All ya'll get to vote on the most dangerous environmentally dangerous a*-hole of the year!
Ready for a little environmental catharsis? Help us pick the most outrageous eco-villain of 2010.
The Center for Biological Diversity established the Rubber Dodo award in 2007 as a way to spotlight those who do their very best -- that is, worst -- to destroy wild places and drive species to extinction. The award, named after the most famous extinct species on Earth, is given out every year.
This year, we need you and everyone you know to cast a vote and send a message that endangered species can't be shoved aside for dirty oil development, petty politics or ineffectual government. So vote now for the 2010 Rubber Dodo award and then share this on Facebook, Twitter, blogs and with anyone you know who cares about protecting wild animals and plants.
Previous recipients of this prestigious faux-accolade were land speculator Michael Winer (2009), polar bear opponent Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (2008) and Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne (2007), who set a record low in the number of plants and animals he placed on the endangered species list.
There was no shortage of nominees this year: BP CEO Tony Hayward (Gulf oil spill), Interior Secretary Ken Salazar (ineffective spill response, reluctance to save imperiled species), Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter (wolf opposition) and Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell (opposing species protections, pushing dangerous oil and gas development.)
Cast your vote for the Rubber Dodo award by October 3 for one of these four or write in your own nominee. We'll announce the winner in early October.
