Jack Bauer Goes Green?

Interesting nugget today from the Washington Post (full article here) about Fox's Cool Change initiative, and how it will affect season 7 of the show "24" ...

"... the seventh season of "24" will take steps to reduce and offset the carbon emissions from the show's production, with the goal of having the season finale be entirely carbon-neutral.

The show's electricity bills will go toward renewable-energy credits that will bring a share of wind, solar and water power to Los Angeles's grid. A diesel-powered soundstage will be converted to electricity, thus lessening the show's contribution to the local air pollution problem, and the show's five location scouts will be given Priuses to drive. Scripts, schedules and memos -- which used to be hand-delivered by car -- will be sent via e-mail."

LOVES the environment, HATES bad guys and bureaucrats!
