It has been a busy 24 hours for William Shatner. Firstly, it seems Bill and Conan have moved on from the ‘salute incident‘ as The Shat appeared on The Tonight Show to do a comedy bit last night. We have video of that below. In other William Shatner news, today he got involved in a Greenpeace event protesting toxic chemicals being used by HP, you can listen to his message to HP employees below too.
Shatner reads Palin poetry
During Conan’s monolog he talked about Sarah Palin’s farewell speech as she resigned her office as Governor of Alaska, and Conan decided to bring Bill out to recite part of the speech as a spoken word performance. Here is the clip from NBC.com (sorry USA only).
Shatner helps Greenpeace send a message to HP
But Shatner isn’t done sending messages this week. He has been recruited by Greenpeace in their guerrilla campaign to get HP to stop using toxic materials in their products. Today employees of HP were greeted by a phone message from Shatner calling on HP to stop using toxic chemicals, as other electronic companies like Apple have done.

In addition, Greenpeace activists painted ‘Hazardous Products’ on the roof of the HP headquarters in Palo Alto this morning (using non-toxic finger paint). More info at The Register and WIRED.
