Monday at the United Nations in New York City, actor and activist Robert Redford said the U.N. climate conference in Paris in December is the world’s “last chance” to save the planet from climate change.
Reford said, “This December, the world must unite behind a common goal. Because look, this is it. This is our only planet, our only life source. This may be our last chance.”
He told the Untied Nations, “Your mission is as simple as it is daunting: save the world before it’s too late.”
“Everywhere we look, moderate weather seems to be going extinct,” Redford added, “The time for half measures and climate denial is over. Unless we move quickly away from fossil fuels, we’re going to destroy the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the health of our children, grandchildren and future generations.”
