Cate Blanchett will Drink Her Own Urine to Stop Global Warming

September 18, 2007

This is how much Cate Blanchett cares for the environment and stopping global warming:

Blanchett will have a few blessedly domestic weeks in Sydney, where Dash will start the new school year and she and Upton will work on renovating their house. Green before it was hip—she cites Al Gore and David de Rothschild as heroes and believes that leaf blowers “sum up everything that is wrong with the human race”—the couple are trying to make the ecological footprint of the home as small as possible, installing solar panels and even a filtration system that will allow them to drink their own wastewater.

She believes that leaf blowers sum up what is wrong in the world? Wow, she is deep. And all this time I thought what was wrong with the world was terrorism, the war, poverty, healthcare, and George W Bush. I know there was a town that tried to ban leaf blowers to help save the environment, I think it was Cambridge Ma., but I forget.

She is going to filter urine so that her family can drink it, but how is that supposed to save the environment? She doesn’t say. Are they saving water, thereby saving the environment? I don’t know, but these people just get nuttier and nuttier. It almost seems like they are trying to outgreen each other. It is almost to the point of them trying so hard to be the greenest that they no longer even ask if what they are doing makes any sense. I’ll drink to that, Cate, uh, them again, maybe not. I hope the read all the water softener reviews and get the best thing out there, yuk! I thought Sheryl Crow went over the top when she said we should only use one square of toilet paper, and also prposed removable sleeves so you could wipe your mouth on your sleve and replace it with a clean one. But drinking your own urine, and making your children do it also takes the cake.

    Perhaps she fears global warming induced droughts, nuclear holocaust, the water and sewer bill or just a downhill career slide.

    This is the problem with global warming theory, it is fashionable to believe in it and to make films, sport bumper stickers and do highly improbable things in the name of fighting the invisible menace. Then we get to watch them tear each other apart and name call if they think someone isn’t as green as they are. For instance, PETA protesting Al Gore for eating chicken.

    It’s sad. I’ve always liked her too. Why do the good ones always get all loony?

    Sydney is in intense drought. We cannot even water our gardens or wash our cars except for during a designated period of a couple of hours one night a week. We also have to time our showers and have water police who give on the spot fines to people who turn sprinklers on, hose their driveways, water plants—any unsanctioned use of water. I don’t expect you to understand, as America has no water problems, and it does sound a little wrong to drink filtered waste water, but that is precisely one of the solutions our government is proposing to help ease the problem. Other governments all around the world have developed methods of treating and filtering waste water for reconsumption and it is a perfectly safe and clean water source. At the moment, the government is facing a lot of resistance to this particular proposition, for obvious reasons, so Cate spoke out as an influential Australian and climate change activist as someone who would gladly install her own mini version of the system to do her bit for the environment. It’s not loopy, it’s not new and although I struggled with it myself initially, it’s actually not gross.

    So there you go, once again the media has taken something out of context! Also, re the leafblower, that was symbolic. I thought that was obvious.
