Riddle me this: when you think of someone who’d be most likely to save the world, do you think of Robert Redford?

No? Shocker.

Nevertheless, Redford (this guy, for those of you young enough not to know or care) is on billionaire Richard Branson’s short list for his new climate change coalition that he claims will singlehandedly document and prove the Earth’s doom, thereby leading humanity to take instant action to save ourselves and the planet.

Branson, the eccentric British entrepreneur who owns the massive Virgin Group, announced he’s putting a group of 14 people together in a group he’s dubbed the “Planetary Guardians” - not to be confused with Chris Pratt, his walking tree, and that talking raccoon.

Instead, these fine upstanding randos will join well-funded forces to “safeguard” the Earth by documenting “the nine principal planetary boundaries every year,” which Branson says will include how many rainforests there are, how many species are going extinct each year, and “exactly where are we with climate change.” In addition to Redford (who is, again, a Hollywood celeb with no scientific credentials whatsoever), other supposed experts who made the cut for this auspicious motley crew include Jane Goodall and former Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos.

Why? Heck if we know. But rest assured that they will defend us from the coming climapocalypse.

“It’s a fact of life,” Branson said in an interview with NBC, echoing predictions of the planet's demise that have been circulated - and conveniently recalculated - by leftists for years. “The amount of carbon that’s going into Earth’s atmosphere is heating up the world and it’s going to do a lot of damage to the world if we don’t get it under control."

Must be nice to have so much free time.
