Andrew Breitbart vs. James Cameron

September 2, 2010

I have way too much work to do, so I’m just going to post an article I saw elsewhere that I find absolutely hilarious. In order to not blatantly plagiarize, here’s the article I’m posting by Patrick Gavin.

A proposed debate on the topic of climate change between filmmaker James Cameron and global warming skeptics didn’t take place in Aspen, Colo., in August, but those opposed to Cameron’s outspokenness on the issue aren’t giving up on trying to engage the “Avatar” director.

Andrew Breitbart, the commentator and man behind websites such as BigGovernment.com and BigJournalism.com, has put out a challenge to Cameron —  however tongue in cheek.

“I challenge James Cameron to lead the charge with Big Hollywood to stop eco-unfriendly Hollywood film and television production,” he writes on BigHollywood.com.

“We’ll call our initiative: ‘Lights Off, Camera Off, Action Now!’ We can start with an immediate moratorium on wasteful and redundant sequels. Then we’ll create a government bureaucracy to decide what can and cannot be made, with a heavy entertainment surtax for the producers to incur. Our delicate and depleting ecosystem cannot handle more energy-sucking television and film production, especially the size and scope of the average James Cameron production. And anyone that disagrees with me is swine and an effin’ demagogue.”

(NB: Cameron previously called global warming skeptics “swine.”)

So funny. It’s stuff like this that should bring us all together as a country. If someone released something like this about something like gun control or a liberal thing I’d still laugh at it. So lighten up, enjoy life a bit. Hell, we all need a laugh every once in a while, and if college has taught me anything it’s that college comedians can’t provide the laughs that can be generated by an article such as this.
