Well, this was a good week for people calling out the problems of burning fossil fuels, especially oil!
As I shared over on Planetsave today, Brad Pitt went out of his way in a Daily Show interview with Jon Stewart this week to comment on the insanity of burning fossil fuels to power our cars.
If you’re interested in the second part of that interview, on Brad Pitt’s Make it Right organization, check out the Planetsave post.
But, before you go(!), here’s another must-see (or,.. hear)
video audio of Saudi Arabia’s oil minister telling us: “Greenhouse gas emissions and global warming are among humanity’s most pressing concerns. Societal expectations on climate change are real, and our industry is expected to take a leadership role.”
WOW, who would have guessed that? More honest than Fox ‘News’, the large majority of national Republican politicians today, and the Wall Street Journal (when it’s not allowing climate scientists to correct its mind-boggling op-eds from non-climate-scientists on global warming and whether or not we should be addressing it).
The fact of the matter is, of course, the negative effects of global warming are huge, humans are very clearly causing global warming, and the top things we can do to cut our global warming emissions are cut consumption of products from a less-than-green livestock industry, use clean energy such as wind and solar for our electricity and our vehicles, bike and use mass transit a lot more, and push for strong change politically.
Nice to see these guys pushing for part of that… in their own unique ways.

I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
