    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!"
    For we are to God the aroma of Christ among those who are being saved and those who are perishing.
    To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?

    2 Corinthians 2:15-16
