The Sierra Club, Project 3650.org, and Pecos Pictures just got an Emmy for Public Service for the animated short, "Big Fun with Global Warming." (No, you didn't miss the ceremony on TV, the Academy hands out public service awards at a nice lunch, not at a televised extravaganza.) This is only the second time the Emmy organization gave out an award in the category of National Public Service Announcement/Broadband, that is, the cartoon never played on traditional television, but found its viewers over the Internet, cell phone, or other portable devices.

The video features "Stinky," a "nasty little office man" who thinks global warming is "a bunch of hooey." Check it out here.
