It's frustrating for climate activists that some people seem to care more about Hollywood couples than global warming. America's obsession with Hollywood feels a bit like we're endlessly banging on the front door yelling "Fire!" -- only to be told, "Yes, we see the flames on the drapes, but America's Got Talent is on!"
