johnnydeppJohnny Depp has lost his bid to turn a London school teacher’s book about climate change into a movie. Saci Lloyd chose a UK production company to film The Carbon Diaries over Depp’s film-making company, Infinitum Nihil.

The Carbon Diaries 2015 is a futuristic story set in London about one girl’s struggles in a world affected by climate change. The heroine of the story, 16-year-old Laura Brown, documents life in Great Britain after it became the first country to try carbon rationing. The book’s sequel The Carbon Diaries 2017 picks up the story two years later as the government is forced to tighten its grips on carbon rationing. Similar to Harry Potter, Laura Brown has developed a cult-like following among teenagers.

Depp was in negotiations to produce the film but was turned down because Lloyd wanted the film to be set in the UK rather than the US. “Much as I love Johnny Depp and it was a wrench, it was a ‘maybe later, Jonny,’” said Lloyd. “These books are really about London. It’s a heightened reality, but the idea is it’s close to things that could really happen.”

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
