Donald Trump may think climate change is a hoax perpetrated by China, but Thor, who zips in and out of the stratosphere, has no doubt there is a real environmental crisis that needs to be addressed effectively, forcefully and urgently.

Chris Hemsworth, carrying his daughter, joined one of scores of protest actions held in response to the call of Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg, who dared world leaders at the United Nations assembly to act on the global emergency.


The Australian actor, who presumably joined a rally in his home country, captioned his Instagram post, “What do we want? Climate Action!”


Aasgard’s god of thunder and  member of the Avengers said, “The kids have spoken! Well done to all the young climate strikers for taking part in #climatestrike drawing immediate attention to the climate change emergency!!”

He added, “The climate crisis is upon us. Children understand the basic science that if we continue to pollute the planet climate change will worsen and they won’t have a future. None of us will. The planet will die and, if you do the math pretty, sure that means ….um yep we’ll also be disposed of unceremoniously too. So yeah definitely immediate, urgent and necessary wouldn’t you say..? Get moving ‘leaders.’”

Ways to help

Hemsworth mentioned ways people could help slow climate change and global warming: Move away from the burning of fossil fuels, no more new oil, gas, coal projects; move toward 100-percent renewable energy generation and exports by 2030; and fund a just transition and job creation for all fossil fuel workers and communities as the transition occurs.

Another “Avenger,” the Hulk, aka Mark Ruffalo, also actively campaigned for participation in the Sept. 20  #ClimateStrike.

Ruffalo is a board member of @100isNow, a campaign that aims “to make new clean energy more affordable and accessible for all.”


He posted on Instagram:

“As we fight the biggest civil rights issue of our time, we must actively support the frontline youth leaders who are putting their bodies on the line to be heard. Those who continue to tirelessly do the work to ensure the planet they’ve inherited is clean and livable.
