haha... I don't know man. I'm sure there are positives and negatives on both sides. I look at those people surrounding Cameron and can't help but imagine they're thinking, "Get your fucking cameras and entourage out of here and leave us in peace, pale face."
I can understand that, and you're probably right. Like I said, I have no illusions that he's not trying to make a buck from this
Maybe I'm making it too personal or something. I grew up in a pretty rural area, on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. We had a nice little river flowing through, just north of town. When I was about 8 or so, the council/government decided to dam it, for a water supply. Not only were a bunch of people told that their 'riverfront' houses were being compulsorily acquired (obviously, they were compensated, but they had no choice in the matter), but large portions of the 'dam' area was a habitat for a number of [semi] rare species of birds and animals. Made no difference. It went ahead (despite being unusable for a water supply for years, due to a massive algae problem). Many, many, many areas below the dam were then fucked, both farming areas, and natural forest areas.
All I'm saying is, awareness about that kind of stuff isn't a bad thing, even if he's making $$$ of it. It's the high profile people that are (sadly) able to create funding for causes like this.
