Harrison Ford on Thursday night had an important message for lawmakers and leaders who are denying climate change.
While he was receiving an award, he gave a powerful speech to the environmental group Conversation International In California, Culver city, and he stated the one of the biggest threat to the USA are leaders that don’t want to understand or accept evidence that this kind of human activity is driving rapid climate change.
“We face an unprecedented moment in this country. Today’s greatest threat is not climate change, not pollution, not flood or fire,” Ford said for The Hollywood Reporter.” It’s that we’ve got people in charge of important shit who don’t believe in science.”
Harrison ford, who of course has been a longtime advocate for environmental causes, says that if we don’t do something about this problem soon – “nothing else will matter”.
“If we don’t stop the destruction of nature, nothing else will matter. Jobs won’t matter, our economies won’t matter, our freedoms and ethics won’t matter, our children’s education and potential won’t matter, peace, prosperity. If we end the ability of a healthy natural world to sustain humanity nothing else will matter, simply said.”
So far, even the president of the U.S. Donald Trump has mentioned the doubt on climate change, while calling it just a “hoax” that is coming from the Chinece in order to make U.S. less competitive manufacturing wise. This June he said that that the known 195 Paris climate records seeks to drastically curb carbon commissions and that the U.S. would withdraw.
