scarlett_boelynI frigin love Oxfam, ya’ll! Ever since Minnie Driver told me about this fantastic organization last year, I’ve kept my eye on the group and all their accomplishments.

Most recently Oxfam recruited nineteen actors, musicians and activists – including stars like Scarlettt Johansson, Annie Lennox, Colin Firth and Kristin Davis — to sign a climate change letter written to world leaders who attended the UN climate negotiations in Poland.

“It is desperately unfair that the poor should again feel the brunt, despite being least responsible,” read the letter. “Wealthy nations, who are in their advantaged position because of heavy industrialization, are the most responsible and able to lead the world in tackling climate change. This is why they must show leadership in Poland and provide solutions that have the interests of the world’s poor at their heart.”

With so many people getting involved, it’s hard to believe that only a few years ago the verdict was still out on climate change. Here’s to hoping that 2009 is full of even more delicious environmental progress!

    I’d like inform you that Scarlett Johansson (actress)actually is a clone from original person,who has nothing with acting career.Clone was created illegally using stolen biomaterial.Original Scarlett Galabekian last name is nice, CHRISTIAN young lady.I’ll tell more,those clones(it’s not only 1)made in GERMANY-world leader manufacturer of humans clones,it’s in Ludwigshafen am Rhein,Rhineland-Palatinate,Mr.Helmut Kohl home town.You can’t even imaging the scale of the cloning activity.But warning,H.Kohl staff strictly controlling their clones spreading around the world,they’re NAZI type disciplined and mind controlled,be careful get close with clones you will be controlled too.Original family didn’t authorize any activity with stolen biomaterials,no matter what form it was created in,it’s all need to be back to original family control in Cedars-Sinai MedicalCenter in LA.Controlling clones is US military operation.Original Scarlett never was engaged,by the way

    I’m sorry, why is Oxfam so “frigin” great? They buy and sell animals (reducing them to commodities) to give to the world’s poor when giving them other foods (staples like beans, rice, etc.) are healthier, would be a more efficient way of feeding the hungry, would feed more starving people and wouldn’t cause the suffering and death of all those animals.
    Frigin sad if you ask me!

    Dan, my husband and I are both vegan, and still huge Oxfam supporters. We think it sucks too that they choose to use animals like that, but they also do a great amount of good in many other ways.

    I still find it strange that every poster on this board just ignores these comments by this guy (on every Scarlet post) where he writes about her being an alien clone or whatever.. Well maybe just better to ignore him? But you gotta admit it’s at least funny. Maybe the readers don’t have sense of humor about SJH?
