pete_obeActor Pete Postlethwaite, star of the new eco-documentary The Age of Stupid, has threatened to return his OBE (Order of the British Empire) honor should a new coal plant in in Kingsnorth, southern England go ahead. The actor made the comments while attending the premiere for the film — which also happened to be the first ever completely powered by solar energy.

“We tried to stop Tony Blair going to war in Iraq. But this time we’re not having it,” said Postlethwaite. “I can’t be an officer of the realm if Kingsnorth goes ahead.”

The premiere also set the stage for a new campaign titled “Not Stupid” — with the aim of turning everyone who sees the film into a climate activist. Postlethwaite signed a pledge card to the climate change minister Ed Miliband, who was in the audience on Sunday, which said: “If you commission a new dirty coal power station at Kingsnorth – thereby increasing our emissions when we should be massively decreasing them – then you are clearly unfit to represent the people of Britain at the Copenhagen climate change summit.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
