Nature and science must be a top priority when people choose their leaders, implores a new short film released today by Conservation International and voiced by the actor and conservationist Harrison Ford.
"The necessary foundation of our lives is a vital healthy natural world — our source of clean water, food and stable climate,” intones Ford, who is vice chairman of the board of Conservation International. “We’re watching that foundation crumble.”
With the effects of the climate crisis and the destruction of nature intensifying humanity’s greatest challenges, the most important action that an individual can take, he says, is to vote: “Vote to save nature. Vote to save your children’s future. Vote as if your life depends on it.”
