It'll be a return to the Dark Ages if Donald Trump is elected, according to Patagonia's founder Yvon Chouinard.

In a recent interview with The New Yorker, the environmentalist and businessman painted a dark picture of the future when the topic of the current election cycle came up.

"Trump is the perfect person to take us to the apocalypse," Chouinard told the New Yorker, after claiming we're "seeing the end of empire, the end of globalism."Advertisement

Chouinard has a bit of a history of outspoken, blunt opinions. He fiercely opposed the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a trade agreement between countries that's become a controversial issue throughout the election, noting that his criticism got himself "On Obama's shit list."

His biggest concern, however, is climate change.

"Nobody's mentioning global warming," Chouinard said. "No one wants to deal with it."

In response, Chouinard said: "That was her environmental message? Oh, God."Advertisement
