Skip to comments.James Cameron Gets Matt Damon, Harrison Ford and Arnold Schwarzenegger for Climate Hysteria Series
Posted on 11/01/2013 7:51:02 AM PDT by rktman
Showtime announced last year that it had commissioned Oscar-winning filmmaker James Cameron to produce an eight-part series for the network designed to scare the public into thinking the world is doomed as a result of global warming.
Coincidentally on Halloween, the cable network released a trailer for the April 2014 series entitled Years of Living Dangerously and credits that identify key Hollywood contributors such as Jessica Alba, Matt Damon, Harrison Ford, and Arnold Schwarzenegger (video follows with commentary):

Harrison is just doing it to get the young Hollywood skanks.
I might help if the (gray) hair on his chest grows back. Remember he had it waxed off to protest forest destruction. What a friggin’ didiot. I hope it hurt like hell.
The freeloading communist libs just won’t give it up. This hoax and scam is over.
Wow, this is like trying to convince people to go back to wearing polyester and mood rings.
It may well be over but that isn’t stopping the didiots from continuing to dump gazillions of tax dollars in to prevention scams.
The Goebbels of our time.
HUH? You mean you haven’t? I just picked up some stacked heel boots the other day to go with my 2nd hand leisure suit. LOL! (I never had either the boots or suits:>))
A meeting of the mindless.
Good thing they all have their own private jets.
More concerted effort to brainwash the lo-info voters (obviously)
I heard Jerry Weintraub is also producing this schlock. Jerry was a G Bush supporter so looks like he has gone limp too
What he knows that is incorrect about Science could fill every library that is or ever was including the library that was at Alexandria. I think they even had a section called “What a fellow from the future named Matt Damon will never know about Science” that had 10 rows of books.
It's a shame that Ford has succumbed to nonsense to impress the Hollywood misfits in the hopes of getting another movie deal.
Not too surprised about Arnold. He done lost his mind long ago.
"Science is hard, thinking is hard..."
I suppose Schwarzenegger, while he's at it, can offer up some marriage counseling, parenting tips, and the like.
“I don't know nuthin’ and you should be ashamed that you know sumphin’.
Come on, be cool with me and scrape your brains out like you would before carving a pumpkin.
Remember to ridicule those that do know sumphin’. It's important.
Join the ‘don't know nuthin’ crowd. We're cool!”
~Matt Damon (paraphrase)
NEW RULES: Anyone who has more than 2000 square feet of living space per person cannot complain about global warming nor accuse others of climate crimes.
Anyone who uses a private jet, cannot complain nor accuse others.
Anyone who flies horses around the world like Bruce Springsteen, cannot complain nor accuse others.
Anyone who owns horses, period, cannot complain nor accuse others.
feel free to add more rules.....
As long as he’s rounding up all the science experts in Hollyweird, he probably ought also recruit Meryl Streep, given her technical expertise on growth inhibitors like Alar - I’m sure she knows as much about physics, climatology and chemistry as she does about toxicology, which is about as much as the rest of that crowd does.
ARTHUR: What happens now?
BEDEMIR: Well, now, uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I wait until nightfall,
and then leap out of the rabbit, taking the French by surprise —
not only by surprise, but totally unarmed!
ARTHUR: Who leaps out?
BEDEMIR: Uh, Launcelot, Galahad, and I. Uh, leap out of the rabbit, uh
BEDEMIR: Oh.... Um, l-look, if we built this large wooden badger—
cameron in all his titanic documentaries comes across as a big douche.
Makes you wonder how much work he did and how much work of others he is taking credit.
he is currently working with disney animal kingdom to make a “dances with smurfs” (aka avatar) ride/area.
Steroids? I mean, did you ever really look at Maria Shriver? I mean come on. Her dad only made Sargent. LOL!
Will this run on Comedy Channel or SyFy? It could really hurt their ratings.
And, don’t forget jane fonder. She could weigh in on “nucular” power plants.
