29, 2001 - IMDB reports Brad Pitt is urging President George W. Bush to
adopt new environmental breakthroughs in reaction to September 11. Brad
said, "We keep going back into the history of these extremists, these fundamentalists,
and understanding the Islamic culture, and understanding foreign policy.
We're embracing religion, which is a beautiful thing to see, but the thing
no one is talking about is oil. Why don't we set ourselves free? We have
the technology for electric cars, and we have other power sources. Yes,
it would be expensive to make the switch over, but we could, and we would
have complete autonomy from our need for oil. We would not have to rape
Alaska, and we wouldn't have to be dependent on those guys over there.
In the long term, if we could free ourselves from the dependency of oil,
we'd be alright."
