Leonardo DiCaprio DESTROYS Climate Change Denial At Climate Summit 2014 (VIDEO)
In impassioned and powerful opening remarks, award winning and highly acclaimed actor Leonardo DiCaprio shamed the international community for not acting urgently on climate change.
“As an actor, I pretend for a living. I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems. I believe that mankind has looked at climate change in that same way. As if pretending that climate change wasn’t real would somehow make it go away, but I think we all know better than that now. Every week we’re seeing new and undeniable climate events, evidence that accelerated climate change is here right now. Droughts are intensifying, our oceans are acidifying with methane plumes rising up from the ocean floor; we are seeing extreme weather events and the West Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets melting at unprecedented rates, decades ahead of scientific projections. None of this is rhetoric, and none of it is hysteria. It is fact.”
