American Renewable Energy (ARE) Day is an annual event held in Aspen “to promote effective solutions to the urgent challenges of global warming through renewable energy.” This year promises a star-studded dais, if, of course, you consider some of the hardest hitters and biggest names in environmentalism to be “stars”. In my galaxy Amory Lovins, Lester B. Brown, David Orr and Chief Arvol Looking Horse are definitely stars around which to orbit, but this year it looks like author, model, actress, and holistic “lifestyle expert” Mariel Hemingway will be the most recognizable celebrity there. The star of Personal Best, Manhattan and In Her Line of Fire has recently released a healthy cookbook, Mariel’s Kitchen. Unfortunately it’s not vegetarian, but Rachael Ray called it “a farm to table, locally grown guide to good simple eating” which doesn’t sound all bad. (Check out our interview with Hemingway on her new book here.)

Media mogul Ted Turner is listed as a “Super Sustainable Sponsor”, occupying what appears to be the top donor spot, and has been involved with ARE Day for several years, although he’s not listed as a 2009 presenter.

The eco-wonks will descend on Colorado on August 20 to discuss this year’s theme, The Problem IS the Solution: From Wall St. to Green St. – Creating the New Energy Economy. For more information, jump here.
