Jewelry Designer / Global Warming Activist Jerry Cope is extremely concerned by the threats posed by Global Warming to the life support systems on our planet. He has been involved in working on ecological issues for over ten years. After sustaining a serious back injury in 2004, he rededicated his life to working on environmental issues. Drawing on his experience in the jewelry industry and jewelry design, in 2006 Jerry began developing eco-friendly sustainable jewelry manufacturing techniques and designed the Stop Global Warming Collection. His passion to actively contribute to the world-wide efforts to stop anthropogenic climate change led to his partnership with Laurie David and StopGlobalWarming.org. Together they launched Cool Planet Jewelry’s StopGlobalWarming Collection to raise both funds and awareness to the most important issue facing humanity today. The company Jerry founded, Cool Planet Jewelry, uses recycled precious metal exclusively in all of their creations and utilizes entirely sustainable manufacturing techniques. In December 2007, Cool Planet Jewelry was awarded Co-op America’s green business certification, good for people and planet.
In addition to his work with StopGlobalWarming, he also is designing for the USC Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies and 350.org. Jerry works full time on issues related to global warming and is an expert on anthropogenic climate change.
His other related work includes an 8-part television series on Chemical Pollution in the Southern Ocean and ice-mass loss in Antarctica; and working to see that federal EPA regulations are strengthened and enforced. Jerry is also frequent contributor to The Huffington Post.
Global Warming Activist Laurie David is devoted to stopping global warming. She founded the Stop Global Warming Virtual March at www.stopglobalwarming.org with Senator John McCain and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. that is engaging religious leaders, sports figures, elected officials from all sides of the aisle, business leaders, and every day Americans to urge the United States to address the ticking time bomb that is global warming.
In addition to the Virtual March, Ms. David has produced several other projects that bring the issue of global warming into mainstream popular culture – including authoring the bestselling book, Stop Global Warming: The Solution is You!, The Down to Earth Guide to Global Warming, co-authored with Cambria Gordon, is aimed at kids of all ages and is the lead fall 2007 title of Scholastic Books. She executive produced the comedy special, Earth to America! for TBS, which aired November 20, 2005 to millions of viewers and featured Tom Hanks, Will Ferrell, Steve Martin and Jack Black among many others. The show garnered rave reviews and sparked hundreds of TV, print and radio stories about global warming. She is a producer of the Academy Award winner An Inconvenient Truth, a documentary film based on former Vice President Al Gore’s thirty years of research on global warming, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and at the Cannes Film Festival, and has been awarded the prestigious Stanley Kramer Award from the Producers Guild of America, the Critics Choice Award for Best Documentary, a rare Humanitas Prize Special Award and a HBO documentary Too Hot Not to Handle on the effects of global warming in the United States, which aired on HBO April 22, 2006 and is now available on DVD. In the spring of 2007 Laurie launched the Stop Global Warming College Tour with Sheryl Crow, where they visited college campuses throughout the South East on a biodiesel tour bus and raised awareness and inspired students to become part of the movement to stop global warming.
Laurie was featured on the The Oprah Winfrey Show talking about global warming solutions and consulted and appeared on the groundbreaking Fox News one hour special The Heat is On, which aired in primetime on Fox, November 13, 2005. Laurie was the first ever guest editor of the May 2006 issue of Elle Magazine, which made history by being the first fashion magazine to devote an entire issue to the environment and print its pages on recycled paper. This was Elle’s highest selling May issue in fourteen years. In the past year, she has been profiled in People, Glamour, Vogue, Rolling Stone, Marie Claire, Self, Elle, Seed Magazine, Wired, House and Garden, Vanity Fair, Outside Magazine and The New York Times and appeared on CNN, Fox News Channel, MSNBC, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNBC, NOW, Nightline Hardball, Joe Scarborough Country and The Martha Stewart Show. Laurie is a regular blogger on the Huffington Post.
In May 2007, Laurie received the Feminist Majority’s Eleanor Roosevelt Award and Audubon Society’s Rachel Carson Award. In October 2006, Ms. David was honored by and featured in Glamour Magazine as one of its “Women of the Year,” for her tireless mission to stop global warming. Earlier that year, she received the prestigious Gracie Allen Award for Individual Achievement by the American Women in Radio & Television and the NRDC’s 2006 Forces for Nature award for her work against global warming. In 2003, Ms. David was honored by Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s Riverkeeper organization. When presenting her with the award, Kennedy referred to Ms. David as his "environmental hero." That same year, Ms. David was honored by Los Angeles' Children's Nature Institute for her commitment to the environmental education of young children.
As a trustee of the Natural Resources Defense Council and a founding member of the Detroit Project, Ms. David has spear-headed numerous public education and action campaigns urging Congress and auto-makers to raise fuel efficiency standards and make higher mileage cars. She has been an outspoken promoter of hybrid vehicles since they were first available in the marketplace. With the Detroit Project she produced several television commercials that helped ignite a national debate about gas guzzling SUVs and how driving these impacts our national security and makes us more dependant on oil. Since they aired, SUV sales have steadily declined as the popularity of hybrid vehicles continues to explode. She has chaired many major Los Angeles fundraising events and raised millions of dollars for the environment. Before working full time on environmental and political issues, Ms. David had a distinguished career in entertainment spanning two coasts. She began her career in New York City as a talent coordinator for the David Letterman show. Four years later she left to start her own management company, representing many of today's top comedians as well as comedy writers. She also produced several comedy specials for HBO, Showtime, MTV, and Fox Television. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Ms. David became vice president of comedy development for a division of Fox Broadcasting and developed sitcoms for Twentieth Century Television.
