Celebs Demand Obama Follow Through on His 'Heal the Planet' Pledge
Some of the biggest names in Hollywood are teaming up with The Sierra Club to make sure President Barack Obama fulfills one of his biggest 2008 campaign promises - to heal the planet.
The group, apparently oblivious to the green energy charades that marked Obama's first term, put its message online to prod their progressive leader to pick up the baton from ex-Current TV owner Al Gore:
“Your legacy as 44th president of the United States rests firmly on your leadership on climate disruption. Only the president has the power to lead an effort on the scale and with the urgency we need to phase out fossil fuels and lead America, and the world, in a clean energy revolution.”
It's all part of a march on Washington slated for Feb. 17 which promise to be the "the largest climate rally in the history of the United States."
Those that signed the letter include several stars whose carbon footprint would make Gore blush as well as others financially able to survive the Obama recovery: Adam Levine, Alec Baldwin, Alicia Silverstone, Bonnie Raitt, Darren Aronofsky, Edward Norton, Edward James Olmos, Elle Macpherson, Evangeline Lilly, Ian Somerhalder, Jack Johnson, Jason Mraz, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Incubus, Linkin Park, Malin Akerman, Michael Franti, Morgan Freeman, My Morning Jacket, Ozomatli, Phillipe Cousteau, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Russell Simmons, Susan Sarandon, Tom Steyer, Woody Harrelson and Yoko Ono.
