I was in the shower the other day and had an idea: A “Green” reality show, or Survivor-like competition.
This, I was sure, would be a mighty success.
I’ll allow that I was pretty excited: redemption for the world, riches for me.
And then I searched “Green Reality Show” on Google and yielded two million hits. And fast as a Google search engine, my riches went “Poof!”
The Redemption, though, that world where our innate sense of good gets free rein, seemed hopefully close by. “And I shall spit out to you unceasing blessing!” declared God (Malachi, 3, 11). And I watched in awe, as Google spat out its unceasing list of bettering-the-world entertainment initiatives.
Planet Green, as just one example.
Planet Green is a cable TV channel, dedicated entirely to eco-tainment and education. Programming includes Leonardo Dicaprio’s Greensburg, documenting a Tornado-destroyed town’s mission to sustainable rebirth, Greenovate, on energy-saving home-living, world class chef Emeril Legasse’s organic/local food cooking show, environmental newscasts, and even some sort of eco-competition between rapper Ludacris and rock hero Tommy Lee.
To me, ecological sensitivity’s “Thing to be” status is exhilarating. Popular entertainment can only sell content that excites us, and if sustainability excites us enough to be the meat of an entire TV channel, than all I have to say is go us.
So if you’d like to share in the tidings of joy, I urge you to visit planetgreen.discovery.com/tv/, and see a better world well on its way.
Here’s an intro clip into Planet Green. Enjoy!
