Cate Blanchett will Drink Her Own Urine to Stop Global Warming
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.
