Brad Pitt is offering himself up for auction. Well, just for a day. If your pockets are deep enough you and a friend can get a private tour of one of his green homes in New Orleans, which includes a night at a swanky hotel, dinner by an award-winning chef, and more celeb mingling at a gala. Last time I checked the highest big was around $15,000. It's good to know that the 1% are spending their money wisely!
Kevin Bacon has joined forces with the Natural Resources Defense Council by narrating a video about protecting the world's last 400 Spirit Bears and their rainforest home. They're threatened by Enbridge's proposal to build an oil pipeline in the area, which we can't trust due to the energy company's appalling record of over 700 spills in the past 10 years, so here's what I propose - send the big wigs to scout the area, then sick all the bears on them. It'd be the greatest example of natural selection.
In other oil news, Robert Redford also made an NRDC video to personally thank President Obama for not approving the Keystone XL Pipeline that would have linked tar sands in Alberta to refineries in Texas. Hard to tell if this was a decision based around true concern for the environment, or a political tactic to show off his ability to keep his promises, but who cares! If making the country healthier and greener is just a way to manipulate voters, then so be it!
The CW has figured out the one way to get teenagers to care about climate change - getting their stars to go half nude. Wilson Bethel from 'Hart of Dixie' explains that the show is helping out by cutting wasteful wardrobe and that you too should give a shit, I mean shirt for a cooler better world. As wonderful as it is that a big network is encouraging teens to go green, this ad kinda seems like a desperate plea for more people to watch his show.
Twitter co-founder and animal-lover Biz Stone admitted in a video that he wishes people were more like turkeys because they're intelligent, social, curious, and sometimes even funny. Thus, he's sticking with his vegan diet and eating delicious vegetable dishes for Thanksgiving at Farm Sanctuary's Celebration for the Turkeys. And, rumor has it he's thinking of changing the name of his company to Gobble.
