What a well-informed post. Celebs and the environment are a catch 22: on the one hand you have the visibility and awareness they bring any cause, but on the other you have the sense of entitlement and superiorty that excludes them from the real dirty work (riding the bus, walking, etc).

So, as the wise saying goes, we should all keep our side of the street clean. Forget what Bono and Babs might say about the suffering of the world: live decently, live compassionately and don't litter.

Loving this post, and I agree with GCL on the celebrity situation. The reason I'm most annoyed at celebrities on their soapboxes is because, quite simply, they tend to be hypocritical idiots. Why does almost every major donation by a celebrity to a charity feel false, as if the gesture were saying, "I'm doing this for both of us, but mostly for me"? And because donating money is suddenly not good enough for the image, they've taken to adopting all of the underprivileged children in the world.

Too much of celebrity politics is driven by notions of celebrity image. It's frustrating.
