Gee, thanks, BBC: They've provided us a four-minute video so we'll know what a guy who had a pretty face decades ago thinks about climate change

[4-minute video] At the opening of a new environmental studies centre named after him at Pitzer College near Los Angeles, he spoke to the BBC's Rajesh Mirchandani about the politics of climate change.
Robert Redford - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He has described himself as having been a "bad" student, finding inspiration outside the classroom, and being interested in art and sports.[8] He hit tennis balls with Pancho Gonzales at the Los Angeles Tennis Club to warm him up. After high school, he attended the University of Colorado for a year and a half,[8] where he was a member of the Kappa Sigma Fraternity.[13] While there, he worked at the restaurant/bar The Sink; a painting of his likeness is prominent in the bar's murals.[14] After being asked to leave the University of Colorado, he traveled in Europe, living in France, Spain, and Italy.[8] He later studied painting at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn and took classes at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.[8]
