Patricia Arquette said “we’re going to pay a huge price” for President Donald Trump rolling back Barack Obama-era climate regulations.

“It’s something we can’t turn back the clock on,” Arquette told an audience Monday night in Washington, D.C., according to The Hill. “Dismantling the [Environmental Protection Agency] and rolling back all these climate regulations … we’re going to pay a huge price for that. I’m concerned with legislation, but I at least hope we can change that again.” (RELATED: Actress Demands Equal Pay, Told To Check Her Privilege)

“But as far as climate change, there’s no negotiating the devastating effects of disregard and destruction at that level,” she added.

The actress has been outspoken against Trump and encouraged people to mobilize against his agenda.

“It is actually very effective when people call their congresspeople,” Arquette said. “And obviously every vote counts, not just our votes but the House and Senate votes. So we have got to get more people elected that will question these policies.”

Trump’s climate policies have also drawn hysteric posts from 62-year-old filmmaker Michael Moore, who claimed that they would mean the extinction of human beings on this earth.

“Historians in the near future will mark today, March 28, 2017, as the day the extinction of human life on earth began, thanks 2 Donald Trump,” Moore tweeted, adding later that the Environmental Protection Agency has been prevented from focusing on “climate change.”

“Trump has signed orders killing all of Obama’s climate change regulations. The EPA is prohibited henceforth from focusing on climate change,” he tweeted.
