Something to Crow about!

Well, Sheryl Crow is having another media moment by suggesting the restriction of toilet paper usage as a way to save the planet. If every Hollywood star were to start restricting their toilet paper usage, do you think it will make a significant difference in the lives of polar bears and penguins? Probably not.

Why don't those celebrities who, in their self importance, want to do something for the planet choose to take the Personal Energy Ethics Pledge:

This is the same pledge former Vice President Al Gore refused to sign when Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla) presented it to him during his sermon at the Washington Global Warming Hearing.

I doubt if those Hollywood celebrities would dare lower themselves from their luxurious lifestyles to make a significant change for the sake of the planet. Instead, they can assuage their guilt for their wasteful lifestyles by purchasing more carbon credits in the hope of saving their environmental soul.
