James Cameron—Hypocrite

Ann and Phelim released a two minute documentary that exposed James Cameron's eco-hypocrisy for donating $1 million to fight California Proposition 23.  It's received significant coverage, including an article in the UK's Independent, which wrote:

Mr Cameron is hardly the only prominent celebrity to oppose the ballot measure. Other high-profile individuals campaigning against it include David Arquette, Benjamin Bratt, and California's Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger – a prime candidate for a similar attack advert, since he drives an SUV and commutes to Sacramento from his home in Los Angeles by private jet.

In the current economic climate, knocking the lifestyles of the rich and famous is likely to strike a chord. And given the brouhaha that greeted revelations about Al Gore's carbon footprint, the makers of "James Cameron – Hypocrite", who in 2009 produced a contentious documentary disputing climate change called Not Evil Just Wrong, may be tapping a rich rhetorical vein.

Um, no.
I paid James Cameron. I pay him ever time he makes a movie. That's because I like his movies I and want him to make more of the movies I like. I don't pay James Cameron for stuff he says. Mostly, I don't care about what he says. I mostly care about what Washington people say. That's because I pay them to say and do the right thing. They usually don't. So if James Cameron buys over 9000 houses with the money I paid him for his movies, I'm fine with that. If his words can do some good - even better. I'm not fine with paying Washington people for saying and doing the right thing and then not hearing or seeing it. Thank you.
