Information on Celebrities that are climate change advocates

“Taking bold climate action now has the potential to unleash the full power of business and lift millions of people out of poverty at the same time. We’re the first generation to recognize this and the last generation that will have this opportunity.” — Richard Branson, Virgin Group founder
“We are living in revolutionary times. The good news is we have everything we need to leave fossil fuels in the ground. All we need is you to join the rest of the world to bring about a cleaner, more stable and peaceful future.” — Mark Ruffalo, Actor

“Climate change is critical to me because I’m a parent; I feel a sense of responsibility to the future. I’m not going to be around to see its worst effects, which are going to be hitting in the 2030s, 40s, 50s, but my kids will. Everybody is always talking about droughts and sea level rise, but when human civilization — with more crowding and greater resource depletion — is under that much stress, it translates into wars and huge displaced populations. The Syrian refugee crisis is just a first taste of what it’s going to be like. I don’t want my kids growing up in that kind of world.” — James Cameron, film director
“Collaboration, partnership, the ultimate intertwining of skills, shared passions and knowledge, is what concocts the most shatterproof forms of change-making. Let’s unite our impassioned voices to combat climate change. The time is now.” — Ian Somerhalder, Actor and UNEP goodwill ambassador
