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!
