The life of Harrison Ford

As an actor, he's saved a galaxy far, far away... In real life, he's fighting to save our planet. This is the life of Harrison Ford.

Who is Harrison Ford

*Humble beginnings

Harrison Ford was born in 1942 in Chicago. His mother was a radio actress and his father, an actor turned advertising executive. After leaving college, he signed an acting contract for 150 dollars a week with Columbia Pictures. Not finding much success in his early work, Ford changed career paths by becoming a carpenter for Hollywood celebrities. During these jobs, he caught the eye of casting director Fred Roos and ended up getting his first big role in American Graffiti (1973). The director of* American Graffiti, George Lucas, ended up remembering Ford when casting the first Star Wars* film (1977) and gave him the role of Han Solo. Shortly after, he became Indiana Jones in *Raiders of the Lost Ark* (1981). However, Harrison Ford speaks about more than just his iconic film roles.

“Stop, for God's sake, the denigration of science. 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… Sound science must guide us to ask governments, businesses, communities to act, to change behavior, to invest in our future; we need science. But around the world, elements of leadership, including in my own country, to preserve their stake in the status quo deny or denigrate science. They are on the wrong side of history,” Harrison Ford urges in archived climate summits.

Climate change activist

Currently, Ford uses the buzz from the Star Wars sequel trilogy to create awareness of environmental issues. He has been an ambassador for the NGO Conservation International organization since 1991, a pilot for the Riverkeeper team that monitors pollution in the Hudson River, and has donated over 389 acres of land from his Wyoming ranch to create a natural reservation. He is currently married to Calista Flockhart and has five children.

    Meanwhile threads on Facebook are posted on computers and phones manufactured in China, the largest contributor to global pollution. Why are so many items made in China? Answer...they have zero restrictions on pollution which lowers the production cost considerably. Want to make a real impact on pollution from a personal level, don't by any more products made in China or India. Tomorrow Amazon and Walmart will make more record breaking sales selling cheep imports to us Americans. Ford and his fellow actors produce a larger carbon footprint than the average person. Their homes are larger which use more raw materials, wood and stone being a largest components. Multiple vehicles and usually several homes. Until he and his buds scale down to one small home and a single car his words are nothing more than hot air. Another pampered elite telling the peasant class how it should be done. Spare me the self righteous indignation.
