The actor Javier Bardem today called the president of the United States, Donald Trump, and the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez Almedida, "stupid" during the reading of the manifesto that closed the March for Climate in Madrid.
Bardem intervened before the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg to read the manifesto of the Climate March, in which she wanted to introduce two "very personal" opinions.
It was just after he said in the official speech that "politicians and politicians should live up to this historical moment."RELATED
"Excuse me," he continued, "this is on a very personal level, from that stupid Trump, who abandons global agreements, to, and this is also personal, that stupid Almedida, who wants to reverse Central Madrid and allow the capital to circulate to the polluting vehicles ", in allusion this last one to the idea of the mayor of Madrid to eliminate the zone of low emissions in the historical center of the capital.

Bardem urged political leaders to take urgent measures against the climate crisis: "To the thousands of people here, to the politicians at this summit, that we don't want useless words, but that we need and demand facts now," he said.
"We have only ten years to curb the worst consequences of climate change," according to his opinion.
He mentioned in this regard the August report of the UN scientific community that warned that the temperature of the planet has exceeded a degree above pre-industrial temperatures, which causes desertification and land degradation.

"We demand more developed economies more ambition in their policies and the reduction of emissions to 65 percent by 2030 and not just 40 percent, as Europe committed before the Paris agreement, because that is totally insufficient," he said.
Barden also demanded that the energy transition to a one hundred percent renewable and efficient system and the abandonment of fossil fuels, starting with coal, be accelerated and called for governments to stop subsidizing those energies.
