Dance with Harrison Ford, save the planet! Environmental heavy hitters and fence-sitters flock (flap, flap, flap) to Conservation International’s annual New York dinner—turn left at the Indians of the Coastal Plains diorama!—featuring GE poobah Jeffrey Immelt being interviewed by Tom Brokaw and Times columnist Thomas Friedman entertaining the coiffed masses with a “perspective on globalization and the environment.” (Are we having fun yet or what?) NBC multitasker Ann Curry is emcee; honorary co-chairs are two rich guys— Roger Altman and Barry Diller—plus one big dose of Harrison Ford. How do ya like them apples?
