I would say John Muir. He founded the most well known environmental organization, The Sierra Club, which fights for better environmental rights for our country. Most of his lifetime was spent on preserving the Western forests.
Other well known environmentalists include Al Gore for his work on global warming, Jane Goodall for her work with gorillas, Rachel Carson for her work on pesticides, Henry David Thoreau for his theories and beliefs about human ecology; others include: David Suzuki, Tim Flannery, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Theodore (Teddy) Roosevelt, Lucy Braun, Jacques Coustaue, Steve Irwin, Chico Mendes, and Aldo Leopold, just to name a few.
I think President Obama is currently the most well-known figure in environmentalism. He has made climate change and environmental issues a priority both at home and abroad. This, together with his worldwide popularity, make his message about climate change a powerful one. He carries the hopes of many environmentalists with him for strong worldwide climate initiatives to be achieved.
