Anything that draws attention to our impending doom is worthwhile, but I'm not sure I understand how they are planning to make the jump from virtual to changing things in the real world.

A virtual march? That'll show'em.

Well, say one hundred million Americans sign up. I imagine this might change real-world politics.

Thanks for the tip. I see Sen. John McCain is a participant. I work on a federal project which, among many oceanographic uses, maps the navigational effects of global warming on homeland security. McCain has tried to shut down the project.

If this doesn't work, we'll have to resort to virtual terrorism. And once flaming GIFs start appearing on the map, you'll have no one to blame but yourselves.

Yes, sign me up for a virtual march to stop the natural cycle of climate change on the Earth. Lets all virtually leave the planet too, that will have as much impact as if we really left.

I guess it's more eco-friendly than everyone driving to washington.

Horray for desktop activism!

It'll sure show them when a billion Americans sign up!