How RELEVANT are these types! Let’s have some mega-millionaires preach social consciousness to us when-like Ford- they own many gas-guzzling means of transport. Cars, planes, helicopters. Ford has a hangar full of planes and helicopters and I don’t think they use solar cells as fuel. It’s like them railing against US having weapons when they make their money in violent films and are protected by armed body guards.
In Ford’s case he’s in his 70’s, so add senility to the list. Limited number of years left that we have to put up with his stupidity.
Showtime cancels The Borgias and comes up with this garbage - time to disconnect.
“I suppose Schwarzenegger, while he’s at it, can offer up some marriage counseling, parenting tips, and the like. “
But not birth control!
Fords nitch is action/adventure films because his acting ability is limited(he is no Shaun Connery) , but an old gezzer like him still trying to play Indiana Jones is pathetic.
He's lucky no one will finance a movie where he plays Hans Solo again.
Don Cheadle is one of the morons promoting this ....he’s been out here in our little west texas town with his the crew filming damage from the drought and how it’s destroyed the economy, etc .....then they bring in some global warming Nazi from Texas Tech to give a lecture the local farmers on how horrible it is and we’re all going to die, etc. .....people here are about as naturally conservative as can be, but they don’t know that they’re about to be used as props for a bunch of communist propaganda ... the local paper is enamored to have a “celebrity” in town, so they are just going along with it as something exciting .....
Don’t be so sure. He’ll probably be Han again-but die onscreen. Which should have happened long ago. I mean, how many kids want to play with Grandpa ‘action’ toys? The saddest thing is he is playing Solo in real life-flying planes and helicopters in his 70’s. No sane Wookiee would fly with him.
C’mon doesn’t the public want to see an 80 year old Indiana Jones with a whip? Talk about kinky!
Like john f’n heinz kerry, I’m amazed that common folks are so star struck and think these people have even a modicum of intelligence. Hmm. People pay me scads of money so I MUST know something. I are brilliant. Didiots!
Shaun Connery is a perfect contrary example
Because he knew how to act (unlike Ford) and had talent he voluntarily gave up James Bond before he started looking old, the exception being that one last JB film he made in 1983 for old times sake. And he didn't look bad in that with a hairpiece and makeup in that one, but he knew that would be his last.
Wonder how much carbon they burn doing one of their average movies? Can you say hypocrites?
Pray America is Waking Up
Someone should make a film set in 1970 and portray eco-nuts doom and gloom on global freezing and the population bomb and how we will all be dead before the year 2000.
Doesn’t all their bull-shit produce a lot of methane gas?
Coming nuclear wars will take care of the global warming problem!
Wonder what you would find if you frisked liberal Hollywood and all the celebrities that preach ‘going green’?
Answer: Apparently it’s easier said than done.
Ugh, I love Hollywood and all the wealth it dumps on top of celebrities. Notice how I typed that sentence out trying to be sarcastic as I possibly could. Now don’t get me wrong, I have absolutely no problem with celebrities making their millions. Heck, I wish I had the acting talents to do the same thing! The beef I have is directed towards those in Hollywood who feel the need to spew liberal talking points, pretending to be the world’s best humanitarians, and meanwhile doing the complete opposite. In other words, being one of America’s best hypocrites:
Hypocrisy is the vice we find hardest to forgive, but its also the one we most enjoy discovering in others. And nothing piques our interest more than eco-hypocrisy as practised by the green celebrities who have been spouting green virtue but spewing out hundreds of tons of carbon from their private jets or multiple holiday homes around the globe.
There was Sheryl Crow, who had called upon the public to refrain from using more than one square of toilet paper per visit (except on those pesky occasions when two or three are required) and who was leading a Stop Global Warming concert tour across America. It was revealed that while Crow travelled in a biodiesel tour bus, her 30-person entourage followed in a fleet of 13 gas-guzzling vehicles.
John Travolta notoriously encouraged the British public to do its bit to fight global warming after flying into London on one of his five, yes, five private jets (one of which is a Boeing 707). In 2006 his piloting hobby produced an estimated 800 tons of carbon emissions, more than a hundred times the output of the average Briton, according to the Carbon Trust.
