No Impact Man, aka Colin Beaven, appeared for the second time on The Colbert Report last night — updating Stephen on how his year of no impact went, and talking about his new book.

When Colbert asked Beaven what he hoped to achieve by living a no-impact life, he responded, “I hoped to show that there was someway each of us could make a difference. And we went the “full hog” when it came to living environmentally — but the real question is, is there anything all of us can do? And that was the hope, to see if there was something we could all contribute.” Beaven then turned the questions on Stephen, asking if he might join his campaign, called the No Impact Project, which challenges people to live one week with no impact. “No way in hell,” the host responded. “In fact, while I’m sitting here, I may just burn a stack of tires.”

See the entire video below. For those wondering, Beaven’s t-shirt is advertising the 1Sky.org campaign — which seeks to focus the power of millions of concerned Americans on a single goal: bold federal action by 2010 that can stem global warming. More details here.
