freeman.jpgActor Morgan Freeman chatted with Grist Magazine in an interview recently and revealed his feelings on such subjects as biofuels (he’s on the board of teetering Earth Biofuels), the new BMW Hydrogen7, and his opinion on celebrities and activism. Here’s a snippet:

>>Grist: Critics admit the celebrity voice can help spread the gospel, so to speak, but is there a point where it becomes empty rhetoric, or even hurts the cause?

Freeman: We celebrities all know our trump card in this game is to pull focus. If we have an audience, and we have someone we can talk to and say, ‘This is a good idea,’ that’s it.

I’m not a speaker, so I don’t go to environmental events and get up on the podium. This is about as high as I am going to get, podium-wise … [Celebrities] start talking about something that we find — I don’t want to say of interest, but of necessity. It’s no different than pulling together to help people in catastrophic conditions. This qualifies. Our situation, with global warming and air quality and all of that, has gotten to be catastrophic. Otherwise, nobody would be paying attention.>>
