of the movement to demand solutions to global warming now.

Leo's mission statement is:

Thousands of climate scientists agree that global warming is not only the most threatening environmental problem, but one of the greatest challenges facing all of humanity.

Why do I care? If we don’t act to curb global warming, names like Malaria, Dengue Fever and Encephalitis will be common place in America's hospitals. As temperatures rise, disease-carrying mosquitoes and rodents spread, infecting people in their wake. Doctors at the Harvard Medical School have linked recent U.S. outbreaks of dengue (‘breakbone’s) fever, malaria, hantavirus and other diseases directly to climate change.

I agree w/ bluejeanie. carpool. SF has it goin on w/ those electric busses, I'll give it that. ride a bike (unless you live in vt where you'd freeze your arse off). jog.. get yourself healthy while looking out for the earth (and polar bears, penguins, & us skiiers). I think though if you have money, look into solar panel roofing. There's people around here thhat have installed it & are actually giving energy (read: SELLING back) to the power companies. Honestly, as someone not making tons of money theres only so much we can do... BUT DON'T let that stop you... those people higher up in corporate america need to change their ways... there's more that they can do immediately that will help w/ global warming... but seriously, DON'T think that you can't make a difference. do your part, & maybe our sons & daughters will know what it means to have a white christmas, or chanauka, kwanza, boxing day, whatever...

lol, global warming isn't a "hippie" issue. it effects everyone, and people of all political affiliations.

GLOBAL WARMING SUCKS. I went to smuggs sunday & there was ONE trail open....ONE!!!!!!! I've never seen it like this, ever in my life. WTF! Listen I'm no tree hugging armpit growing hemp muncher, but I NEED SNOW. For skiing, snow angels, & snowball fights. I was watching discovery last night & they were saying that in areas where the diversity is low (ie polar regions) the ecosystem is most fragile... W/ the continuation of global warming say good bye to polar bears, penguins, seals, & eskimos... well maybe not eskimos. I love warm weather, but I love snow. It is seasons that make me live where I do. Winter spring summer fall, I feel for people who live in San Francisco where it never gets above 75 or below 45. WE NEED TO STOP GLOBAL WARMING.... or get used to living in arizona... I know, it's a dry heat... Please do your part... so I can ski. :)

i think the best way to help stop global warming is just stop driving so darn much! use public transportation, walk, and bike.

i am all for helping out with global warming too. $5 is definitely worth it if you ask me... anything helps and if its not as bad as we think it is now, then i am also all for my money being put towards helping it in the future, you know? Plus leo is a dreamboat :)

the climate moves in cycles. global warming is not as big of a catastrophe (yet) as people make it out to be. in 3 years it will be the coldest winter ever and after that it will be the wrmest winter ever, etc, etc. I agree we need to be more environmentally friendly, but it isn't quite the conundrum the media is making it out to be...and Gore's movie is just as silly as him having invented the internet... I'm all in.

I'm all for stopping Global Warming - It's so freaky how this winter is so warm. We should have had tons of snow by now. I'm sad for the Earth.
