Mark Ruffalo, one of our Millennium Award winners from last year, appeared on “The Colbert Report” last night to discuss his environmental activism, the dangers of fracking, and to advocate for clean energy. Colbert pointed out that he was the Hulk in the new “Avengers” movie and Mark replied, “Don’t get me angry.” Go, Mark!

What He Said: Colbert on Fracking

July 13th, 2011

“It’s like giving the Earth an Alka Seltzer, if the Alka Seltzer shattered your internal organs so oil companies could harvest your juices.”–Stephen Colbert from Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report” describing the process of hydofracking during a report on the controversy  of the practice in NY. The video of the five-minute clip is worth watching.

And for more on fracking: We recently honored actor Mark Ruffalo for his efforts to ban hydrofracking at the 15th Annual Global Green Millennium Awards.
