Eco-warrior Ian Somerhalder is at it again! Now that “The Vampire Diaries” is on hiatus, the actor has been devoting his attention to planet-saving projects.

Not only is he doing everything he can to get his animal sanctuary off the ground, but Somerhalder also returned to politics this week.

Last year, he spoke to Congress about species conservation, and now Somerhalder has gone straight to the top — meeting with President Obama.

According to Somerhalder’s Twitter, Thursday was a big day. “Totally surreal morning. Met up with some friends, had coffee with President Obama, now tweeting. The 21st century…Let’s do this.”

He followed that up with, “Just spent my morning w/this man talkn green energy, a better America & being a young American-wow.” Included in the tweet were twitpic photos of him talking to the president (one in color, the other black and white).

Yahoo! reports that a handful of young celebs, including Dianna Agron, Sophia Bush and Anna Kendrick, also met with the president yesterday morning.

If Somerhalder’s tweets are any indication, the meeting went well. His verdict: “Fricking awesome day. Met Obama, edited script I’m writing my w/scribe partner, now getting on plane for Germany. Wow. See you again soon Europe ;)”

    The next time loads of money is invested in “green technology”, perhaps Hollywood and Mr. Obama can use and lose their own money and not ours. While we “greedy” Americans are admonished for keeping our thermostats to a comfortable 73 degrees (gasp….the audacity) people of this ilk jet-set around the world in airplanes, live in huge excess, and then claim to replace their “carbon footprint”. What a joke! Elitists and hypocrites. I applaud the spirit of what some of these actors are trying to accomplish – they simply don’t understand the concept of unintended consequences along with the fact they will support blindly far, far left groups and indeed be used themselves.

We need to shatter and dispel once and for all the insidious myth that it is somehow possible to exploit non-human animals “humanely.”
