He has pushed reusable water bottles, done many a PSA, and even robbed a casino… now, eco-celeb Matt Damon will be lending his voice to help save the planet, and the human race!

Damon will be narrating the new PBS documentary Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization, the latest installment in the “Journey to Planet Earth” series. The 90-minute doc is based on the book by climate crusader Lester Brown, and discusses the very real impact of climate change, and what we all must do to prevent future catastrophes. Joining Lester Brown and Matt Damon in the documentary are Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman, former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt, and others.

This sort of work is nothing new for Damon, who backs the eco-activist site Water.org, has worked with OneXOne, and was recently given a Critics’ Choice Award for his charitable work.

The documentary looks fascinating, and aims to provide “a glimpse into a new and emerging economy based upon renewable resources as well as strategies to avoid the growing threat of climate change.” Lester Brown seems to have some ambitious but realistic solutions, so let’s hope this plan goes into action.

The film will premiere on PBS on March 30th at 10pm Eastern.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
