I saw Woody Harrelson in No Country For Old Men last night — and while I had absolutely no idea what his role in the movie was — I did enjoy the performance; as I do with almost everything he stars in.

His latest round of support for environmental initiatives comes from a video that’s just been released showing him talking briefly about the challenges we face with Global Warming. The campaign is part of a new push by Focus The Nation, a non-profit that seeks to educate and inform on the issue of climate change. On January 31st, the group will launch a national teach-in — intended to engage millions of students, faculty, staff and visitors at a thousand or more educational institutions around the USA in a discussion of Global Warming solutions. Here’s an excerpt from Woody’s short speech:

“Americans get that Global Warming is real, and yet we are paralyzed, somehow buying the lie that we can’t do anything to stop it. Clean energy solutions: wind, solar, geothermal, biodiesel, can end our addiction to fossil fuels, stabilize the climate, create tens of millions of jobs, and lay the foundation for a just and sustainable future.”

Check out the video below:

Thanks for the tip Linton!

    The teach-in is actually January 31st, not February! Our University of Oregon campus is participating in this event.
