Climate change was on everyone’s mind at today’s World Government Summit in Dubai. And it seems that Robert De Niro was particularly upset over the sad state of affairs.
During one session, actor Robert De Niro took to the stage to call for bold action. He began by blasting the United States, calling it a place replete with ignorance and science denial. “I flew here last night from a backward country,” he began, “It is a place where science once reigned. It has been replaced by ignorance.”
“In the country I am describing, government ministries have been warned against using terms like ‘science-based’ and ‘evidence-based.’”
