Mark Ruffalo Hulk-smashes fracking — so give him a fruit basket!
We’re on a quest to give your favorite celeb a fruit basket for supporting green causes. Here’s why you should vote for Mark Ruffalo.
Mark Ruffalo started a nonprofit, Water Defense, to fight everything from fracking to mountaintop removal to deep-sea drilling. He’s an outspoken, dashingly grizzled opponent of tar sands. And he’s passionate about renewable energy, cofounding an organization to speed the transition to clean energy and calling gas “a bridge to nowhere.”
Plus, Ruffalo wants any future standalone film about The Hulk to have a theme as green as the character, so the masses start to get the picture about climate. As he told audiences recently at Sundance, “What we have to do as storytellers is to take science and make it relatable.” SWOON.
Quote: “It has yet to be proven that we can frack without destroying our water and air. If it can be done, why aren’t they doing it?”
