Who’ll win the coveted Flat Earth Award?
We chuckled when Bill McKibben mentioned the new Flat Earth Award on this site in January, and now we’re positively whooping with anticipatory glee. The winner of the prize — which was devised by a handful of Middlebury students to spotlight a public figure in deeeeeeep denial of global warming — will be announced next week. The three nominees are: oh-no-he-didn’t author Michael Crichton; oh-yes-he-did gasbag Rush Limbaugh; and oh-give-me-a-break naysayer Fred Singer. So go on, cast your vote now, and give one of these fatheads — uh, flatheads — his due!
P.S. Got any thoughts about who else should have been nominated? We’re all ears.
