President Trump has frequently been bashed by climate-change fanatics, and leading the crusade this week is storied actor Harrison Ford.
According to Huffington Post editor Lee Moran, Ford issued a fiery directive aimed at the president while speaking at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco on Sept. 13.
“Stop giving power to people who don’t believe in science, or worse than that, pretend they don’t believe in science for their own self-interest!,” he declared. In other words, Trump, the obvious-though-unnamed target of Ford’s denunciation, is supposedly serving his own “self-interest” by eschewing environmental regulations in favor of bringing working-class jobs back to the USA.
“They know who they are. We know who they are,” he added, and “We are s**t out of time.”
Objective journalism also didn’t seem to be in the interest of Huffington Post, as Moran propped up the actor’s claims by writing uncritically that Trump “is pursuing an anti-environmental agenda.”
Ford didn’t stop there, but elevated climate change even further, calling the issue “the greatest moral crisis of our time.” Hopefully Ford’s words touch his own moral compass, given that the actor’s 14,000 square foot, multi-million dollar home (not to mention the myriad of homes owned by Leonardo DiCaprio, another climate change bell-toller) inevitably packs a bigger environmental punch than the average single-family ranch.
Ford might be a first-rate actor on the big screen, but his performance at the Global Climate Action Summit was one-sided and left a bit to be desired.
