off its 20,000 flashing light bulbs in a five-minute blackout to call attention 
to the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Report. 
This historic report presented unequivocal conclusions by more than 2,000 
scientists in 150 countries who spent 6 years culling the latest research.
As Dr. Dan Lashof, at NRDC's Climate Center, stated: "This new IPCC report 
makes it clear that global warming is here now, and we must take swift and 
effective action to stave off the most severe consequences."

In a related story, a think tank partly funded by Exxon Mobil sent letters to 
scientists offering them up to $10,000 to critique the IPCC report's findings. 
A recent report from the Union of Concerned Scientists said Exxon spent $16 
million between 1998 and 2005 funding "organizations that seek to confuse the 
public on global warming science."

GLOBALWARMING101.COM: NO MORE ARCTIC?There's no better place to witness the 
disruption of ecosystems and cultures by global warming than the Arctic. This 
February 14th, Will Steger and his team of Inuit hunters, explorers and 
educators, will embark on a 1200-mile, four-month-long expedition across the 
Canadian Arctic's Baffin Island to get a first-hand look at how global warming 
is impacting the landscape, wildlife, and human communities. 
You can follow Will Steger's Global Warming 101 Expedition at 
http://www.globalwarming101.com/ to learn what is happening to the region.
environmental education campaign to combat global warming, Al Gore's 
documentary will be sent to every secondary school in England, over 3,385 
As Education Secretary Alan Johnson explained, "Children are the key to 
changing society's long-term attitudes to the environment. Not only are they 
passionate about saving the planet, but children also have a big influence over 
their own families' lifestyles and behavior."

VIRTUAL MARCH PARTNER OUTREACHSpecial thanks to our latest featured marcher 
Barenaked Ladies and their "Ships and Dip" four-day rock cruise aboard the 
Carnival Legend for their efforts in signing up new marchers. The cruise last 
month, also featuring SGW partner Guster, not only provided fans with some 
great music, but also a valuable opportunity to learn about stopping global 
warming and maintaining an eco-friendly lifestyle. They quadrupled their goal 
of making the cruise carbon neutral, and over 4000 tons of CO2 was offset 
through participation of the band, Native Energy, and the fans, equivalent to 
over 8 million miles not driven in a car. Great job!
NEW PARTNERS AND MARCHERSThis week the Virtual March grew to over 620,000 
marchers! Recent partners include Diesel, Mixed Market, Girlawhirl.com, Spas of 
America, Rock the Vote, Carbon Solutions Group, Zooey, professional snowboarder 
Gretchen Bleiler, sports agent Leigh Steinberg, and Pro Football Hall of Fame 
QB Warren Moon.
