Harrison Ford slams President Trump and those who ‘denigrate science’
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Harrison Ford offered an emphatic plea on Tuesday for protecting the world’s oceans, calling out President Donald Trump and others who “deny or denigrate science.”
The 76-year-old actor, best known for his roles in “Star Wars” and “Indiana Jones,” stressed the importance of acknowledging the effects of climate change on the world in a speech on the closing day of the World Government Summit in Dubai.
Though never saying Trump’s name, he clearly targeted the American president within the opening moments of his remarks.

There was no immediate reaction overnight from the White House.
