Welcome actress and activist Daryl Hannah is -- Carol thank you for talking with and I -- you I appreciate very much.
You know just recently you've been demonstrating about the pipeline and in was -- less on the issue were arrested at the White House yeah.
And what would happen there.
Well I was joining -- thousands of people who lower.
Putting themselves risking arrest.
Two protest the pipelines.
We we don't like did that the idea that it comes from the Canadian tar sands we don't like the idea that it was gonna go to the Obama I prefer we don't like the idea -- the people's land was being taken by eminent domain.
They don't like the idea that this is really just -- pipeline.
Not to do bring gas the American public but just to bring -- to the the -- -- the golf to be made available for sale on the open my.
The world -- yes exactly and and that somehow the American public has been fooled into thinking that this -- -- will belong to possibly put the fight it is.
And that it will reduce the price of gas here in America which is just that that's just it.
I -- is gonna create all these jobs which are really just temporary jobs which not as many as TransCanada said.
They just did visit I mean that's that's the studies that have been done by you know colleges and others -- -- respect individual physical only be a few thousand temporary jobs and that's it.
-- so it's.
It's just you know why should we how about a private company that already has.
Billions of dollars in profits and doesn't have any.
Environmental responsibility or responsibility and didn't allow them to take the -- from our private citizens.
You know take -- for their own private profit.
Why do it's amazing how these lies keep getting out there and they keep getting repeated I know President Bush has.
I think -- repeat things about apparently what people believe.
It's unbelievable the president is now however fast track he wants a fast track their permit process is showing you now disappointed what President Obama has hit it.
Southern route along you know I I I I -- the from the beginning of always known that.
-- President Obama was was you know friendly to this pipeline which is also funny because the Republicans have really taken -- Yeah put a perspective that he's been fighting and I think that -- in the beginning he's wanted to pass that.
I think he didn't want to do it -- under the glare you know his voters who are against this so he was trying to do it surreptitiously -- it's all this attention it would have been drawn to.
-- -- also this idea that he somehow is against drilling he's expanded the replied I don't.
Proponents again again there's some misinformation -- -- -- recurrence.
It's true but of that but he you don't -- -- -- his.
And deputy chief and his chief of but -- of his campaign.
Was the chief lobbyist church retreat into Canada.
So it's not like he has.
Perspective to visit to this project you know and and and Hillary Clinton who is obviously secretary -- her deputy chief of staff what is it.
Who -- their former.
Who I mean -- their chief Robbie.
Right so I don't know what they as someone who I'm I'm guessing supports Obama overall.
Maybe I'm wrong about that but.
That they -- about them I'm just I'm you know here's the thing I am.
I'm an issues person I'd I'd never really put my faith in politicians because I believe there are beholden to you know the people who given the money -- in an office and that's.
Unfortunately especially since this Citizens United vs SEC that's usually corporations.
So you were really its corporate -- stayed out of -- but -- So yeah individuals.
Who are politicians so as an activist -- would you not support the president's reelection -- you just -- involved in the upcoming election.
I mean I I I do vote I will vote but I don't make that you know I don't I say I -- -- you know obviously.
Figure out who that the last -- who's going to be don't vote.
So lesser of two evils you know.
Similarly to the able to listeners but.
Yeah but I -- -- really I try to -- you know focus -- And educating myself and getting informed about the issues and and trying to encourage us to make wise decisions London and not -- that are going to be damaging.
You know to our health and the health of that that the potential survival.
Of you know -- species.
You you live off solar power entirely her and her.
Yes and it was -- -- is -- expensive to do they people might think you know you're rich famous Hollywood actors you -- all that stuff in the average person do that.
You know it depends how big your having my house is not a big house so much it wasn't expensive of course -- also -- -- twenty years ago -- so it's paid for itself many many times over by now.
And probably won't let more than you paid for it now and enhance the value of it.
-- -- Yeah I guess I mean this thing is you deal with -- solar is one of those things that when you're buying a house if you look if you include your energy costs.
In the abstract concept -- whatever you think you can afford then it makes a lot of sense you know you can just say look I'm gonna buy a house that's maybe.
Not as expensive as emphatically because and that that includes.
This is my self sufficiency in this.
In this number you know this bottom line and then and then also knowing that within five years it'll it'll pay -- tough talk.
And there also are you have a car that's that runs on biodiesel.
When he hasn't done biodiesel announced to have -- that runs on alcohol problems stay outside the -- them and -- bills that.
That any fuel injected -- can run on clean burning alcohol is it was a very very.
That's simple five minute modifications.
And -- -- can run errands and biodiesel.
You've got to -- about -- and as I am that every president we gets gives lip service to getting sustainable energy moving toward sustainable energy.
And it never seems to happen.
Horrible you know they'd like I said there's you've been the most do wealthiest.
Companies in the history of money -- the oil companies.
And now they have undue influence on politicians because.
They've -- all the money -- -- you know to donate to campaigns to get their lobbyists that -- to do you know to get there will.
Served so they have they have no incentive to.
To change the status quo.
They have no incentives to its units have any -- to paradigm shift because even in this economy they're making record profits.
And so it was so you know it's it's really up to us to get informed and know that we have other options available to us.
And everything is this centralized systems that we have that centralized energy systems centralized states system these kinds of systems like our.
You know while they might have been a good idea back in the thirties forties and fifties it's once we've tried and we realized they don't make sense regional.
Productions -- regional distribution of food.
Water and energy makes a lot more sense.
What did you enter a signal is in the first -- current parent.
Was there any event -- life there was anything in particular issue that got you hooked that got you so -- you know.
Energy the great entry into the conversation me when -- -- that.
Then that -- cars without you know without changing anything about the kind did not need to run and petroleum.
And they could run and wasted I was sold in like that's amazing and clean burning and non toxic.
Had really it was so exciting you know news to me -- of course.
And so many people since then hasn't started doing this the other biofuels process completely constructively -- and Enron.
But that doesn't mean -- have to be definitely you know.
Thank you got a great website DH -- life dot com bowl which is really very well then it's got all kinds of information and and great videos and.
You know basically focusing on solutions you know.
-- -- -- and and thinking what do you got coming up vacuous.
I just finished a movie about two team because.
Does have a terrible with the women ask about -- -- about these old drugs like me.
It challenge the current state champs and that's -- it's like you -- Can an account -- the -- again through -- snapper is you know I think you have.
