Environment > Sheryl Crow Cast as Bond Girl in Next 007 Film, "Stinkfinger"

From Sherylcrow.com:

I have spent the better part of this tour trying to come up with easy ways for us all to become a part of the solution to global warming. Although my ideas are in the earliest stages of development, they are, in my mind, worth investigating. One of my favorites is in the area of conserving trees which we heavily rely on for oxygen. I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don't want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. When presenting this idea to my younger brother, who's judgement I trust implicitly, he proposed taking it one step further. I believe his quote was, "how bout just washing the one square out."

Which leads Don Surber to song:

All I wanna do is wipe my bum
I got a feeling I’m not the only one
All I wanna do is wipe my bum
Until the TP comes off the roll by the yard

Crow is on a tour to raise awareness about global warming. Tim Blair wonders about that:

Apparently Live Aid raised substantial funds for famine-wracked Ethiopia, and not a single one of the performers was caught hijacking grain from silos in Addis Ababa.

Live Aid spawned Farm Aid, a US agricultural benefit headlined by Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp and Neil Young. Again, no farms were incinerated, no farmers imprisoned, and no farm animals touched inappropriately – although they were subjected to the songs of John Denver.

Which brings us to Al Gore's international Enviropalooza concerts, scheduled for July 7. Called Live Earth, this 24-hour, seven-continent Gorefest is intended to "combat the climate crisis". Interesting way to go about it.

According to my colleague Paul Kent, writing on this last Thursday, the British leg of Live Earth could alone generate some 3000 tonnes of carbon – more than 300 times the amount generated by your average Britisher over an entire year.

Live Earth in another “unclear on concept” issues. Brought to you by Al Gore. Do as I say not as I do.

You have to wonder if Sheryl Crow and Laurie David really walk the walk. Do you wonder if deep in the catacombs of Sheryl Crow’s mansion is a five year supply of Charmin toilet paper?
