How to use act upon in a sentence?

  1. Janet Napolitano:

  2. Frans Timmermans:

    We've seen over the last couple of years that radical climate-change deniers have changed their position because the facts are so overwhelming. It's an untenable position, i would assume, as a politician myself, that Donald Trump is thinking about the next election and he's looking at American society. And if you see how much support there is in American society to act upon climate change, he's probably doing the math and thinking that if I want to be reelected, I have to take this seriously.

  3. Clarence Mitchell:

  4. Tom Kiefer:

    I cannot understand why anyone would want to voluntarily give up an item like a rosary, Bible or photo of their child, or for that matter an extra pair of shoes, pants, shirt or jacket, these are pictures of how people and their personal belongings are treated. If someone wants to judge the ethics and morality of all this, it is up to them to decide what is right and what is wrong and, if they choose to do so, to act upon those feelings.

  5. Yoel Sano:

    The bigger risk is not that they (the Japanese) will be targeted but that they will be caught up in incidents where they are playing a bigger role, japan needs to develop greater awareness and greater ability to solve or act upon these situations.
