The time has come for everyone to stand together and take steps to care about our withering environment. As global warming looms, it is time for us to take necessary action. Celebrities can do a lot about this. Many of them have appeared in the media now and then to show their eco-friendly gesture. Though their attempts are to be appreciated, some are mind-blaringly bizarre.
Paul McCartney in his attempt to go green bought a hybrid car from Lexus. The real problem is, it was flown in from Japan. By doing this, he has created several hundred times more emissions than it would ever save. It would have been better if he left it on the plane.
Jennifer Aniston, the active spokesperson of eco-friendly awareness, came up with a weird idea to save the planet. According to her, every two minutes of showering uses as much water as an African person uses for an entire day. So she decided to limit her shower to three minutes. Above all, she has decided to brush her teeth in the shower to save water. As per the dentists, you need two minutes to clean your teeth properly leaving her only one minute to clean the rest of her body.
Sheryl Crow came out with a more weird idea to save the planet. She decided to use one sheet of toilet paper per visit. But the problem is one sheet of paper is not enough. After a night of beer and a heavily-spiced food, two or three sheets will be nothing but a preliminary damage assessment.
Woody Harrelson was always an activist for environmental causes. He even claims to wear “vegan” clothes. During the Cannes Film Festival when he was taking part in a Charity Poker event, he forgot to take his vegan shoes and belt. You know what he did? He had them flown in from Californiain a jet.
Cold play celebrities go green by planting trees in many parts of the world. They claim that they have planted 1000 more trees. Planting a tree is not a bad thing but it is not a solution to the environmental issues. The reality is that, trees do not lock carbon emissions.
Al Gore is no exception. He organized a series of concerts with the aim of raising awareness on global warming. And what happened actually? These 150 artists around the world fly a total of 222,623 miles pumping 31,500 tons of carbon into the atmosphere for that single day alone.
