Harrison Ford tried to reach out to voters at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.
Giving a speech on Thursday, the actor and star of Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Blade Runner appealed to voters, urging them to know where candidate stand on climate change before casting their ballot.
In his talk Ford pleaded:
For God's sake, stop electing leaders who don't believe in science or even worse, pretend they don't believe in science. Never forget who you're fighting for.
And went on to add:
I beg of you, don't forget nature. Because today the destruction of nature accounts for more global emissions than all the cars and trucks in the world.
If we don't change the path that we're on today, the future of humanity is at stake. While you work to meet the challenge of climate change, I beg of you—don't forget nature. Because today, the destruction of nature accounts for more global emissions than all the cars and trucks in the world.
You can watch part of his speech below.
Shockingly, many people instead of supporting Ford's statements, seemed angry with him.
We're not sure what part of protecting the planet is so offensive, but thankfully far more people understood what Ford was saying.
And even Luke Skywalker chimed in his support.
People loved this so much, there was even this suggestion:
Someone has to fight the current Empire for the sake of the galaxy.
