“We are all, rich or poor, mighty or powerless, we all suffer the consequences of climate change and the destruction of the ecosystem,” Ford said. “And we are faced with what is quickly becoming the greatest moral crisis of our time. Those who are the least responsible to bear the biggest cost.”

The actor called for everyone to “shut off [their] phones, roll up [their] sleeves and kick this monster’s a–.”

The “Star Wars” alum has been outspoken about the importance of recognizing climate change. In November, he struck the President’s Trump card of the administration in a speech during the acceptance of an award from Conservation International.

“We are facing an unprecedented time in this country. The biggest threat is not climate change, no pollution, no flood or fire. It is that we have people at the head of important n— who do not believe in the science,” he said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Last year, Trump announced that the U.S. withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement. Almost 200 countries, including the united states, under former President Barack Obama, agreed in 2015 to voluntarily reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases in an effort to combat climate change.
