World Scientists confirm Humans cause Global Warming

Stop Global Warming Virtual March
IPCC Report

The Eiffel Tower switched off its 20,000 flashing light bulbs in a five-minute blackout to call attention to the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report. This historic report presented unequivocal conclusions by more than 2,000 scientists in 150 countries who spent 6 years culling the latest research.

As Dr. Dan Lashof, at NRDC’s Climate Center, stated: “This new IPCC report makes it clear that global warming is here now, and we must take swift and effective action to stave off the most severe consequences.”

In a related story, a think tank partly funded by Exxon Mobil sent letters to scientists offering them up to $10,000 to critique the IPCC report’s findings. A recent report from the Union of Concerned Scientists said Exxon spent $16 million between 1998 and 2005 funding “organizations that seek to confuse the public on global warming science.”

There’s no better place to witness the disruption of ecosystems and cultures by global warming than the Arctic. This February 14th, Will Steger and his team of Inuit hunters, explorers and educators, will embark on a 1200-mile, four-month-long expedition across the Canadian Arctic’s Baffin Island to get a first-hand look at how global warming is impacting the landscape, wildlife, and human communities.

You can follow Will Steger’s Global Warming 101 Expedition at to learn what is happening to the region.

Special thanks to our latest featured marcher Barenaked Ladies and their “Ships and Dip” four-day rock cruise aboard the Carnival Legend for their efforts in signing up new marchers. The cruise last month, also featuring SGW partner Guster, not only provided fans with some great music, but also a valuable opportunity to learn about stopping global warming and maintaining an eco-friendly lifestyle. They quadrupled their goal of making the cruise carbon neutral, and over 4000 tons of CO2 was offset through participation of the band, Native Energy, and the fans, equivalent to over 8 million miles not driven in a car. Great job!

This week the Virtual March grew to over 620,000 marchers! Recent partners include Diesel, Mixed Market,, Spas of America, Rock the Vote, Carbon Solutions Group, Zooey, professional snowboarder Gretchen Bleiler, sports agent Leigh Steinberg, and Pro Football Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon.
