Actor and former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger has got his sights set on vanquishing another peril: Climate change.
Speaking at the United Nations conference on climate change in Paris, known as COP21, Schwarzenegger said that the world had to unite to tackle climate change, rather than pointing the finger at the largest polluters, such as China.
Defending China, which is expected to come to an agreement over reducing greenhouse gas emissions at the COP21 conference, Schwarzenegger said that global demand for Chinese products effectively meant that the world had been "sending its pollution" to the country.
"The whole world is (asking) China to produce their products so therefore we're basically sending all the pollution to China and so now they have to deal with it and we all have to work together with them. It's not like finger-pointing (at China) or like 'them versus us,' it's more like 'how can we do this together?'," he said Sunday.
Talks at COP21 are focused on an agreement that could limit global warming to 2 degrees Celsius or lower, with current international policies viewed as insufficient to do so. It is hoped that China and the U.S. in particular can come to an agreement on limiting emissions.
