Many more celebrities get involved in social actions, such as, the recent issue of climate change. Among them is also famous movie star Robert Redford, who thinks global warming must be brought to a standstill in order to help preserve nature’s resources.
Robert Redford thinks global warming must be brought to a standstill as many of today’s problems arise from humans’ reckless behavior towards nature. The Academy-Award winner has even met with the members of the United Nations in order to urge them to adopt measures for the preservation of nature.
He began his speech by telling attendees that he did not come in front of them as an actor, but rather as a father and a grandfather, who is first of all, preoccupied to leave a clean Earth to his descendants. Similar to Pope Francis, Robert Redford, too, acknowledged that climate change is affecting the entire population of the Earth. The most influenced regions, however, remain those where people live in poor conditions, was the actor’s conclusion.
The 78-year-old actor persuaded the U.N members to adopt a climate change agreement until their upcoming meeting, which is bound to take place this December in Paris. He has justified his firm stand against pollution by saying that the modern weather will soon disappear if political leaders are not forced to take actions.
Redford, too, is convinced that the faith of the world is in danger, unless the people responsible will adopt the necessary measures. He then, recalled the period of his childhood when Los Angeles, his birthplace, was a clean city with fresh air. Unfortunately, all was changed during the industrialization period when skyscrapers and pollution completely changed the aspect of the city.
The actor is now forced to retreat to Sierra Nevada or the Yosemite Park in order to get just a glimpse of raw nature.
Robert Redford will continue to make pressures on the members of the United Nations in order to convince them that an agreement is absolutely urgent. In his opinion, fossil fuels are the main cause of pollution; therefore, world leaders will first have to consider this aspect.
The Horse Whisperer star concluded his declaration by saying that he plans to be in Paris at the time of the upcoming meeting to closely follow the actions of the UN members.
