Actress Patricia Arquette, an outspoken critic of President Trump, says climate change is the one issue really keeping her up at night.
It's "something we can't turn back the clock on," Arquette said Monday night in Washington, D.C. Dismantling the [Environmental Protection Agency] and rolling back all these climate regulations were going to pay a huge price for that."
Im concerned with legislation, but I at least hope we can change that again. But as far as climate change, theres no negotiating the devastating effects of disregard and destruction at that level, she added.
Arquette was one of four women honored Monday night at Salesforce's first Equality Awards.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) made a surprise appearance and introduced the three other honorees, tennis legend Billie Jean King, equal rights activist Lilly Ledbetter and singer Mary J. Blige.
Arquette praised Pelosi as a champion for equality at the ceremony and spoke out against the gender pay gap.
The actress told The Hill she believes people need to get out and vote in 2018. And she encouraged those disillusioned by the Trump administration's policies to call their representatives and volunteer for organizations like Swing Left, which aims to help progressive candidates in swing districts.
It is actually very effective when people call their congresspeople, she said. And obviously every vote counts, not just our votes but the House and Senate votes. So we have got to get more people elected that will question these policies.
She said she ultimately remains hopeful.
When people take action and join together, said Arquette, We can accomplish a lot.
Idiocy is free, will you charge us for that poltroon?
Thank you Dr Arquette, your input is invaluable. Now go make some lousy movie.
I don’t see dismantling the EPA costing me anything, in fact I suspect I will save on gas and electricity as a result.
I sleep so well knowing that the booger man of Climate Change is keeping the faint hearts up all night!
I do hope that they, being the greenies, do pay a big price for Trump’s environmental policies.
Ok Patty, when you give up your millionaire lifestyle we’ll... Well, we’ll still be laughing at you.
The continuing idiocy coming from the left is a gift that keeps on giving.
I have no idea who this little young’n chippie gal is.
I am so sick of these “know-it-all” actors and actresses. Just mouth pieces living in a make believe world.
Why would anyone give a flying frak about what actress Patricia Arquette thinks?
Thank you, Professor Arquette for that educated opinion.
“Blah blah blah” said the washed up actress. “Nonspecific motivational feelgood nonsense”, she added.
Once upon a time she was a young Hollywood bimbo. Now she is an old, fat washed up bimbo.
Silence is golden. Duct tape is silver.
Patricia Arquette, the oh so knowledgeable scientist hath spoken with all the wisdom of another Rachel Carson.
I would love to take her to china with me some time and show her what pollution really looks like. her head would probably explode so would only need to buy a one way ticket for her.
Menapause has not been kind to her.
‘The actress’ and deep thinker ... was awarded. Hon, it couldn’t be as costly as the global waming policies O set into play.
That’s her? I wouldn’t recognize her from the regulars in a Midwest Wal-Mart. What qualifies an unknown actress to speak on global climate conditions....
