MTV's Real World Deforestation Challenge

9/13/2008 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Contrary to the goals of the MTV's current Green Crusade, the most recent MTV "Real World/Road Rules" challenge -- which premiered last week -- seems to pit competing teams against each other in an effort to wreak the most havoc on Panamanian rainforests.

The devastation left behind once the shoot wrapped was described in a recent article from the Tree Climber's Coalition. They say MTV left the formerly pristine area riddled with trash, unstruck sets, and even discarded scripts for the so-called "reality" series.

Apparently when MTV execs see green, they're not looking at the environment.

Calls to MTV were not immediately returned.

This show is so lame...They put them on an island "survivor" style with almost nothing AND BOOZE...because they know these people are so uninteresting, they must be drunk to make the show slightly watchable

Thanks MTV! You are a CLASSIC example of Hollywood, Liberal Hypocracy & their excessive lifestyles....."Do as I say, not as I do" mentality. They may have more credibility if they lived by their credo.

Just a FEW of their contributions: Hot air (from their big mouths), private jets, movie sets with explosives and fires, idling SUVs, large homes pumping air conditioning & heat, multiple homes and apartments, never wearing an article of clothing more than once.... & now add deforestation to the list. Congrats :-)

Side note: Matt Damon, you should take a break from your silly spy movies. They create an unelievable amount of carbon emissions. How deep is your carbon footprint?.....hmmm?? You're a complete azz and total hypocrite.....

"ROCK THE VOTE" :-)

This is the most ridiculous thing that I have ever witnessed. The producers as well as any other employee that were involved should surely be fired. If MTV has any common sense they whould act fast to save asses'. This is a serious matter and with the concerns over sustainable issues reaching its climax, why the hell... I'll just say MTV= Moron Television.

Back in the 90's we had an Earth Day demonstration at a local school. When it finally ended all they left was their trash. I know because I had to help clean it up.
