Colin Beavan isn’t like other environmentalists who hypocritically talk the talk while walking all over Gaia by participating in modern civilization. He and his family went an entire year without using toilet paper to prove his devotion to the bizarre cult of eco-moonbattery. If people just cared enough to stop wiping their behinds, the thriving polar bears would be saved from doom.
Beavan’s stunt not only helped save the planet, but was the basis for a book. The trees he allegedly saved by forsaking basic hygiene have met a still more demeaning fate by becoming the pages of No Impact Man.
Beavan has been spewing harmless carbon right and left as he promotes the book. He and his wife Michelle recently appeared on CBS’s Early Show, where Harry Smith gushed:
This is an amazing saga… when the lights were switched back on, Colin and Michelle clearly saw a year that meant so much more than living without toilet paper.
Smith tried to get to the bottom of what the Beavan family used instead of TP. But No Impact Man would only answer, “what we want to talk about here is that we have a big emergency.”
The emergency was that Al Gore had made hundreds of $millions off this farcical “crisis” before Beavan made a dime.
There’s also a movie version. US box office receipts were $15,215.
At least No Impact Man named himself right. Beavan has had no impact — on the environment or anything else.
