Robert Redford fears little progress will be made in combatting climate change in the remainder of President Obama’s second term.

“Am I disappointed in the outcome? Somewhat, not entirely,” Redford told The Hollywood Reporter. “You have to look at what [President Obama]’s up against. There’s never been a more paralyzed system to try to work with.”

Redford attended the launch of Pitzer College’s new environmental initiative that involves a fossil fuel divestment climate-action model. He slammed the current state of politics after the event on April 12.

“There’s too much partisan warfare. It’s sad,” he said.

The veteran actor has been an outspoken environmental activist and endorsed Obama in 2012.
