Julia Roberts: Ambassador for Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves!

Julia Roberts has signed on to be the first Global Ambassador for The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a public-private initiative to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and combat climate change by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.

“Nearly 2 million people around the world – mostly women and children – die each year from an activity that many of us take for granted: cooking for our families,” Julia told UN Dispatch in a statement. “I am proud to stand with Secretary [Hilary] Clinton to work to reduce the senseless and preventable deaths from unsafe cooking conditions in developing countries and I look forward to contributing to the important work of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves.”

I’ve always wanted to see Julia Roberts do a movie with Tom Cruise. They are both incredible actors and it would be amazing to see them bounce off each other in a film.

The Peace corps went into Central America in the 60s 70s and taught the locals how to burn clean stoves so the soot wouldn’t coat the huts.

After the natives took their advice, a disease Chagas spread like wild fire.

Turns out a type of beetle that spreads this disease only breeds in fresh un-sooted thatch

I am just waiting for karma to hit this mean spirited frog face, for the “a low Vera” remark.

@OMG: Me too, OMG, that “a low vera remark”was stupid and mean-spirited. However, it conveyed a certain truth about a VERY low Julia.
