about green things.
two years ago, it would have been nearly inconceivable for a studio executive to be turned on by a pitch for a film dealing with climate change based on a power point presentation given by a former vice president. the only thing green in Hollywood, then, was money.
but things are changing. slowly. and, while it's a bit trendy to be environmentally conscious now, the attention the state of affairs is getting can only be a good thing.
in the midst of progress, though, is severe irony. two days ago, president bush came to kansas city to praise two American car makers for building energy-efficient vehicles. but in the process of getting himself and his entourage here, he burned at least 1,100 barrels of oil. read about it here. good reporting by scott canon. so sad, but sometimes the truth hurts, i suppose.
