  • Thank you, Mr Secretary General, your excellencies, ladies and gentleman, and distinguished guests.

  • I’m honored to be here today, I stand before you not as an expert but as a concerned citizen,

  • one of the 400,000 people who marched in the streets of New York on Sunday, and the billions

  • of others around the world who want to solve our climate crisis.

  • As an actor I pretend for a living. I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious

  • problems.

  • I believe humankind has looked at climate change in that same way: as if it were a fiction,

  • happening to someone else’s planet, as if pretending that climate change wasn’t real

  • would somehow make it go away.

  • But I think we know better than that. Every week, were seeing new and undeniable climate

  • events, evidence that accelerated climate change is here now. We know that droughts

  • are intensifying, our oceans are warming and acidifying, with methane plumes rising up

  • from beneath the ocean floor. We are seeing extreme weather events, increased temperatures,

  • and the West Antarctic and Greenland ice-sheets melting at unprecedented rates, decades ahead

  • of scientific projections.

  • None of this is rhetoric, and none of it is hysteria. It is fact. The scientific community

  • knows it, Industry and governments know it, even the United States military knows it.

  • The chief of the US navy’s Pacific command, admiral Samuel Locklear, recently said that

  • climate change is our single greatest security threat.

  • My Friends, this bodyperhaps more than any other gathering in human historynow

  • faces that difficult task. You can make history ... or be vilified by it.

  • To be clear, this is not about just telling people to change their light bulbs or to buy

  • a hybrid car. This disaster has grown BEYOND the choices that individuals make. This is

  • now about our industries, and governments around the world taking decisive, large-scale

  • action.

  • I am not a scientist, but I don’t need to be. Because the world’s scientific community

  • has spoken, and they have given us our prognosis, if we do not act together, we will surely

  • perish.

  • Now is our moment for action.

  • We need to put a price tag on carbon emissions, and eliminate government subsidies for coal,

  • gas, and oil companies. We need to end the free ride that industrial polluters have been

  • given in the name of a free-market economy, they don’t deserve our tax dollars, they

  • deserve our scrutiny. For the economy itself will die if our ecosystems collapse.

  • The good news is that renewable energy is not only achievable but good economic policy.

  • New research shows that by 2050 clean, renewable energy could supply 100% of the world’s

  • energy needs using existing technologies, and it would create millions of jobs.

  • This is not a partisan debate; it is a human one. Clean air and water, and a livable climate

  • are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics.

  • It is our moral obligationif, admittedly, a daunting one.

  • We only get one planet. Humankind must become accountable on a massive scale for the wanton

  • destruction of our collective home. Protecting our future on this planet depends on the conscious

  • evolution of our species.

  • This is the most urgent of times, and the most urgent of messages.

  • Honored delegates, leaders of the world, I pretend for a living. But you do not. The

  • people made their voices heard on Sunday around the world and the momentum will not stop.

  • And now it’s YOUR turn, the time to answer the greatest challenge of our existence on

  • this planet ... is now.

  • I beg you to face it with courage. And honesty. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr Secretary General, your excellencies, ladies and gentleman, and distinguished guests.
