snipshot_d4vkfp1wffp.jpgTony Blair’s environmental record is highly respectable; but there’s something about the guy that I just don’t trust. Does he seem a little wishy-washy to you? It just appears sometimes that his dedication to green causes waivers every now and again. Well, one person with no such illusions is Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The actor-turned-politician has vocally championed the Prime Minister’s commitment to reducing climate change and labeled him an ‘action hero’. From the article,

“He says, ‘Inaction in the end will cost us hundreds of billions of dollars. So it is better to create the action, and Mr. Blair is the action hero.'”

The Last Action Hero, Governor Schwarzenegger? Sorry, couldn’t resist. Seriously though, you can take the man out of Hollywood, but you can’t take the Hollywood out of the man. I enjoy Arnold’s movie comparisons. It’s what makes him so completely different from the other politicians out there. It’s also fitting that a former “action star” would be in a position of power to actually help save the world from a future calamity. Thanks to Blair’s inspiring ways, Arnold has pledged to cut California’s emissions by 80 percent. If only other leaders throughout America were so inspired.
