Actor and environmentalist James Cromwell is speaking out against the Keystone XL oil pipeline, and would go to great lengths to stop its construction.

For years, Cromwell has been standing up for animal rights and all things regarding the environment.

In a recent interview with The Canadian Press, Cromwell revealed the Keystone XL will do more harm than good.

“I know for a lot of Canadians it represents a lot of money, but we’re killing the planet,” he said. “If this goes through, I probably will chain myself to a bulldozer. There comes a point where you have to stand up. If you don’t, you’re responsible for what you get.”

If people think Cromwell is all talk, that’s definitely not so. Just this past February Cromwell and a PETA member protested the University of Wisconsin’s use of cats as lab animals. He was arrested, but saw it in a positive light, especially when he heard the protest was caught on camera.

“People saw us and heard us, and if we’d known, we would’ve gone up to the cameras, but I think a lot of people got out their phones and took photographs,” Cromwell said. “I’m sure it’ll go viral, and that’s why I’m here.”

Cromwell feels the same passion about the Keystone XL pipeline and warns that it is “one of the worst things that could happen to this planet right now.”
