Harrison Ford took the stage Thursday at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco. The seasoned actor requested voters learn where candidates stand on climate change before casting ballots. The summit brings together leaders from around the globe to discuss global climate change.
“For God’s sake, stop electing leaders who don’t believe in science,” Ford said. “Or even worse, pretend they don’t believe in science. Never forget who you’re fighting for.”
An impassioned- and very serious Harrison Ford- tells the crowd here at the Moscone Center— “I’m here, you’re here, because we *care...if we can’t protect nature, we can’t protect ourselves.” #GlobalClimateActionSummit pic.twitter.com/f5iTjP0Yca— Sam Brock (@SamNBCBayArea) September 13, 2018
A passionate Ford addressed the audience, demanding action.
“Rich or poor, powerful or powerless, we will all suffer the effects of climate change and ecosystem destruction,” he said. “And we are facing what is quickly becoming the greatest moral crisis of our time. That those least responsible will bear the greatest costs.”
The actor’s message resonated across the internet, topping communities like Reddit and search queries on Google.
