Arnold Schwarzenegger has declared legal war with global oil companies for perceived contributions to global warming and for “knowingly killing people all over the world.”

During a March 11 Politico Off Message live podcast at the Austin-based SXSW festival, the former Terminator and Kindergarten Cop actor revealed having several conversations with private law firms to explore lawsuits. During the interview, he declared his reasons behind the move.

“The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because of fossil fuels, and on top of it that it would be risky for people’s lives, that it would kill,” said Schwarzenegger. “I don’t think there’s any difference: If you walk into a room and you know you’re going to kill someone, it’s first-degree murder; I think it’s the same thing with the oil companies,” he added.

Schwarzenegger also went on to discuss the obligation of companies to properly advise consumers of any health risks through proper labeling.

“It’s absolutely irresponsible to know that your product is killing people and not have a warning label on it, like tobacco,” he said. “Every gas station on it, every car should have a warning label on it, every product that has fossil fuels should have a warning label on it.”

No word on a timeline for filing the lawsuit or the names of the oil companies Schwarzenegger is looking to sue.
