Renowned Hollywood actor Harrison Ford has called out “people who don’t believe in science or, worse than that, pretend they don’t believe in science” and claims that we are “shit out of time” to save the planet from global warming… and if you read into his underlined message – Donald Trump.
Ford did not actually mention President Donald Trump by name, but he made it clear who he was targeting his politically charged remarks at.
Ford assumed his left-leaning audience of eco-campaigning elites at the Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco were probably going to work out his subtle hint, when he urged “For God’s sake, stop electing leaders who don’t believe in science,” Breitbart reported.
“They know who they are. We know who they are.” Ford dramatically added.
According to the Huffington Post:
Ford warned “the future of humanity was at stake,” and everyone, whether “rich or poor, powerful or powerless,” would “suffer the effects of climate change and ecosystem destruction.”
The “greatest moral crisis of our time” was that “those least responsible will bear the greatest costs,” he said, adding, “We are shit out of time.”

This is by no means the first occasion on which Ford has made these extravagant, unsubstantiated claims about this alleged threat to the planet.
Indeed, Harrison Ford used pretty much exactly the same phrases at a speech he gave last year when picking up an environmental award from Conservation International.
According to the Hollywood Reporter:
“We’ve got people in charge of important shit who don’t believe in science,” the actor said Thursday night in Los Angeles.
Harrison Ford got political on Thursday night at 3Labs in Culver City when he was honored by Conservation International, a nonprofit environmental group he has been involved with for 26 years.
“We face an unprecedented moment in this country. Today’s greatest threat is not climate change, not pollution, not flood or fire,” Ford said during his acceptance speech of the Founders’ Award. “It’s that we’ve got people in charge of important shit who don’t believe in science.”
He went on to criticize those politicians who let “political or economic self-interest denigrate or belittle sound scientific understanding of the causes and effects of human pressure on the environment.”
The idea that “conservatives are anti-science” has become a popular trope among Democrats, greens, and leftists generally. But there is no evidence to suggest that conservatives have anything whatsoever against “science.”
A study by Oxford University, titled Does Activism in Social Science Explain Conservatives’ Distrust of Scientists?, suggested that it’s not science that conservatives distrust so much as liberal-biased scientists.
Much of the work done in the field of “climate science” is so nebulous it comes closer to being “social science” than hard science.
So the answer is probably “Yes.”
Harrison Ford gave a great performance at the Global Climate Action Summit, calling on people to believe in the science that warns that “the future of humanity was at stake.”
As Truth Uncensored previously reported:
A stunning new science paper authored by climate change alarmists and published in the science journal Nature Geoscience in 2017, has just broken the back of the climate change hoax. The paper, authored by Myles R. Allen, Richard J. Millar and others, reveals that global warming climate models are flat wrong, having been deceptively biased toward “worst case” warming predictions that now turn out to be paranoid scare mongering.
The paper, entitled, “Emission budgets and pathways consistent with limiting warming to 1.5 °C,” concludes that the global warming long feared and hyped by everyone from Al Gore to CNN talking heads was based on faulty software models that don’t stand up to actual measured temperatures in the real world. In technical jargon, the paper explains, “We show that limiting cumulative post-2015 CO2 emissions to about 200 GtC would limit post-2015 warming to less than 0.6 °C in 66% of Earth system model members.”
In effect, the current global warming software models used by the IPCC and cited by the media wildly over-estimate the warming effects of CO2 emissions. How much do they over-estimate warming? By about 50%.
Where the software models predicted a 1.3 C rise in average global temperatures, only a rise of about 0.9 C has actually been recorded (and many data points in that average have, of course, been fabricated by climate change scientists to push a political narrative). In other words, carbon dioxide emissions don’t produce the warming effects that have been blindly claimed by climate change alarmists.
Climate change software models were deliberately tweaked to paint an exaggerated doomsday picture in order to scare the world into compliance panic
“Climate change poses less of an immediate threat to the planet than previously thought because scientists got their modelling wrong,” reports the UK Telegraph. “New research by British scientists reveals the world is being polluted and warming up less quickly than 10-year-old forecasts predicted, giving countries more time to get a grip on their carbon output.”
In other words, the climate change threat has been wildly overstated. The fear mongering of Al Gore and the government-funded science community can truly only be described as a “junk science hoax.”
Climate alarmists suddenly find themselves admitting they were wrong all along!
“The paper … concedes that it is now almost impossible that the doomsday predictions made in the last IPCC Assessment Report of 1.5 degrees C warming above pre-industrial levels by 2022 will come true,” writes James Delingpole. He goes on to say:
One researcher – from the alarmist side of the argument, not the skeptical one – has described the paper’s conclusion as “breathtaking” in its implications.
He’s right. The scientists who’ve written this paper aren’t climate skeptics. They’re longstanding warmists, implacable foes of climate skeptics, and they’re also actually the people responsible for producing the IPCC’s carbon budget.
In other words, this represents the most massive climbdown from the alarmist camp.
Are we about to see climate change alarmists owning up to the fact that real-world data show their software models to be rooted in junk science?
The unraveling has begun, but there is so much political capital already invested in the false climate change narrative that it will take years to fully expose the depth of scientific fraud and political dishonesty underpinning the global warming hoax.
The Russians didn’t hack the 2016 election, in case you were wondering. But dishonest scientists really did hack the global warming modeling software to deceive the entire world and launch a whole new brand of climate change fascism that has now infected the minds of hundreds of millions of people across the planet. Everything they’ve been told about climate change, it turns, out, was all based on a software hack. (You can read the full article here.)
