Do you think celebrities are just jumping on the band wagon when it comes to the environment and global warming, etc?

It just seems to me that celebrities didn't really care about the environment years and years ago when we first started recycling, and now that Al Gore has made a movie about it seems like they're only interested when they have an album or a movie being released.

Am I wrong?

  • They usually fly to these things in their private jets with their entire entourage. Most of them also own property that Gore claims will be completely underwater soon. Actions speak so much louder than words.

  • Global warming, or climate change isn't a bandwagon. Its a fact.

    OP here

    Oh I know they do it for the mula. I made a comment about this the other day in class, and someone argued that Taylor Swift donated 50 k. I said, "Yeah, but how many weeks has her album been number one because of it?"

  • Of course they jump on the bandwagon. Anything that might get them a larger fanbase....

    Well duh! That's not the point though. The point is, celebrities didn't give a damn until Al Gore made a movie about it.

  • This is a broad generalization. Some of them, yes. Some of them, no. It depends on the individual.

  • I would say the OP is pretty much dead on right in her assessment of the motivation for celebs to get involved so publicly with the latest safest cause. Fighting for the environment, who could find fault with THAT?? And of course, some of these, the ones on TV, are probably leaned on pretty heavily because their employer (the network) has a vested interest in the issue.
