Pirates of the Caribbean, Orlando Bloom’s new film, is a hit — grossing $401m since Wednesday, beating the $ 382m six-day total achieved by Spiderman 3 earlier in the year. However, Bloom has swapped his pirate gear for something a little warmer. Earlier this year, he traveled to Antarctica to see first-hand the damage global warming has inflicted on the ice caps.

The actor was inspired to make a stand after seeing, “how tragically fragile the ice caps are.” Bloom insists that the debate about the environment is not all “doom and gloom.” He believes that, “Life is about balance, and we all have to make the effort in areas that we can to enable us to make a difference.”

Orlando, a committed environmentalist, was reported to have shared a bathroom and toilet with 27 other individuals, as well carrying out other menial tasks such as dish washing and laundry duties.

    I too am a concerned environmentalist, and I have a fear about how my future may turn out. Being as young as I am, I don’t really have much of a future as well as our younger generation.I am only 14 and my two favorite actors(OrlandoJ.B.Bloom and LeonardoW.DiCaprio) both have a strong bond with nature. If everyone cared as much as we do we could really turn things around and stop global warming. In fact on my 36th birthday(Friday April 13,2029)it has been said that the earth is going to be hit by an asteriod. That scares me to, but it’s not to late.

    wohw Isis, i didn’t know that when it’s 2029 that the earth is going to be hit by an asteriod..
    Damm!!! that scares me even more!!!
    Seriously we all need to take this serious!!
    I mean what about the next generation of the world, how are they going to survive??
    Ever since i’ve heard Orlando talk about the Global Warming i’ve decided to not use my mobile that much no more, cause I really do believe that even one person can make a chance!!!
    So why not do It??!!
