Facebook had its Oscar moment last night, as “The Social Network” brought home three Academy Awards. But with the red carpets rolled away, the mighty social behemoth should consider the implications of “Unfriend Coal,” a Greenpeace campaign designed to make Facebook reconsider the power fueling its data centers. Currently, Facebook uses coal to source its services— the goal of the campaign is to have the company shift to clean energy so that it is completely coal free by 2021.

Unfriend Coal has been chugging along on its own with its YouTube video and Facebook Fan Page. and has recently reached out to Ed Begley, Jr. and his wife Rachelle Carson to urge Facebook to “unfriend” coal energy.  We love this green power-couple, but we hope that Greenpeace also gets celebs with huge Facebook fan bases on board. What if, say, Leonardo DiCaprio told his 1,363,721 fans about the dirty energy that fueled his Fan Page? That’s something we would “Like” for sure!
