You'd be forgiven for thinking that LA, with its carbon emissions and dense fog, couldn't give two hoots about the environment, climate change or global warming. You'd also be forgiven for believing Hollywood studio executives are more concerned with

as to "An Inconvenient Truth" (I agree 100.0% with:)
" I agree that [Al Gore's] movie can form a fine introduction for people who haven't thought about it at all. I don't have a problem with the movie at that level. I do have a problem if it's presented as anything than the barest, briefest, tiniest introduction. If it presents itself as having solutions, I see a big problem. For one thing, if everybody in the US did everything that A.G. suggested in that movie, then that would reduce emission by about 21%, and the consensus these days is that for further desaster to be averted emissions need to be reduced by 80%. And he doesn't even talk about reducing GDP; and with the economy continuing to grow, that 21% would disappear almost immediately. Another thing that A.G. doesn't talk about is corporate power. It's all about what induvidual people can do. ... It doesn't talk about the fact that the US military uses 50% of the oil consumed by US, and those are really important things for him to somehow 'forget'. " -- Derrick Jensen in "It's the End of The World As We Know it Episode 10"

On some things, Hollywood acts with a conscience, but on others, it has No sense of morality whatsoever. For instance, Hollywood propaganda has beat the drums of war in every conflict since its inception.

Not the greatest movies, because they know the public at large don't want to be informed'they want to be entertained.
This is why Hollywood won't spend money on a documentary on Sean Penn's work in Haiti. Liberal Hollywood is just that. They talk the talk, but there is nothing behind it. In addition, nothing has been filmed about George Clooney's work, or Bette Midler's 15 year battle to clean up the highways and parks in NY.

I loved Wall-E! I felt it was not only high-quality fiction in a general sense, and visually stunning, but very refreshing from Hollywood.
