Because We Didn't Get an Oscar: Play Stars and Stinkers

Global warming is serious business, and this site has some pretty no-nonsense goals. There is, however, something to be said for having a little fun (and poking a little fun) every once in a while.

We created our flash game, Stars and Stinkers, to lighten things up, and to help raise awareness about global warming among a larger, celebrity loving and hating audience.

Go ahead, give it a try, and tell your friends. Below the game itself, there are a bunch of ways to link to the game. You can even download the source code and make your own version starring your local politicians or friends and neighbours.
