In an interview with The 19th, talking about Jane Fonda Climate PAC
I’m disappointed, frankly, that President Biden has opened public lands for oil and gas development. This flies in the face of his earlier proclamations that indicated he understood that the climate crisis is a true existential one for human beings and the planet. What I’d like to see, and what most climate activists would like to see, is President Biden declaring a climate emergency, which would free up all kinds of financial and political resources for him to bring to bear on this crisis. Another extremely important thing that needs to happen is an ending to taxpayers’ subsidies of the fossil fuel industry. Currently we give them $20 billion every year. This is unconscionable and must be stopped. One of the provisions in the Build Back Better bill was an ending to these subsidies, but that was removed from the bill because of pressure from a group of moderate Democrats in Texas led by Rep. Henry Cuellar.

I am sickened and deeply disappointed that President Biden has given the go-ahead to Enbridge Line 3 in Minnesota. This belies his promises on the campaign trail to follow science and stop new fossil fuel development and cut our carbon emissions in half by 2030. All of us need to make our voices heard now and demand the President keep his promises. We want a livable future. #stopline3
In an interview with CNN, talking about Biden's climate change actions
He’s done a lot of very good things. But not enough. Not bold enough. And not fast enough. We’re up against time.
In an interview with Oceana, talking about her book on climate action
Great question. Well, it’s getting harder to not notice the effects of climate change: the catastrophic fires in the West, rising seas, tens of millions of climate refugees, more frequent and severe hurricanes, prolonged drought, flooding, hotter summer weather. There are those who, despite all this, refuse to believe what scientists are saying. I’m not sure we should waste our time with them. It’s like the people who still say COVID is a political hoax. But for the others – get them to listen to or read what climate science is saying. The scientists are unanimous in saying it’s very dire and time is running out. If we miss the nine-year mark (2030), at which time they say we must have cut our carbon emissions in half, it will be pretty much out of our hands, although every half degree of warming we can prevent will save millions of lives and species.

@JoeBiden is making fantastic progress on climate, but simply reversing Trump’s damage isn’t enough. Visit http://whichside.org to learn more and to share this powerful portrait of Biden by my friends @OBEYGIANT and @GreenpeaceUSA

I went to the post office with Tulea several days ago to mail my ballot. And yesterday, having tracked it, I was told it had arrived and been counted! We have to make sure that Biden/Harris are elected and that, given some time and respite from the hate mongering and divisiveness the welcome mat will be pulled back from the militias and the selfishness and irresponsibility of the anti-maskers will be better understood.

I just think COVID is God’s gift to the left. That’s a terrible thing to say. I think it was a very difficult thing to send down to us, but it has ripped the Band-Aid off who he [Trump] is and what he stands for and what is being done to average people and working people in this country.

In an interview with The Howard Stern Show, talking about Jon Voight’s political views
I don’t know what happened to Jon. You know, we were pretty close. He was my best friend among Hollywood people. We won Academy Awards together for ‘Coming Home’. [...] He changed into an extreme right-winger, he was a birther, he is a birther I guess. I didn’t know how to connect to him anymore. I don’t get it, I don’t know why. [...] I couldn’t [be friends with someone like that], anybody that was a part of the birther movement, I’m sorry I couldn’t.
