In addition to being a fun, epic science fiction adventure filled with strange science and ten foot tall blue cat people, Avatar did a darn good job reminding you of what a terrible person you are. Seriously. You and every other human being on the face of the planet. You are all greedy, capitalistic pigs who bulldoze rain forests and crush baby California Condors beneath your steel-toed boots, laughing all the way to the bank. A bank filled with wonderful, wonderful unobtainium/oil/baby Panda skin. You also killed and brutalized the Native Americans, you sick, depraved monster.

Avatar was the world's most expensive finger wag (and in in IMAX 3D, that finger was bigger, closer and more shameful than ever) and it looks like the movie will continue its campaign of telling you how much you suck when it hits DVD and Blu-Ray. How so? 20th Century Fox, being the astounding beacon of left wing beliefs that it is, has teamed up with the Earth Day Network in a joint pledge to plant one million new trees before the end of 2010. Says the press release (which you can read in full over at Coming Soon):

"Earth Day Network will spearhead the initiative and collaborate with its international partners to plant one million trees, indigenous to each region in 15 different countries, by the end of 2010. The organization is committed to caring for and nurturing the trees to maturity, as well as considering natural disasters such as fires and landslides during the planting process."
