As of this writing (April 2), Jeremy Clarkson‘s last tweet was March 25. This was before the FINAL VERDICT from BBC was handed down.

Within the past few days, the chastened Top Gear star has apparently agreed to become the latest celebrity get behind saving the planet.

According to the UK’s The Guardian newspaper: “Following what he described as a *dark night of the soul*, Clarkson said he hoped to ‘regain the trust of the British public’ by dedicating his time and financial resources to sustainable energy, road safety and forging mutual understanding and tolerance between people of different cultures and religions.”

The “fracas” last month that ended abruptly when he punched a young producer has brought about introspection and self-examination.  At the end of this tunnel, came a revelation: “.. then I saw this stuff about fossil fuels and it was like finding the G spot on a V8 F-type.”

Incredibly, as part of this transformation, he is promoting a reduction to 20 mph on most British roads, rising to 45 mph on highways. At those speeds, you won’t even be able to crash a Ferrari into a swimming pool!

Jeremy is apparently ready to start the rest of his life… check back with us for updates.

What other celebrities can you think of who have had such transformational moments after caught in the flash of the public’s camera?
