Harrison Ford: "Science is being denigrated."

"They are refusing science in favor of a political point of view." Harrison Ford issued an indictment of U.S. environmental policy.

A veiled attack against ignorant politicians

During an appearance to promote his latest movie, The Call of the Wild, actor Harrison Ford spoke out against political attacks against science.

“Science is being denigrated. Science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds. Young people it seems to me throughout the world are taking up the role of leadership that they must do. It's the natural way of the world and we older people have been trying to solve the problems of what the weight of human population on the planet has done to the natural world and we have made some progress, we've established some good science but science is being denigrated. Science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds, they are refusing the wisdom, the discipline, science in favor of a political point of view and that has to stop and the young — I believe the young people throughout the world know that it has to stop and are capable and willing to make the sacrifices to make that happen. So, I applaud young people, I applaud Greta's part in the leadership of young people, and I consider the threat of the natural world is the single biggest threat to humanity”, Harrison Ford tells a crowd in Mexico City.

To say that the actor appears displeased with the current state of environmental affairs would be a drastic understatement

For nearly 27 years, Ford has been working for the environmental group Conservation International, which supports scientists from around the world who are working to identify and overcome biodiversity threats. But as Ford makes clear in his recent and impassioned speech, none of that work matters if we deny the reality of climate change and collectively forget nature in our "corporate, state and national climate goals".

    I guess that this means that he'll be scrapping and recycling all of his aircraft and vehicles to make the planet less burdened. I'll not be holding my breath. The same as so many others, just another hypocrite.

    am I wrong for saying that this sounds like a political point of view?

    Come out and say what you mean, instead of beating around the bush, like a good liberal. Know one wants to hear this bull crap. You need to check out, Genesis 2:27 to 28

    The Lord leads, the Lord protects, the Lord provides...….. Young people don't even know who the Lord is. And, if they hear about Him; its usually a lie. Who is the father of lies and murder you ask? lucifer, satan, the devil himself. Get it straight.

    replace the word "science" with fascism. Let the truth be told. He's is an actor being told what to do. very disappointing.

    Extrapolation is not science. Stop the Hollywood rhetoric. It's stupid and embarrassing. Stop selling global taxation precurses based on extrapolated, climate change agenda building. Taxation without representation is theft and exploitation.

    Many scientist now believe the lack of sun spots will cause a long term mini ice age like it did in 1400 AD.

    Doesn’t that statement apply most obviously and accurately to the perpetrators of the gender spectrum hoax?”
