This is how they make science 'accessible'...

Of course, they can only do it by poking fun at global warming skeptics...
Pecos Pictures has won the 2007 National Public Service Announcement/Broadband Emmy® Award. The award is for its "Big Fun with Global Warming" cartoon which is licensed to the Sierra Club website. The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences awarded the Emmy at its "Humanitarian, Public and Community Service Emmy Awards" ceremony on Nov. 9 in New York City.

"Big Fun stars a character called Stinky, who has serious doubts about the whole idea of Global Warming. He's a skeptic. Until the impact of global warming hits home with him....literally. It's classic Bugs Bunny, drop the anvil on 'em humor. Updated for the age of Global Warming," said the cartoon's creator, Mark Greene

"Humor is a great way to make the science behind global warming more accessible and more memorable to viewers," Greene said. Pecos Pictures, Greene's company, created two cartoons for the global warming campaign. Each are 90 seconds in length.
