He has pushed reusable water bottles, done many a PSA, and even robbed a casino… now, eco-celeb Matt Damon will be lending his voice to help save the planet, and the human race!

Joining Lester Brown and Matt Damon in the documentary are Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman, former Governor and Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt, and others.
