Hollywood Getting into the Action [Video]

Hollywood, as a whole, is one of the most powerful entities (can I call it that?) in the world. Some of its biggest stars are getting involved in the politics of climate and clean energy now.

A great new video on the web featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Felicity Huffman, Forest Whitaker, Ed Norton, Justin Long, and others nails the key points of climate and energy legislation with the most popular language.

One of the stars even decides to drop his pants because of the heat (climate change).

First, the video sets the stage with the fact that this is about a specific piece of legislation in Congress. Next, Leo, Forest, Felicity, Justin and others cut right to the population’s top interest — economy/jobs. Rightfully so, they focus a lot on the fact that clean energy is the economic powerhouse of the future, and, as Obama said, “the nation that leads the clean energy economy will be the nation that leads the global economy.”

They also give quick mention to a couple of other more obscure or polarized but extremely important issues, the oceans acidifying (something outside the realm of “climate change” but caused from the same thing and, perhaps, equally or more concerning) and decreased national security due to our foreign oil addiction.

Coming back to the economy, they make sure to say that “it won’t increase the deficit.” Of course it won’t. It will stimulate the economy.

The video uses comedy mixed with serious concern to make the video fun and useful.
