Actor Robert Redford is urging world leaders to take action on climate change before it’s too late.
The star, 70, joined actors Leonardo Dicaprio and Sean Penn at a United Nations conference in Paris, France over the weekend and talked about the importance of reducing fossil fuel emissions.
“It’s very important that this is happening in Paris,” he said.
“We’ve been talking, talking, talking… It’s been so many years, but now it seems like we’re on the verge of something real happening.”
Redford has been a National Resources Defense Council Trustee since 1975, but he explains he wanted to attend the conference because he feels a sense of urgency over the issue.
“This has to be the time because we’re running out of time. It’s been so many years but there’s no more time. (But) I believe this conference could produce action and an agreement that works.”
