Nominate Your Favorites for the 2011 Environmental Hall of Fame/Shame
Published 06th January 2012 - 0 comments - 1178 views -
Each year, the author takes a poll to find those most deserving to receive recognition in the Environmental Hall of Fame and the Environmental Hall of Shame. Nominations are now open for those who have most affected the environment by words or action. Please submit your nominations by placing them in the comment section. If you wish, you may include a short reason why your nominee should be chosen and suggest a suitable gift if they win.
For example, Congressman John Sullivan might be nominated in the Hall of Shame category for introducing a bill in the US Congress that would require the EPA to do a cost-benefit analysis for every rule it makes. His legislation would create a huge amount of paperwork for the EPA and would make its job impossible to do, which seems to be his goal. A suitable gift might be a large piggy bank in which to keep the donations that action has earned him. Or, Congressman Frank Lucas, chairman of the Congressional agricultural committee, might be nominated in the Hall of Fame category for acknowledging that climate change could affect our food supply. A suitable gift might be a crystal ball, so that he can show other members of the Congress what the future might look like if we do not act to mitigate climate change.
Nominations will be taken until January 31st, 2012 and a poll will be conducted in February to determine the winner in each category. The 2011 year’s winners will receive the “Most Noble Prize in Environmental Science” or the the “Ignoble Prize”and a suitable gift. Past year's winners and their gifts were:
Hall of Fame - Gift
2010 RealClimate.org - A recommendation from this site. ( Priceless)
2009 Benno Hansen, ThinkAboutIt Blogger - A Subscription to Science News.
Hall of Shame
2010 Koch Brothers -Being from the land of Oz, a petition to the Wizard for a social conscience.

You may suggest a suitable prize for your nominee. Please be imaginative, as particularly thoughtful or humorous nominations are appreciated and will be recognized.
