Harrison Ford Is Ticked Off About Global Warming: ‘The Future of Humanity Is at Stake’

'Star Wars' and 'Indiana Jones' actor rang the alarm bells this week on climate change and Republicans in office

“Star Wars” star Harrison Ford took some not-so-subtle shots at both President Donald Trump and global warming skeptics at a recent Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco, California.

The “Indiana Jones” actor warned that the “future of humanity” is at stake when it comes to climate change.

He took a hit at Trump and other Republicans later when he said, “For God’s sake, stop electing leaders who don’t believe in science.”

He also said, “I’m here, you’re here, because we care … if we can’t protect nature, we can’t protect ourselves.”

Ford added that the “greatest moral crisis of our time” is that “those least responsible will bear the greatest costs” when it comes to “the effects of climate change and ecosystem destruction.”

He concluded, “We are s*** out of time.”

Ford, 76, spoke last year on this topic.

“We face an unprecedented moment in this country. Today’s greatest threat is not climate change, not pollution, not flood or fire,” Ford said last year during his acceptance speech of the Founders’ Award from Conservation International, a group he has been involved with for decades.

“It’s that we’ve got people in charge of important s*** who don’t believe in science.”

In terms of his recent acting gigs, Ford has starred in reboots and sequels of his most classic features.

He reprised his role as Han Solo for 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” a role he had last played in 1983’s “The Return of the Jedi.

He also revisited his role as Rick Deckard in last year’s “Blade Runner 2049,” a role he had previously played in 1982’s science fiction classic “Blade Runner.”

His next role? He’ll be playing Indiana Jones for the fifth time in a sequel set for release in July of 2021.

He last played the role in 2008’s “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.”
