Actor Jackie Chan is the latest recipient of the Albert Gore Jr. Eco-Hypocrisy Award for the following offset of irony…

Jackie Chan may not drive a hybrid (or maybe he does) but he has taken meaningful action on behalf of the environment.

He has also offered his star power to environmental efforts on the mainland. In 2004 Jackie participated in the effort to build a Green Great Wall in China when he planted trees near Beijing’s Great Wall to promote awareness of environmental protection. In recognition for his commitment to the environment in China, he was appointed an Environment and Culture Ambassador by the State Environmental Protection Administration.
