The Star Wars as well as Indiana Jones star, according to reports, didn’t actually mention President Donald Trump by name nevertheless made This kind of clear who the target of his politically charged remarks were directed 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.”
“They know who they are. We know who they are.” Ford added.
Ford warned “the future of humanity was at stake,” as well as everyone, whether “rich or poor, powerful or powerless,” would likely “suffer the effects of climate change as well as ecosystem destruction.”

This kind of will be by no means the first occasion on which Ford has made these extravagant, unsubstantiated claims about This kind of 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 through 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 kind of country. Today’s greatest threat will be not climate change, not pollution, not flood or fire,” Ford said during his acceptance speech of the Founders’ Award. “This kind of’s that will 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 as well as effects of human pressure on the environment.”
The idea that will “conservatives are anti-science” has become a common trope among Democrats, greens, as well as leftists generally. nevertheless there will be no evidence to suggest that will conservatives have anything whatsoever against “science.”
A study by Oxford University, titled Does Activism in Social Science Explain Conservatives’ Distrust of Scientists?, suggested that will This kind of’s not science that will conservatives distrust so much as liberal-biased scientists.
Much of the work done within the field of “climate science” will be so nebulous This kind of comes closer to being “social science” than hard science.
So the answer will be probably “Yes.”
