One scene in the video shows a man so oblivious of the drought that he’s canoeing—in an asphalt parking lot. (He’s obviously suffering from a bad case of CCDC.) “I’m going to wait until more horrible s–t happens to our planet,” says the man, portrayed by the actor Ed Begley Jr., a longtime environmental activist whose LEED-certified home is powered by solar energy.
“And I’m a senator!” he says. “So fortunately I get to make those decisions. I’m not a scientist. Who listens to those nerds anyway?”
