Matt Damon on Climate: 'We’re genuinely f*cked'

I know… who cares?

“Actor Matt Damon recently told Playboy magazine that he has little hope that politicians can deal with long-term environmental issues because they are too concerned about the next election cycle, reports… ‘So unless they can find some little thing that zips them up a couple of points in the polls, they’re not interested. There’s a consensus among scientists, though, that we face serious long-term issues. They’re saying that unless we engage with those issues, we’re genuinely f*cked. The way it looks, we’re going to wait until one of those big issues smacks us.'” []

  1. Wall-E, the movie which sparked a debate on TV-Tropes about whether to create a category called “You Fail Environmental Science forever”?

  2. Damon is actively promoted these fallacies — he’s hardly a disinterested actor. But I do take issue with the comment that he is a “good” actor. He’s a two-bit hack.

  3. It is truly sad that anybody cares about the opinion of an actor when it comes to scientific matters.

  4. Matt Damon joins Charles Manson as the most intelligent and principled climate scientists. Followed closely by a jar of expired mayonnaise.

  5. Matt Damon himself may be ‘genuinely f*cked’, but I suspect the condition was self-inflicted and predates any interest he may have had in major societal issues.

  6. A guilt-ridden “how did I end up so rich and famous” person who wants to wash off some of the stink of being rich (while staying rich mind you) by evangelizing on something they know nothing about. A Hollywood tradition, it seems. Damon probably used more resources on his movie than an entire small town uses in a year, but since he is “pure”, it doesn’t count. These people are delusional and scary. Rich and powerful people sure do screw us over and MD is one of them.

  7. Funny how some people end up as self-serving evangelists no matter what they do. Damon’s been watching Wall-E when he should have been watching Elmer Gantry.

  8. The problem here is that, with the ‘facts’ as he understands them, MD has a vast platform of listeners who will simply believe everything he says. Is there a skeptic actor out there who will propose a different theory? Or is the whole film industry just a bunch of lemmings? If so then I guess we are all f*cked.

  9. So he’s going to release a moving on being f*cked funded by f*ckers? Because nothing says credibility like taking OPEC money to make an anti-fracking movie to drive up the price of alternative fuel sources.
