Umm, this is NOT what we were expecting from TLC.
Check out the official statement (below)!

Holy geez, we can't wait to hear Swift sing about this one!
Conor Kennedy was arrested this afternoon at the White House!!
Po-Po slapped cuffs on his pretty little wrists and hauled his famous behind off to the slammer!
Conor, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Darryl Hannah, and 44 other activists were arrested for civil disobedience while protesting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline as, apparently, their Sierra Club-esque group feels it will contribute to the current economic crisis!
In a statement, one activist said:
“We really shouldn’t have to be put in handcuffs to stop KXL–our nation’s leading climate scientists have told us it’s dangerous folly, and all the recent Nobel Peace laureates have urged us to set a different kind of example for the world, so the choice should be obvious."
We aren't sure how Conor came to be involved, but we bet his great-uncle John F. Kennedy — a legendary American who once lived in the residence where the protest was staged — would be proud as peach pie to see a descendant risk his reputation for a cause he deemed worthy.
And combating pollutions is so important, too!
Aww! We're almost sad Conor and T-Swizzle are never ever getting back together!
What a beautiful pair of difference-makers they could've become!

If there is one person that is super happy to hear the National Solar Jobs Census report was released, it is this guy!
Al Gore took to his blog and could not hide his excitement for what the new report's numbers are.
Here's what he wrote:
We've all thought about buying those reusable Starbucks travel mugs while standing in line — but they're just so damn expensive!
Well, here's the fix: the company is rolling out a $1 reusable plastic cup at its cafes starting Thursday.
Thank the powers that be that we haven't seen the last of Don Cheadle as Captain Planet!
Not only are we getting one hell of a goofy series of sketches, but we're getting an A-List actor to spend his time doing it. We don't know about you, but that totally makes it extra hilarious for us… and we have TWO new installments, not just one!
In this episode arc, the Captain tries to take out the final Planeteer — will he succeed?
Find out (above) and… AFTER THE JUMP!!!
How fab is this??
That picture (above) is of Damon Wayans Jr. celebrating American Recycles Day… but kicking a field goal through a 21-foot goal post constructed from 125,000 crushed Bud Light cans.
Amazing! We had no idea he could do that!
He did it in the Bud Light Recycling Zone, which is an interactive traveling display that has visited nine cities across the United States this year to encourage and inform NFL fans about the importance of recycling!
We think this is such a great initiative — and we'd love to see more of this kind of work from major companies and celebs alike!

Do you love recycling??
Not as much as will.i.am and The Coca-Cola Company do!
We mean, they showed up to the EKOCYCLE Partner Launch — where were you?? Ha!
The whole thing was green-focused… it featured a build out that included sustainable materials throughout the space to offer an inside visual look at the EKOCYCLE story and process, in addition to exclusive artwork created by famed artist Buff Monster (we didn't make that up).
EKOCYCLE is ready to handle more and more brands, which is fab because they already have a huge load
When it comes to mother Earth, Kristen Bell cares a whole lot.
She's thinking green, conservation on her mind, even while in the bathroom!
That's right! She's teamed up with Neutrogena for a new campaign to help save five million gallons of water!
