Harrison Ford’s Resurfaced Call To Take Action on Climate Change Is a Must-Watch

Having safely restored peace and order to a galaxy far, far away and ensured the return of countless priceless artifacts back to the museums where they belong, Harrison Ford is ready to tackle another major problem: climate change.

He also notes that while some Americans may be feeling the impact of climate change due to crises like the California wildfires or Texas’ mass power outage, it is by and large poorer nations that are facing the far more dire and immediate effects of our rapidly changing global environment.
