Are environmentalists becoming celebrities because of the popularity of being green?

    Although being green is becoming more and more popular, the most famous environmentalists still seem to be those who are actors or celebrities anyway. Americans still seem to value actors, singers, artists, and the notoriously wealthy over environmentalists as popular icons. I’ve read that in China it’s much different; Nobel laureates and environmentalists are considered celebrities there and people actually value their opinions. Many here in America rank global warming as a conspiracy, and the environmental movement as a “green con.” If environmentalists were celebrities, I don’t think this would be the case.

    Some environmentalists have gained some fame because of the sustainability movement. Environmental speakers have spoken on a variety of tv shows and news shows and have been interviewed on the radio. For example Bill McKibbon was on the Colbert Report just a few weeks ago.
