Description

Hollywood is one of the world's most influential places when it comes to the planet's zeitgeist, and the environmental movement has the perfect spokesperson here in Tinseltown: Laurie David, producer and spouse of comedian Larry Davis. She hold eco-salons in her home to educate Holly movers and shakers such as Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hanks on global warming. She has raised millions of dollars for green organizations and founded Stop Global Warming, a nonpolitical group that pressures Washington into taking decisive action. She became an activist in 1999 after meeting Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

As author of "Crimes against Nature," Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is one of the nation's most outspoken environmentalists. Over two decades he's helped safeguard the ecological integrity of the Hudson River as chief prosecuting attorney for RiverKeeper, has fought for commercial fisherman, gone after polluters, and waged war over the safety of the Indian Point nuclear power plant. Following in his family's footsteps, Kennedy is well on his way to a place in the pantheon of America's great public leaders.
