Earth Day drew a crowd of many thousands over three days at Alameda Park.
A highlight of the event was the Environmental Hero Awards ceremony, hosted by Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. Filmmaker James Cameron was on hand to deliver an Environmental Hero Award to his wife. Suzy Amis Cameron had written and published a book called OMD: Change the World by Changing One Meal a Day.
She advocated eliminating meat from one meal each day. She claimed that this has the same greenhouse gas effect over the course of a year as eliminating a round trip drive from coast to coast.
She said that James Cameron’s films were more about a future of gloom and doom than of a better, hopeful future. She said his world view has become more positive since adopting this OMD plan.GO TO STORY
