It is not too early to start thinking about a nominee for the 2010 Environmental Hall of Fame/ or Shame. Please post your nomination, the reason that the nominee should be included and, if you wish, a suitable gift they might receive if they win. A link or reference to their accomplishments or misaccomplishments will increase their chance of being included in the final poll. Because of controversies surrounding last years nominees, nominations for Newsvine members will not be accepted.
At the end of the year, Nominees will be listed and a vote taken. The winner in each category will receive the "Most Noble (or Most Ignoble) Prize in Environmental Science" and a suitable gift. For instance, while John McCain might have deserved a framed picture of a trout swimming upstream in last years Fame category, this year he might deserve a picture of a trout flip/flopping on the bank in the Shame category. Let us hope that, after the election, he will flip back in and continue upstream. The winner in the Hall of Fame category will receive the "Most Noble Prize in Environmental Science" and a suitable gift as well. For instance, John Kerry might receive a gold star for his work on climate legislation or Arnold Schwarzenegger might receive a model electric car.
You may suggest a suitable prize for your nominee. Please be imaginative as particularly thoughtful or humorous nominations will receive recognition.
