Actor Jeffrey Tambor, his “Transparent” co-star Gaby Hoffmann and “Game of Thrones” author George R R Martin, among others sported green ribbons at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards in a bid to support US President Barack Obama’s climate change plan.
The ribbons were created to demand climate action and the Natural Resources Defense Council thanked the TV stars for wearing the cause, reported Entertainment Weekly.
“Thanks to @jeffreytambor, @OfficialJLD, Louis C.K., @IamDonCheadle and others for supporting climate action!” the official account of the council tweeted.
