Harrison Ford made a few requests Thursday at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.
The event brings together leaders from around the world to discuss tackling climate change, and while onstage, the actor begged voters to know where candidates stand on the matter before filling out their ballots. "For God's sake, stop electing leaders who don't believe in science," he said. "Or even worse, pretend they don't believe in science. Never forget who you're fighting for."
If humanity can't protect nature, "we can't protect ourselves," Ford continued, and while people 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." Watch part of his speech below. Catherine Garcia
