How Green Is The Star Wars Trilogy? Is Vader A Greenwasher?
Our friends over at EarthFirst have finally put to rest a nagging question held by science fiction geeks everywhere: Was the Galactic Empire sustainable? Because seriously, if I’m going to support the environment and dress up in my Luke Skywalker suit (not the Tatooine one, the one from the epic final battle in Return of the Jedi) everyday, I want to make sure we’re on the same page.
Breaking down the original Star Wars trilogy (because the newest episodes were lame and don’t count) episode-by-episode, you’ll learn everything from Yoda’s use of eco-friendly holographic conferencing (Just like Al Gore and Prince Charles!) to Uncle Owen’s Energy-Efficient Home and vegetarian lifestyle. Oh yea, and don’t forget about all those solar-powered TIE-fighters.
