Arnold Schwarzenegger supports action against climate change and is about to star in James Cameron’s ground-breaking climate TV series– Years of Living Dangerously. Hypocritically, he is privately lining his pockets from the proceeds of the very deforestation that the show highlights as a major cause of global warming. Arnold, terminate your investments in deforestation and climate change! Pull out of Dimensional Fund Advisors, or have them drop deforestation companies now.
Evidence obtained by Global Witness and Friends of
the Earth reveals that co-producer and star of Years of Living Dangerously Arnold Schwarzenegger is also part-owner
of Dimensional Fund Advisors, a major US
investment firm which holds more than three-quarters of a billion dollars’
worth of shares in a range of logging and palm oil companies. These include one
previously linked to arms trafficking during a brutal civil war in Liberia, and
many others burning and bulldozing
the orangutan-populated forests of Southeast Asia, sometimes illegally.
This is more than embarrassing, it threatens to
undermine the integrity of the most ambitious and accessible story about
climate change ever aired.
Years of Living
on April 13 on Showtime, with Schwarzenegger starring in
episode two a week later. He stars alongside Harrison Ford (fighting
deforestation in Indonesia), Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Jessica Alba and others.
We have to use this opportunity to turn the climate spotlight on Arnold: Arnold,
terminate your investments in deforestation! Pull out of Dimensional, or have
them drop deforestation companies now.
