Harrison Ford Demands the UN Take Immediate Action on Climate Change: ‘Our House Is on Fire, and We Only Have One House’

‘We’ve been talking about saving the Amazon for 30 years, and we’re still talking about it’


FORD: "We've been talking about saving the Amazon for 30 years. Almost 30 years ago, Sting held a concert to save the Amazon right here in New York, and we're still talking about it. The world's largest rainforest, the Amazon, is crucial to any climate change solution for its capacity to sequester carbon, for its biodiversity, for its fresh water, for the air we breathe, for our morality. And it is on fire. When a room in your house is on fire, you don't say, 'There is a fire in a room in my house.' You say, 'My house is on fire,' and we only have one house.”
