The 7 Most Retarded Ways Celebrities Have Tried to Go Green
 
[B][SIZE=4]The 7 Most Retarded Ways Celebrities Have Tried to Go Green[/SIZE][/B]



With the threat of global warming looming, it's more important than ever that all of us appear to care about the environment.


Maybe no one works harder on this than celebrities, who make it a point to show up in the papers every now and then with their latest eco-friendly gesture. We would applaud them for this, if it wasn't for the fact that the gestures are often mind-blowingly retarded.

The general theme seems to be:

Fly around in a private jet;

Lecture others about awareness and feel smug;

Plant lots of trees.

I just get a laugh at these people who think they are just so smart and we should listen to what they have to say about how to live our life. When they open their mouth we then see that they are not any smarter than the average person and are just blessed to have a talent because otherwise they would just be the average working Joe.

That's pretty damn funny.

I'm getting pretty tired of the hypocrisy, as well. They are challenging people to "think differently" to be more eco-friendly, but they, themselves, refuse to do so.

Did anyone see the "smug alert" South Park episode?

The sad part is, the message is good. We all need to do our part to try to conserve natural resources. There are folks that are hypocrites, but there are other celebrities that practice what they preach. I saw a special on Ed Begley Jr. (I was hung over and too lazy to pick up the remote to change the channel, came on Sunday Morning.) He uses rain water barrels, uses solar panels to partially power his home, walks and bikes to most evens in LA.

While you may not agree with everything someone does, most of those celebrities do more than the average Joe. As a country we burn natural resources like mad and need to cut down.

I agree, but that's the problem - you need more than a message, you need action. Organizing a huge event to raise awareness is great in theory, but when it completely goes against the message, you're basically saying "the ends justify the means".

Celebrities get on my nerves with this stuff because they assume that people view them as leaders.

In a King's Court, they would have been the court jester. The entertainers. Nobody looked towards the jester for leadership or guidance.

Fame does not equal a platform, at least not with me.

I'm a lot more apt to listen to Al Gore than these fart-sniffing Hollywood types.

I don't even know who Ed Begley is?

Really? I am not even 30 and I know who he is. Actor from St.Elsewhere a big time drama back in the 80's. He's been in a lot of other things but that's his biggie.

I didn't know him either.

Of course, that probably makes me more likely to take him seriously! If a celebrity I know starts spouting off about anything political, I immediately dismiss them.

buy al gore's carbon credits... he needs you're guilt money :/.
it's cool that he wastes so much energy, then makes up for it by paying himself with his own money. but he wants you to pay him with your money too...

capitalism at it's best!
