More Rube TV Destined for Failure: Welcome to the Enviro-Celeb Channel; Tommy Lee Tells You How to Live

By Debbie Schlussel
So, let me get this straight. A millionaire slacker has-been covered in tattoos, who allegedly gave his former wife Hepatitis-C and couldn’t even protect kids at his son’s birthday party (where one kid drowned to death in the swimming pool), is going to tell you and me how to live.
Yup, Tommy Lee, rapper Ludacris, actor Adrian Grenier, and other “Do As I Say, Not As I Do” celebs will star on “Planet Green,” a whole new Discovery cable television network centered on enviro-do-goodism, alleged global warming, and phony “greening” (unless you count green in their wallets–that stuff is real).
Grenier, of HBO’s “Entourage,” will star on “The Green Life,” one of the many preachy shows on this silly network starring a pyramid of public hypocrites. I would like to know just how much energy, film, and paper Grenier wasted in making and promoting his little-watched bomb of a documentary, in which he confronted his birth father. Did he recycle the movie posters and digital film prints, or are they polluting America in a landfill somewhere.

Tommy Lee & Ludacris: We Need These 2 To Show Us How to Live?!

If Planet Green really wanted to save the planet and reduce alleged global warming, the network would never exist. It creates alleged global warming by virtue of its very existence, which entails offices, electricity, energy, paper, lighting, etc., etc., etc. But “saving the planet” is really not the goal of this new cable channel. The goal is greening someone’s wallet with a different kind of “renewable” “green.”
Predictably hypocritical names associated with this network include Leonardo DiCaprio a/k/a Dicrapio, who is producing a “Green” show, and yet still lives in an energy-sucking mansion and flies alone on corporate jets, wasting yet more fuel. Green, indeed. Like I said of the others, he’s only green in his bank account.
Among other shows that are planned (no, I’m not making this up):

* “Wasted,” a contest adapted from a New Zealand format that offers cash to homeowners who cut out their “eco-horrors.”
* “Hollywood Green,” celebrity infotainment series, produced by Access Hollywood, with an eco-friendly twist.

Love that second one, in which I’m sure we’ll hear more fairy tales than from the Brother’s Grimm. Like, how Jennifer Aniston only takes 4-minute showers and brushes her teeth in the shower (she’s bragged about this to People) . . . even though, she has a gazillion-square-foot home that uses more energy than 34 average American homes do in a year. She’s from the fuel-guzzling corporate jet set, too. Oh, and all those times she eats out–not so green, when you count all of the energy to make and serve that food and keep the dining hall climactically comforting. All that gas wasted to get there and back. And all that waste created and thrown out. Oh, and the energy spent to launder the dirtied linens. Hmmm . . . very green, indeed.
Here’s my suggested programming for Planet Green:
* “Hollywood Green Wasted,” contestants get to tear down the majority of a famous enviro-preachy celebrity’s mansion–such as the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie estate–leaving only that portion, which will use only as much energy as does the average American.
* “Silicone Valley Excavations,” plastic surgery doctors normally doing humanitarian work for indigent children with cleft-palates will perform silicone implant removals from various artificially-endowed Hollywood starlets, so as not to pollute the ground when they ultimately die, are buried, and their non-biodegradable implants remain intact six-feet under. May have to have another show for dentists to remove those porcelain veneers. They’re not biodegradable, either. Sigh.

The Limousine Commiewood celebrities figure there’s a sucker born every minute. The media brainwashing is unrelenting.

I think Al Gore and celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio are doing a great job teaching us about the dangers of global warming and promoting the need for all of us to cut back on the pollutants we produce. In just the last few years Al Gore has pushed Global Warming to the forefront of global causes. It’s obvious we need to cut back on the amount of energy we use and the amount of gas we use. It’s not fair to the rest of the world that we use so much energy in this country and cause so much global warming. If voluntary cutbacks don’t reduce the amount of greenhouse gases we produce the UN and government have a responsibility to impose regulations and limitations on the products we use and the energy we use. People like to say that since Al Gore and Leonardo use private airplanes we should ignore the message. The reality is that Al Gore is so very important to the cause that he needs to use these airplanes to spread the message to the world. We should dutifuly reduce emissions evan more to cover those that Al Gore produces as a leader of the Global Community. :)

PrincessKaren, Leader of the global community! That’s an absurd statement to make. You probably also believe that Mr. Gore won an Oscar, and invented the internet. LOL. This is an article I found a year ago, don’t know where anymore but the truth is truly amazing.
Look over the descriptions of the following 2 houses and see if you can tell which belongs to “The one who calls himself an enviornmentalist.”
#1. A 20-room mansion(not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas, add on a pool(and a pool house) and a separate guest house all heated by gas. In ONE MONTH ALONE this mansion consumes more energy than the average American household in an ENTIRE YEAR. The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400.00 per month. In natural gas alone(which the last time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not in a northern or Medwestern “snow belt,” either. It’s in the South.
#2. Designed by an architecture professor at a leadingnational university, this house incorporates every “green” feature current home construction can provide. The house contains only 4,000 square feet(4 bedrooms) and is nestled on an arid high prairie in the american southwest. A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats the house in winter and cools it in summer. The system usues no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes 25% of the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into undergrouind purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The coolected ater then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Flowers and shrubs native to the area blend the property into the surrounding rural landscape.
HOUSE #1 (20 room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of Nashville, Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned environmentalist—AL GORE!
HOUSE #2. (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas. Also known as “the Texas White House,” it is the private residence of the President of the United States, George W. Bush.
So whose house is gentler on the environment? Yet another stroy you WON’T hear on CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, MSNBC, or read about in the NEW YORK TIMES OR THE WASHINGTON POST.
INDEED, FOR MR. GORE, IT’S TRULY “AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH.”

All I can say is sheesh-I think we should protect the enviroment, but come on. if living in a lzarge energy consuming house is eco friendly, than I am an eco saint for living in an average house. To princess karen do not depend on the UN for anything, they just do not like the U.S.

Guys, I think Princess Karen is being facetious.

JasonBourne81 on April 1, 2008 at 5:51 pm

Thanks Jason, I sincerly hope she is, it’s kinda hard to tell with written messages. The lack of voice inflection and facial movements makes it hard to discern sometimes.

A disgusting rock star and a thug rapper is gonna tell us how to live our lives.
I like discovery’s Animal Planet and Science Channel, but I doubt anyone will like this new channel. Of course it’ll be on every cable and satilite provider, yet some people who are shut out on more popular channels in certian markets will contuine to suffer.

After reading PK’s post I immediately changed the batteries in my sarcasm meter. I had to be sure that this poor “princess” wasn’t simply a brain washed gaia worshiper in the throes of an intense Goregasm.
I hope she was only being wry; but in these days of climate change hysteria, it is increasingly hard to tell the difference.

“Francamente, esos tatus se ven asquerosos!”
Frankly, those tattoos are disgusting!
