This is also a bit late, but here’s an interesting example of climate change (or anti-climate change) framing.

    Wow, this is a very interesting way to get peoples attention about anything including Global Warming. I think it is worth a try, anything that brings awareness to Global Warming I support. It will certainly get peoples attention I just hope people do not focus on their anger about the individuals that the billboard chose to represent instead of Global Warming. I am curious to see how successful this campaign is. It could definitely be misunderstood and perceived as a “shock value” gimmick. It will be very interesting if they put Osama Bin Ladens on the Billboard, I would anticipate a lot of resistance due to the amount of people that hate him and what he stands for.
