Climate change is real, and it’s gonna get worse.
These are the words that introduce the trailer for the new documentary “Years of Living Dangerously” brought to you by film producer James Cameron and actors Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jessica Alba, Matt Damon among others.
This year’s Operation Smile gala brought grins to the faces and tears to the eyes of attendees.
While event host Brooke Burke-Charvet shared touching details about her recent goodwill medical mission, honorees Kate Walsh, Kevin Beggs and Randy Sherman discussed the charity’s impact on the children who have received free surgeries to repair their facial deformities.
Some days ago we reported a new documentary about climate change was in the process at Indonesia, starring Harrison Ford. Ministry of Forestry of Indonesia, Zulkifli Hasan, had a bad time last Monday answering questions about the destruction of forest while he was giving an interview to Ford. He even threatened to deport the actor (isn’t it too much?)
Anyway, it seems Ford got really excited on the topic and didn’t like Hasan ideas or solutions for deforestation in Indonesia. Tough questions, high emotions and even an excited Ford jumping into Hasan’s desk (get off my desk!) left the minister “shocked”, an official said.

Ford and his team are in Indonesia as part of the documentary on climate change entitled Years of Living Dangerously, which is being co-produced by James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie is set for a premiere in April 2014.
Ford, who arrived in Jakarta on Sept. 1 on a chartered jet at Halim Perdanakusuma Airport in East Jakarta, will interview a number of Indonesian environment figures as part of his narration role in the documentary about Indonesian rainforests, which deals with the issues of forest fires, peatland conservation and palm oil plantations.

At Conservation International’s (CI) 16th annual New York City Gala Dinner, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton participated in a lively, substantive conversation with CI Vice Chairman Harrison Ford about international conservation issues, global development and the direct connections between nature, security and economic and human well-being.
“I was there for days,” Ford said of waiting for Clinton at her far-flung hotel. “He had moss growing on his hair,” Clinton joked.

Fortune’s Brainstorm Green three-day conference event got off to an intriguing start last Monday in Laguna Niguel, California. Actor Harrison Ford, as the vice chair of non-profit Conservation International (CI), participated in a special session talk with CI CEO Peter Seligmann and moderated by Fortune managing editor Andy Serwer.
Which was the topic?
The two environmentalists referred to what CI calls the “Direct Connection” between international conservation and America’s economic and national security interests.
From Indiana Jones to Han Solo, Harrison Ford has played his share of heroic roles over the course of his career. Now, the actor is back with another hero’s mission: saving the planet. But this time, it’s not a movie–but real life.
Ford, who sits on the executive board of the nature advocacy group Conservation International, has become an outspoken proponent of conservancy, insisting that he is not just a “a poster boy” for the cause.
