New film about fracking stars Matt Damon, John Krasinski, and maybe you

Ryan Gosling may have saved a woman from a speeding car, but some of our other favorite stars are doing the next best thing: starring in an anti-fracking movie. Gus Van Sant is directing, and the cast includes Matt Damon, John Krasinski, Frances McDormand, probably Hal Holbrook -- and, if you can get to Pittsburgh this weekend, maybe you.

Mark Ruffalo on Colbert Report

Mark Ruffalo went on The Colbert Report to talk about fracking, and Stephen yelled at him -- even though he acknowledged later that it's probably a bad idea to yell at the Hulk.

Ryan Gosling wants you to recycle

Hey girl, are you tired of the Ryan Gosling "hey girl" meme yet? Haha, LIAR. You're not, and knows you're not, and that's why they're using Ryan's handsome mug to get you to recycle.

Critical List: BP spill liability trial delayed; Meryl Streep’s eco-friendly Oscar dress

BP's trial for Deepwater Horizon liability has been pushed back one week as the company considers a $14 billion settlement.

Scientist Peter Gleick is taking a leave of absence from the Pacific Institute after the organization's board of directors expressed concern about the methods he used to obtain internal documents from the Heartland Institute.

Meryl Streep won her gamillionth Oscar last night but also marked a personal fashion best by choosing an eco-friendly dress.

In Hawaii, a new wind project will help keep electricity prices steady as the price of oil rises.

Brad Pitt on why cars are stupid

Brad Pitt explained the premise of his film Moneyball to Jon Stewart by way of analogy to gas-guzzling cars. Most of the interview wasn't about green stuff at all (his Celebrity Cause is building houses in New Orleans, which is sort of related but not totally related), but Comedy Central did get a pretty good meme out of this:

Julianne Moore wants clean air for kids

Did you guys know Julianne Moore wrote a children's book? This is apparently the thing celebrities do when they're over 25 (under 25, they start a perfume line). It's about the heartbreak of being a ginger, and not about environmental stuff at all, but that isn't stopping Moore from plugging it in her video for the Moms Clean Air Force. (It's a little labored -- something about polluters being bullies.)

Kristen Bell loses her mind over a sloth

OK, real talk for a second? This is almost certainly how I would react if a sloth came to my birthday party:

LeBron James bikes to work

I know next to nothing about sports, but I'm told that a) this is LeBron James, b) he is not normally the bikey kind of athlete, and c) he IS the extremely highly paid kind of athlete who probably owns 20 cars and a "this is where the magic happens" room. So it's pretty impressive that a fan caught a photo of him biking to a game.

David Bowie riding the subway

The Thin White Duke turned 65 (I KNOW) yesterday, and Flavorwire has put together a slideshow of him doing normal stuff, just to prove he can. Here he is making use of public transportation, even though he could totally summon a shimmering gargoyle to fly him to wherever he's going. Going car-free: It's cool! David Bowie does it! (Do not click through to the picture of Bowie in a big-ass car.)

Ryan Gosling believes in treating chicks right

It may be time for a Chicken-Loving Ryan Gosling Tumblr -- "Hey girl, I just wanted to know how you like your eggs in the morning, because I like mine organic and cage-free." Perhaps because his name gives him an affinity with all fowl, but more likely because he is a decent and animal-loving person, Gosling has joined some less-impossibly-charming celebrities in calling for McDonald's to stop supporting inhumane egg production practices by purchasing eggs from suppliers that use battery cages. If you want to say you worked with Ryan Gosling on a project, you can also sign a petition at …
