Arnold Schwarzenegger: Public Listens to Actors Over Scientists on Global Warming
Actor turned politician Arnold Schwarzenegger says the public won't listen to what scientists have to say about global warming.
Celebrities, the Terminator star says, are another matter.
Schwarzenegger told a press gathering today that actors must address issues like global warming in order to make an impact on the public at large.
Only actors really will get the ultimate attention,” the former governor said. “Scientists will never get the kind of attention that someone in show business gets.
Schwarzenegger, along with Harrison Ford, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon and director James Cameron, are part of the upcoming Showtime miniseries Years of Living Dangerously which address fears over climate change. The muscle-bound actor once drove gas-guzzling cars like The Hummer, but now urges everyone to use more earth-friendly modes of transportation.
