Harrison Ford has been my favorite actor since the 1970s. Today that changes. I am simply no longer willing to finance this kind of nonsense, no matter who it comes from. Breitbart reports on recent comments from Harrison Ford regarding The Great Global Warming Hoax.
Actor Harrison Ford used a publicity appearance in Mexico City, tied to a new Disney movie, to praise Greta Thunberg and trash the United States, saying that America has lost its “moral leadership” in the world.
Ford was in Mexico City this week to promote his latest movie, The Call of the Wild, based on the classic novel by Jack London. While speaking with reporters, the actor addressed environmental issues while also slamming American leadership under President Donald Trump.
“Our position in the world is tenuous because of our lack of moral leadership, basically,” he told reporters.
Ford went on to talk about young environmental activists, including Thunberg, the 17-year-old climate activist from Sweden who has become a darling among the elite in Hollywood.
“I certainly applaud Greta… her activism, her role in representing the interests of young people, and I admire her courage, her fortitude, and also admire her capacity to express herself,” he said.
“Science is being ridiculed by people in ideological campgrounds. They are refusing the wisdom, the discipline of science, in favor of a political point of view. And that has to stop. And I believe young people throughout the world know that it has to stop and are capable and willing to make the sacrifices to make that happen. ”
He added: “I applaud Greta’s part in the leadership of young people and I consider the threat to the natural world as the single biggest threat to humanity.”
In September, the Raiders of the Lost Ark star appeared at the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York where he gave an impassioned speech that focused primarily on the fires that were consuming large sections of the Amazon rainforest.
During the speech, Harrison Ford praised young climate activists, saying that their generation has been failed when it comes to the environment.
“They are a moral army and the most important thing we can do for them is too get the hell out of their way,” he said.
Here’s the video:
What Harrison doesn’t understand about genuine science, is that it’s not religion. There is no such thing as “refusing” science, in the same way that one can be an infidel, a heretic, a heathen, an unbeliever in religion. There is no such thing as “belief” in science. Science is based wholly on experimentation, observation, and argumentation. While religion has rigid dogma that must not ever be questioned, genuine science is wholly dependent on skepticism and routine questioning. Particularly the questioning of authority figures, something that has generally been forbidden in religion historically. Unlike religion, science can be and routinely is completely dead wrong.
There’s no question that today’s despots seek to use science, in the same way that the despots of old used religion to impose their will upon the unwilling and the disinterested. But genuine science is not dependent on authority for any of its findings, so these kinds of “activist” attempts at control reveal the efforts to be based on pseudoscience at best.
Because of this, modern-day science is in an extremely bad state, with the discipline having been overrun by idiot political activists who think that they’re going to “save the planet” like some kind of superhero. As such, the content in today’s scholarly journals and studies should be viewed with extreme caution and skepticism. True science is utterly dispassionate and does not swing with the moods of impassioned activists, or their trite political fashion trends.
As far as the teenager Greta is concerned, this demonstrates one of the primary problems with SJWs and their moronic ideology. They’re willing to heed the “wisdom” of someone who has only been on the planet for 17 years, and who hasn’t even completed what passes for an education in the modern era. Imagine taking the advice of a teenager on the budgeting of your home. Or the purchasing of a car. Or retirement options. Only an SJW dimwit would think that the inexperienced, naive, and uneducated would have special insight to offer.
But someone needs to do Greta a favor, and get the following video in front of her eyes since she’s far too young to have remembered any of this. Oh yes, I dare.
