Captain Planet And Chevy Chase, Together At Last

The current article you are reading does not reflect the views of the current editors and contributors of the new Ecorazzi

Last Thursday, media mogul, eco-warrior (and future cannibal) Ted Turner held a fundraising event for his Captain Planet Foundation at Producing Director Anthony Pratt’s penthouse atop New York City’s Sherry-Netherland hotel. In attendance were a crowd of deep pockets, Chevy Chase, and his environmentally-focused wife Janie.

According to emagazine, most vegetarians (vegans would have left after five minutes) would have been disappointed in the cuisine being served: tiny grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken satay and mini versions of Mr. Turner’s famed bison burgers. See, Ted is the largest landowner in North America — which also contain the largest herds of bison — something he would like to see a lot more of in the American diet. We’re not sure if Captain Planet know about these plans yet…

But back to the event. From the article,

“Chase and his enthusiastic eco-advocate wife Janie were the celebrity du jours of the evening. They gamely posed for pictures, and Janie discussed the importance of greening the nation’s schools from top to bottom, and educating kids about the process while they’re at it. She mentioned the traveling art show called Cool Globes, which brings attention to global warming solutions by various artist renderings on actual globes. The globes are beautifully detailed and colored, some with striking designs, some with technical wizardry, and the project involves a whole curriculum for classrooms.”

For his part, Chase assume the role of auctioneer and received bids from the audience on signed guitars, photos, and other memorabilia. A dinner with Turner even went for $9K. Hope the winner likes meat.

Check out the rest of the evening over on emagazine.

This pariah has earned her freedom through resistance and a seat atop the pedestal few non-human animals have ever sat. It’s The Hunger Games and she’s our Cow-niss.

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.
