This was an interesting article on CNN.  Turns out that, except for petroleum manufacturing, Hollywood caused more pollution than any other sector in and around Los Angeles.  Some other cool information was that some films try to offset their damage.  The second two "Matrix" movies recycled 97.5% of the set materials, while "The Day After Tomorrow" spent $200,000 planting trees.

Now, if some high-paid actors would just give up 10% of their normal fee, rather than simply offering their face as a poster child for a campaign to convince everyone else to donate.

Strange.

I just finished reading this on CNN myself about 20 seconds ago, and saw there was a post about it already.

Sometimes the Hollywood sign can hardly be seen due to smog. Pictures can come out even worst.



Still a fun place to visit.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
