Oh, roll out the green carpet. A pitiful slate for the Sweeps from NBC has the whole channel going greenwash for a week, adapting its leading shows to green themes for a single episode. Its actually rather symptomatic of the mainstream corporate approach to green issues. You can just imagine the execs sitting around in their air-conditioned offices, deciding that it would be really, really great to get the whole green thing out of the way in a week. Oh what fun they had before they climbed into their limos and headed down to Four Season for lunch.
Here is an outline of the tawdry ideas, lifted from TV Guide magazine:
After Ryan (B.J. Novak) excludes Michael (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell) from a corporate wilderness retreat, Michael heads into the woods for his own survival adventure with nothing but the suit on his back. Back at work, Jim (John Krasinski) tries to revolutionize the office birthday party.
It is official! NBC has gone over the deep end. I guess the next step is for them to change their name to the DNC-BC. This way everyone will know that NBC supports a political party versus the truth.
What is the truth? We do not know why the planet is warming. We do not even know if the planet is warming. The planet Earth has been hotter in the past than it is now. The Earth goes through cycles of heating and cooling. The computer models that are predicting the crisis cannot even predict what the weather will be in 10 years or what the weather was like 10 years ago so why are we relying on them to predict the weather 100 years from now.
Change the channel! Save your brain!
