harry shearer and laurie david
laurie david, for those who don't know her, has been a one-woman campaign against global warming. married to larry david of seinfeld fame, her becoming an environmentalist was a gradual affair. her activism has grown from encouraging her friends in hollywood to buy priuses, to now single-handedly convincing al gore to turn his global warming traveling slide show into a documentary, and then producing the film.
just imagine this sales pitch: Babe, it's a movie about global warming. Starring Al Gore. Doing a slide show. With charts. About "soil evaporation."if she can make that sound exciting to the american public, she's got my vote. once i finish my papers, it's definitely on top of the to-do list.
i love it when celebrities use their powers for good and not for evil...
