TGIF Keen & Green Celeb: Larry David

Last week we featured Seinfeld alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus.  This week we've got Seinfeld co-creator, everyone's favorite curmudgeon, Larry David.  

Most people know that Larry's ex-wife, Laurie David, is an environmental activist and co-produced An Inconvenient Truth, but Larry David is a keen and green celeb in his own right.

If you watch Curb Your Enthusiasm, you know that the fictionalized Larry drives a Prius, even in the early episodes from 2001 when they were not as commonplace as they are now.  In real life, Larry drives a Prius, too.  He even went on the PBS show POV to sing the praises of his hybrid.  

Larry was also on "Earth to America" on TBS in 2005, a comedy special about global warming.  In his hilarious stand-up routine, he explained his transition from "a lifetime of indifference to nature" to a "full-fledged committed activist."

Larry David has also been supportive of the NRDC.  There was also a Curb Global Warming sweepstakes that David took part in.  

I'd say that Larry is a pretty, pretty, pretty good friend to the planet.  Thanks, Larry!
