Arnold Schwarzenegger Doesn’t Care If You Agree With Him On Climate Change
Arnold Schwarzenegger is using his muscle to tackle the growing threat of climate change, and he doesn’t “give a damn” whether you agree with him.
In an impassioned letter posted to his Facebook page on Monday, the former California governor told his followers that he doesn’t care if they believe the climate is changing because he’s going to address the issue regardless. He championed ongoing investment in renewable energy and likened the future of fossil fuels to a failing business.
“I, personally, want a plan,” Schwarzenegger wrote. “I don’t want to be the last investor in Blockbuster as Netflix emerged. That’s exactly what is going to happen to fossil fuels.”
More than 100 world leaders have been meeting in Paris since late last month to try to forge some sort of accord to limit emissions and the use of fossil fuels. Although the world as a whole is deeply worried about climate change, Americans are largely unconcerned with the issue.
Schwarzenegger has spent the past week in Paris with current California Gov. Jerry Brown (D), and the two have been speaking about ongoing dysfunction that has kept the U.S. from dealing with climate change. California has been suffering from a massive drought, the likes of which has been made worse by the warming planet.
“To use one of the four-letter words all of you commenters love, I don’t give a damn if you believe in climate change,” he wrote. “I couldn’t care less if you’re concerned about temperatures rising or melting glaciers. It doesn’t matter to me which of us is right about the science.”
