Did you hear that the Department of the Interior has earmarked $900 million for a public service campaign to re-brand environmentalism? Well, maybe not, but where the federal government falls short, local wildmen Lindland and Griffith are picking up the slack and introducing Eco Knievel, the "green stuntman" who may soon become as famous as Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl. With visions of injecting oceans of testosterone into the enviro-movement, a panel of experts will present Ecomachismo, a bold initiative to replace the hemp hippie poster child for the Earth with burly Xgames champions. Will making sustainability macho get us closer to our green goals? Come find out for yourself.
