New Zealand-born actress Lucy Lawless – best known as Xena Warrior Princess – has joined with Kiwi actor Cliff Curtis (Die Hard 4) in supporting Greenpeace's new Sign On climate campaign.

The campaign aims to generate support to convince New Zealand’s Prime Minister, John Key, to sign on to a 40 percent emission reduction target by 2020 at the UN climate talks in Copenhagen in December.

“I’m signing on because there’s no Planet B,” said Lawless. “There’s nowhere else for our kids and grandchildren to go. We need to get on with the business of tackling climate change.”

Other supporters of the campaign include Whale Rider’s Keisha Castle-Hughes and Flight of the Conchords' Rhys Darby.