It is less well known that Tom Cruise who has campaigned for the LA-based environmental group Earth Communications Office also has an air fleet and a licence to pilot his five planes, including a top-of-the-line customised Gulfstream jet he bought for his wife, Katie Holmes.
Think that’s it? Not at all. Even the Queen of Daytime Television is guilty of being part of Hollywood’s hypocrisy. That’s right folks… Oprah! Tisk, tisk, tisk:
Oprah Winfrey, who preaches eco-virtue from her TV pulpit, travelled in a 13-seat Gulfstream IV private jet for years the preferred model for celebrities and the super-rich. (She has replaced it with a faster Bombardier Global Express.) The public first became aware of her private-jet habit when her plane had to make a forced landing in California in 2005; it was reminded of it this year after one of her stewardesses was fired for allegedly having sex with the pilot while Oprah and other passengers were asleep.
Now these Hollywood stars are just pathetic:
Jennifer Aniston told reporters that to save the Earths precious water resources she brushes her teeth while in the shower. But she also flew a hairdresser to Europe to accompany her on a recent publicity tour for the film Marley & Me.
Perhaps more egregious, because she is a much more in-your-face global-warming campaigner, is Dame Trudie Styler, film financier and wife of Sting. Not only do she and her husband run seven homes and travel between them in private jets and a fleet of cars, but in 2007 an employment tribunal revealed Styler was furious when her pregnant chef refused to travel 100 miles to prepare some soup and salad. (The chef had regularly made the trip in the past, travelling by train and taxi.) And Sting recently had to contend with accusations that the Police were the dirtiest band in the world because of the scale of their last tour and the carbon footprint of the fans who went to see them.
U2s latest world tour features three stages and a giant claw that ensures as many spectators as possible get a decent view. Alas, transporting the whole shebang around the world is estimated by carbonfootprint.com to produce the carbon equivalent of the annual emissions of 6,500 British homes or a rocket trip to Mars and back.
Coldplays Chris Martin has been fingered as one of musics biggest eco-hypocrites. George Monbiot, a writer and environmental campaigner, noted on his blog that Martin flew thousands of miles on his private jet, including brief trips between LA and nearby Palm Springs. Monbiot calculated that Martins trips back and forth to see his family produced 250 times the carbon emissions of an average Briton.
And of course there’s a lot more including David Cameron, President Obama, and Mr. Going Green himself… Al Gore. You can read about the details in the rest of the article during your free time by clicking here. Trust me, it’s pretty interesting.
Ahhh yes… Now I remember why I dislike celebrities tossing out their opinions on how everyday Americans should live their lives and vote.
Hollywood… Please just shut up. Thank you.
One of James Cameron's homes. This one in Malibu.
Matt Damon's house in Miami Beach. No longer under construction, there is also a "bird's eye" view. Pretty large mansion, even by Miami Beach standards.
This little dump is Arnold's house...one of them....in the Los Angeles area. Of course he also has a place in Idaho. I don't know how many solar panels are there...can you count them all?
My point is this: these people live like NOT just the 1%, but the .001%, and they have NO business trying to dictate how we NORMAL people spend our money and live our lives.
Move along peasant. “WE” know what’s best for you so, you’re dismissed. Gotta love it. Heard that gloria estafan is renting out her place in the Miami area for $30K/mth
Matt Blank, CEO of Showtime....
Matthew C. Blank has made a significant and indelible mark on the cable television industry... He has garnered numerous industry awards.... Blank has also been honored by a number of other non-profit organizations. In 2001, he was the recipient of People for the American Way Foundation's prestigious "Spirit of Liberty" award at its 17th annual gala....
For those who don't know People for the American Way is an EXTREMELY liberal group...started by Norman Lear....
So Showtime is apparently headed by an extreme liberal.....
yes, well, i wonder who started that thread. ;)
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a ball of fire that controls our climates.
3. The earth is a rock.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?.....Bi-partisanship?
