Harrison Ford is calling out climate change deniers
Harrison Ford, a longtime climate activist, is getting political, as he urges the American people to vote in this upcoming election, especially for the sake of the planet.
A short film, created by Conversation International, outlined the importance of conservation, and Ford took the opportunity to narrate, explaining the importance of the environment.
"Our world is facing huge challenges," he started. "Storms, floods, droughts, and fires are destroying our homes. A pandemic threatens our lives, is decimating our economies and laying bare the depths of social inequality."
He continued, "The necessary foundation of our lives is a vital healthy natural world — our source of clean water, food, and a stable climate. We’re watching that foundation crumble."
In a statement to Time, Ford announced that voters can have a direct impact on the environment: all they have to do is work their way to the polling station.
"The climate crisis is real — the weight of scientific evidence is overwhelming… but evidence can be ignored, it can be manipulated," he said to the publication.
"Leaders who choose to make climate change a divisive issue do it to protect the entrenched economic interests who profit from behaviour that destroys our planet. It’s selfish. It’s short-sighted. It needs to stop… This s--t is going to kill us," he said.
"We have people in leadership positions who refuse to accept objective science," he says. "They’re robbing us of the ability to collaborate, to compromise, to move forward."
Ford has often been outspoken against the current political administration and has announced where he stands in many regards.
