According to Arnold Schwarzenegger, it's time to terminate climate change.
The former California governor just spoke out against pollution and made the case for a greener economy at the first-ever Summit of Conscience for The Climate in Paris.
Today's "Why Do I Care" summit called on philosophers, spiritual leaders and theologians to discuss why they care about the planet and explore the morality of climate change prevention. It's a precursor to the highly anticipated UN Climate Change Conference, scheduled for December.
“I’ve starred in a lot of science fiction movies but let me tell you something — climate change is not science fiction," Schwarzenegger said. "This is a battle in the real world and it's impacting us right now. This is bigger than any movie; this is the challenge of our time."
A Republican with a proven affinity for Hummers, Schwarzenegger may seem like an unlikely green advocate. But his words prove that the environmental movement transcends politics and requires universal action.
Maybe you're not a fan of Schwarzenegger's politics (or movies), but his latest performance is hard to contend with. Listen to the rest of his remarks here:
