hugh_climateThe NY Times has a brief interview with Hugh Jackman on his involvement with NYC Climate Week — and the actor opens up on future orgs he may align himself with as well. Here are some highlights:

So what can we do to fight global warming?
I think start at home. It’s an issue of consumption, of course. Simple things. Also, drinking Fair Trade coffee. For me, I suppose, using my voice. I make a living pretending to be someone else, so I’m not going to lie to you that I’m an expert on this, or on the politics of it, or how to get these things done. But I did make a promise to Dukali, this farmer [in Ethiopia], that when Climate Week happened or when the leaders were here that I would do my best to edge my way into a room to tell his story. And to try and make sure that his voice and other impoverished people from developing nations are heard, because they need to be heard.

A lot of celebrities do that. Are you considering becoming a U.N. ambassador like Nicole Kidman or Jay-Z?

I think just president is where I’m heading. No, uh, yeah, I mean of course. I think it’s a responsibility and a fantastic opportunity to use your voice and whatever profile you have to further really great work. That, really, people like Tim and World Vision, who work full-time, are really doing the work, but anything I can do to highlight their work and to make a contribution I try and do, yeah.
