Environmentalist With Cleavage: Brockovich Hits Australia

erinbrocovich.jpgThe self-billed “Environmentalist With Cleavage”, Erin Brockovich, is in Australia to tackle the issue of climate change on behalf of a bipartisan organisation fielding upper house candidates for a late March election. Brockovich — whose character was played by Julia Roberts in the move, Erin Brockovich, is determined to “keep the bastards focused”. From the article,

“‘We all breathe the same air,’ she said. ‘Potentially (climate change) could be a huge problem. There is change happening globally resulting in droughts, fires, flooding, tornadoes where they shouldn’t happen, animals migrating to places they didn’t before. If Mother Earth dies, so do we. She needs some allegiance from us.’ ‘Global warming might be just that, but the solutions lie with individuals,’ Ms Brockovich said.”

She also was pretty clear on how she feels about the upcoming Presidential elections. “I think our country is ready for a change,” she said. “I think Hillary Clinton is a worthy opponent and very capable of winning the Democratic nomination. She would be the person that I am going to vote for.” What?! Someone not under the Obama spell? Shocking.

Brockovich was recently involved in supporting families of Hinkley, CA in fighting a proposed green composting manure site outside of town.  While she’s eco at heart, apparently the plant would have released a smelly by-product and hordes of flies on residents. Yum. Hit the link for more on Brockovich down under.
