Liberal actress and activist Jane Fonda criticized President Joe Biden for failing to put forth “bold” climate policies.

“Well, it’s nice to be hopeful again, and it’s much better to push a moderate than to fight a fascist, right? We’re very, very grateful for what he’s been doing. He’s done a lot of very good things. But not enough, not bold enough and not fast enough,” Fonda said Tuesday during an appearance on CNN’s New Day.

“We’re up against time. The scientists say we have less than nine years to cut our emissions in half. Line 3 is going in the absolute opposite direction, and the news every day is telling us emissions are going up, not down,” she added.

Biden has vowed to fight climate change since taking office, including pledging to slash U.S. emissions in half by 2030.

“This is the decisive decade,” Biden said at a climate summit in April. “This is the decade that we must make decisions to avoid the worst consequences of the climate crisis.”

“This is a moral imperative. An economic imperative. A moment of peril but also a moment of extraordinary possibilities,” the president added.

Fonda, however, is calling on the Biden administration to cancel Trump administration-era permits for pipelines, specifically saying Biden should respond to the current construction of the Enbridge Line 3 pipeline.

"So we have to put our bodies on the line and do whatever we can to get our administration to call a halt to these permits," she said.

Fonda has long been a climate activist and has been arrested on multiple occasions for protests on the Capitol steps.

“Greta [Thunberg] said we have to behave like it’s a crisis,” Fonda said in 2019. “We have to behave like our houses are on fire.”
