    To draw attention to global warming? Are people at WWF so out of touch that they think there might be some hermit in a cave that hasn't heard about global warming? How did the marketing genius' at WWF come of with this? "Hey! I bet there's a lot of people who haven't heard about global warming. Let's do something to draw some attention to his disaster in the making!"
