Ben's characer has become very confusing. In one scene we are made to understand
that Ben's supposed concern with the environment is merely a business ploy.
In another scene he seems to be genuinely struggling to be good.
I enjoy his scenes but until I know where he's coming from, I'll withhold
my sympathies from him.
