    James Cameron's declaration of war on climate change has earned jeers from conservative observers. And he couldn't care less.

    Saving the planet has never been such a thankless task. It began with the demonization of Al Gore, continued with the railroading of Van Jones, and now it’s trickled down to James Cameron, whose eco-minded Avatar is drawing the Right’s wrath.
