Actor Alec Baldwin attended the U.N. Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues on Tuesday where he opened up about his ideas on climate change.

The “It’s Complicated” star spoke to journalists while moderating a panel on “Forest Defenders,” according to Page Six. Baldwin claims his inspiration for planet preservation stems from the 2015 Paris conference where he met with indigenous people.

Baldwin, 61, said he finds it “very, very unsettling” that people in power oppose the indigenous people and want to “to get rid of them by whatever means necessary” in order to take the resources of the land.

The actor claimed that Americans think they are doing the right thing because of power and resources, but said America is becoming more like other areas of the world who push regulations aside.

Baldwin warned that this could be our last chance in the next 20 years to help preserve the Earth.

“There are things that we just can’t imagine that can happen in terms of the food supply, in terms of climate change, in terms of flooding in coastal areas in the United States and beyond,” he said. “The time is now to make certain sacrifices … so that this planet will remain habitable”
