Kate Middleton is under a lot of pressure - now that she's royalty he world is watching her every move. However some of us are less concerned about where she got her hair done, and are more interested in how she'll use her title for good. She's currently deciding which charities she wants to be involved with, and it seems like she's got a thing for children, much like Princess Diana. It's a good time to be a kid in need - non-profit events she's attended in the past have raised millions of dollars.

James Cameron is partnering up with Disney World to create an Avatar theme park. Which sounds really cool except that there's no talk of of a sustainability initiative, even though Cameron claims the movie was all about eco awareness. Makes you wonder why this addition is going to cost $400 million, especially since a lot of dreams could come true around the world with that money

Fortunately James Cameron is involved with something truly green - he's joined many familiar faces like Mark Ruffalo, Orlando Bloom and Kevin Bacon in Global Green's I AM Campaign, a PSA to keep climate change on the tip of everyone's tongues. This video focuses on the threat of rising sea levels on coastal cities and the 150 million Americans who live in them. They're urging us to demand that green jobs are created, which is an easy request for out of work environmentalists...until you click on the join the fight button and realize they're asking for money...kinda a catch 22.

Richard Branson and basketball star Yao Ming have teamed up to ban shark fin soup, a cruel Asian dish that kills 73 million sharks a year! Branson is so passionate about this that he swam with sharks, suggesting that this scary aquatic life is much gentler than the business people he usually deals with

Whales are getting some media attention too - the heart warming true story of a whale rescue in 1988 is coming to the big screen. And who better to bring tears to our eyes than Drew Barrymore, with comic relief from John Krasinski from The Office. Big Miracle comes out in February, which is smart timing given that Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johnanson's documentary The Whale just debuted in NYC this week. It's certainly a great time to be a whale movie aficionado
