With the help of thousands of good people all across the Planet, Climate Denial Crock of the Week won the Brighter Planet Competition.

BrigherPlanet.com is a great organization that is making grants to worthy online projects related to climate change. For the 2 week voting period from may 1 to may 15, Climate Denial Crock of the Week was among the contestants for a 5000 dollar grant.

With an unbelievable surge during the last 24 hours, a colorful crew of the world’s most popular and influential YouTubers, led by DPRJones, participated in a blogtv webathon, that lasted 10 hours, spanned 10 time zones, and brought in the votes that not only put Climate Crocks on top, but smashed the record for votes in this competition. I am still reeling at the sheer, bloody minded generosity and endurance of DPR and all those who pitched in, including ZOMGitscriss, Thunderf00t, factvsreligion, ScouseCaspaXS,. and many others. The story of this heart expanding, trans-oceanic meeting of strangers would make a great little movie.

There is no shortage of energy…
