Leonardo DiCaprio calls for the elimination of fossil fuels

13

Leonardo DiCaprio is worried about the current situation of environmental emissions. The dedicated environmentalist, while being honored for his philanthropic work at the World Economic Forum in Davos, spoke highly of the recent progress that’s been made in the fight against climate change, but stressed the work that still needs be done.
“Last month in Paris, world leaders reached an historic agreement that provides a concrete framework to reduce carbon emissions,” he said. “This was an important first step, but we are a long way off from claiming victory in this fight for our future – for the survival of our planet.”
DiCaprio pointed to the elimination of fossil fuels as the next big step to be taken, urging business leaders to leave behind “corporate greed” in the oil industry and instead focus on the betterment of the planet.
“We simply cannot afford to allow the corporate greed of the coal, oil and gas industries to determine the future of humanity. Those entities with a financial interest in preserving this destructive system have denied, and even covered-up the evidence of our changing climate,” he said. “Enough is enough. You know better. The world knows better. History will place the blame for this devastation squarely at their feet.”
He continued: “Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong. Twenty years ago, we described this problem as an addiction. Today, we possess the means to end this reliance.”

DiCaprio stressed that though there is good progress being made, there is much to be done in the future. “The challenge before us requires each and every one of us to take action. We owe this to ourselves, but more importantly to the future generations who are counting on us.

  1. Frankly, I think that he is quite correct. We are taking from inside the earth that which was never intended to be combined with the atmosphere to be breathed. Climate change is only one aspect of this. The air is becoming poisoned. Trees are dying because of this pollution. Complacent people should be forced to live where the pollution is the worst. The air, the water, and the soil are being destroyed by greed.
    When the soil will no long produce any food, when the air cannot be breathed in without choking, when the water cramps the belly first drink, then we will understand that it was never all about money!

  2. The air, the water, and the soil are being destroyed by greed.

    Yes, true statement, it is not being destroyed by “climate change” …

  3. DiCaprio bought a long coral reef island in Belize. It is eroding and already very close to sea level. If the sea level rises, his island investment will disappear! He bought it before full awareness of AGW. He is either suckered in to buy bad property or has decided since to jump on the AGW bandwagon in a desperate effort to save his island by forcing the rest of the world to comply with CO2 constraint. While in Alberta Canada filming latest video, he experienced a normal winter condition here called a Chinook… they occur every winter including 1988 Winter Olympics here in Calgary. He misrepresented it to the media as a severe AGW event. Either willful ignorance or a deliberate deception on his part. I think even Anonymous could be deceived by things going on today…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gDErDwXqhc

  4. A lot of the millenials and forty somethings are just so much more conscientious than the boomers I grew up with. They just seem to be better people on most fronts. I was beginning to think the human race is just some sort of virus the earth was having.

  5. Some of these comments show just how stupid people are. The one about Leo manipulating things to save his island. Priceless. And all this bitching about his jet. Omg. So when thousands of planes take off every day that’s ok? I bet you have been on one at some point. How about you walk to your next vacation. Or get some bicycles for your family and have at it. He is trying to do something. Trying to save the planet for your ungrateful ass. So here is the question. WTF have any of you done to make an impact and make the world better? Have you contributed any money? Taken time out of your day to do anything expect bitch about someone who is doing something? Your 15 minutes are up.

  6. has it accrued to anyone that horseback was great for our planet forever, maybe modern solar cooled horse drawn carriages can comeback to cities and more.

  7. What a fucktard. All these extreme environmentalists seem to forget that everything contains plastics which is derived from oil – I guess he won’t be needing his cell phone, his vehicle, and his house will need to be built 100 percent out of stone, or wood with hand driven nails. Bye bye to flying anywhere because jet fuel is also derived from oil. Bye bye luxury yachts because they contain plastics and powered by fuel. Yes the Hollywood types can rant and rave all they want but until they go live in a cave somewhere, screw their opinion!
