Our nominees are working hard to turn earth into one giant feedlot!

How many chemicals can one man breathe? The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind ... Because the atmosphere is a great place to dump pollutants.

The equivalent of one garbage truck of plastic enters into our seas every minute, every day, all year long.

Coca-Cola was identified as the largest plastic polluter to our oceans globally.


Fire

for bringing us closer to a post-apocalyptic hellscape…

Presented by Abby Martin, Accepted by Leo Flowers

Imagine there’s no future. It isn’t hard to do.

These nominees are working hard to make tomorrow’s catastrophes happen today!

for outstanding efforts to break the human spirit…
