Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jesse Ventura, american climate heroes

The political successes of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a former Mr. universe body-builder and hollywood star and Jesse Ventura, as a former wrestling star and navy seal, have at their time been mostly ridiculed in europe. The elected governors of California and Minnesota have been portrayed as crazy and funny examples of the dysfunctionality of US-American democracy in the european press.

In retrospect, when compared to almost any career politician in the USA, especially on the right, these unlikely political figures seem to be the ones that represent sanity and real concern for the american people.

Arnold Schwarzenegger set the 8th largest economy in the world, California, on the rails to becoming a postcarbon economy by 2050. This week he anounced that he would sue the fossil fuel industry for first degree murder, using a strategy that has brought down the US-Tabaco industry decades ago. See his speech on the paris climate conference here:

Jesse Ventura today uses his popularity by starring in a political show under his name, "The World according to Jesse", fighting for Peace, LGBT rights, against corruption and against climate change:

Please carry on Arnold and Jesse! I am a fan!
