Chris Noth on climate change: "Rhetoric isn't enough ... we've got to be acting, radically, now"

Coming up tonight at 9, Robin Meade makes herself comfortable in Piers Morgan's usual chair, becoming the latest talent to fill in as part of "Guest Host Week."

With the British television presenter across the pond, HLN's lead anchor assumes control this evening, welcoming television star Chris Noth to offer his positions on everything from politics and climate change, to Valentine's Day and Manolo Blahnik's.

Joining the guest host for a face to face conversation, the man known as "Mr. Big" from the "Sex and the City" franchise opens up about a cause he feels passionately about – the environment – and the ways in which he wants to see it receive more attention.

On the heels of Tuesday's State of the Union address, Meade asks her guest if he was satisfied:

"So, when you heard the president speak last night, about climate change, and that we must do something about climate change, was that enough for you?"

"No, no, no," says Noth, flatly. "Look, I'm a huge supporter of Obama's – he's the first president I ever donated money to. But I think in terms of climate change and the environment, he's been, at best, disappointing."

On Sunday, Noth will join Whoopi Goldberg to host the Rainforest Action Network's Annual Gala, an event that will help the organization's overarching goal of "protecting the world's rainforests, stemming climate change and defending human rights."

Calling the current environmental situation a "planetary emergency," the 58-year-old Golden Globe nominee calls for less talking, more doing:

"Rhetoric isn't enough, we've heard a lot of rhetoric. We've got to be acting, radically, now, and we just don't seem to be able to get governments to have the kind of courage to do that."

For more from the man currently portraying Peter Florrick on CBS's hit drama "The Good Wife," tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" with Meade at 9. And, for more on Noth's organization, and it's upcoming auction, visit both and

    I know I'm being a little short sighted when I say this, but I can get used to 80 degree days in november followed by 70 degree days in Northern California (like today) in February!

    I wonder how many rainforests Mr. Noth has actually been in and for how long? He conveyed no knowledge of what he is supporting in his interview.

    When I read about how we have experienced yet another global warm record, or any of the many record breaking weather events of late, my heart sinks. And, they just keep coming on, and on, and on. It seems to be accelerating too.

    I get this sickening pit at my bottom of my stomach that won't go away. And, I fear that if I don't do something, my punishment will be Al Gore haunting me in the afterlife. Forever and ever. Now, I just can't let that happen, can I? He's much too professorial to be much fun I’m sure, and when I die (most likely in a new record breaking beyond biblical climate event), I just want to have fun. So, no Al please, not that, anything but that.

    As such, I have decided to attend the Climate Action on the National Mall this Sunday, the 17th at 11:30 AM by the Washington Memorial. I don't want to go, I have better things to do, but I must and so I shall. It is for all of our sakes, young and old at this point. And to get that Al out of my future dead head.

    THANK YOU Mr. Roth for being so outspoken about the reality of climate change and it's horrific effects. Apparently in four years all the ice in the Arctic will have melted. What about the protection and welfare of magnificent polar bears? What about all the other wildlife species???? Can you imagine living on a planet with no more wondrous wildlife? Butterlies, bats, honeybees etc. are disappearing at an alarming rate because of climate change due to human destructive behaviour. We are the ONLY destructive species on the planet! The reality is, however, that we CANNOT DEPEND ON POLITICIANS TO FIX THIS PROBLEM......IT IS ALL OUR PROBLEM. Unless we drastically change our lifestyles we are doomed and all the INNOCENT species along with us. One scary example is that the sales of gas-guzzling vehicles are UP! When will we ever learn!

      Actually the polar bear population is at a record high! The earth goes through periodic warming and cooling cycles, what we are experiencing is not unusual. To think that we humans could possibly wreak such havoc on the climate is laughable. We take much to much credit and think way too much of ourselves if that is the case. For the past several thousand years the climate has been relatively stable, changes are coming and there is nothing we have done to bring them on and there is nothing we can do to stop it. So just relax and enjoy the warmth!

    I was so impressed with Chris on the show, and inspired by his support of Rainforest Action Network.

    The polar caps have frozen and thawed many times in this planets history, ice ages come and go, the Sahara desert was a rain forest long before man came along. Our history on this planet is a miniscule and the climate has made many drastic changes many times before we were here. Not a damn thing can be done about it!
