Seven Crazy Things Celebrities Have Said About the Environment

4. George W. Bush on Nuclear Energy

George W Bush, New Delhi, India, Mar. 2, 2006: “Obviously, nu-que-lar power is a, uh, renewable source of energy, and the less demand there is for non-renewable sources of energy, like fossil fuels, the better it off it is for the American people.” (Source: PMIndia)

Well, he got the second part right, but nuclear energy produced from uranium is, uh, not renewable as far as we know. Unless George W. knows something we don't...

5. Former Chrysler Chairman, Lee Iacocca, on Air Pollution

“We've got to pause and ask ourselves--how much clean air do we need?”

Yes, if this is in fact a true quote from the horse's mouth, we give you a moment of silence to realize its full stupidity.

6. Jennifer Aniston on Water Conservation

“I take a three-minute shower. I even--brush my teeth while in the shower.” (Source:

Jen may have been trying to get across the idea of water conservation, but a person could drown themselves if they actually used that much water to brush their teeth. Technically speaking, you should only need a few bursts of water at the end to rinse. We just don't understand the logic behind this masterful plan. And how does she have time to clean anything else?

7. George Carlin's Revision of Song "America the Beautiful"

“Oh, Beautiful for smoggy skies, in-sec-it-cided grain. For strip-mined mountain's majesty above the asphalt plain. America, America, man sheds his waste on thee. And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.” (Source: Plenty Magazine)

It would be funnier if it wasn't so true. You'll be missed George!
