Film Production and Global Warming

I don’t have the time to look up the reference right now but I read somewhere recently (think it was a blurb in The Week) that film production was an incredibly huge contributer to the greenhouse effect and a huge waster of natural resources. I think it was listed as the 2nd worst offender nationwide… Apparently the generators and trucks and electricity usage really take their toll..

In either case, I was thinking that actors and directors (many of who are hard core environmentalists) could easily begin to effect change in this arena by simply refusing to work on films that don’t take an active stance on being c-neutral. I’m sure it wouldn’t take much to force producers and studios to start thinking about their energy usage and it would be a really good way for these celebs to use their clout for good..
