Award-winning actor, singer, philanthropist and environmentalist Barbra Streisand sat down to talk with David Mark of POLITICO about energy policy and her own environmentalism. In the interview she notes that her interest in environmental issues was sparked by the Chernobyl disaster and believes that America’s future should see legislation to “reduce emissions by 25-40 percent below 1990 levels by 2020 and start phasing out dirty coal plants.”

Interestingly, she doesn’t talk at all about the entertainment industry, which is a shame. The good side is that it suggests that all of her incredible work has made it clear that she’s a strong, knowledgeable voice for the environment and not “just a celebrity.”
