Tonight is David Letterman's last show before he retires from his late night duties.
Here are 10 instances where "the tubby kid from the Hoosierville" (what Bill Murray called Letterman last night after jumping out of a cake) had powerful things to say about caring for the planet.
#ThanksDave for being a strong voice on the environment, renewable energy, and on global warming. You make us #IndianaProud.
P.S. Dave's mom, Dorothy Marie Mengering, worked at Second Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis,-a congregation that has been a supporter of Hoosier Interfaith Power & Light).
