DiCaprio Calls Out Climate Change Deniers at Global Citizen Festival

At Saturday’s Global Citizen Festival in New York City celebrities, politicians, and climate activists lectured festival goers and viewers at home on how to shun non-believers and stop the impending climate crisis.

One of those speakers was award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

The activist lambasted American politicians for pulling out of the Paris Climate Accords and for not meeting the standards set out in the “agreement” four years ago. Yet, since exiting from the deal, the U.S. has reduced carbon emissions and taken steps to lead on environmentalism. Oops.

DiCaprio, who recently got called out for using private jets while lecturing on the alleged impending climate crisis, said criticism of the recent climate strikes amounts to not caring about our future. Here are some of his remarks from Hollywood Reporter:

“Last Friday, young people led the world in strike. Millions of individuals did more than simply walk out of their schools and places of employment. They took a stand. They set an example of true leadership that our planet so desperately needs. These young people have said clearly, definitively and without fear, that the time for inaction is over,” said DiCaprio. “Yet, surprisingly, some have reacted to this movement with insulting tweets and negative talking points — individuals that seem to care more about profit and their own self-interests than about your own future. But we know that the climate youth movement is more important and crucial than at any time in human history.”

DiCaprio added, “…unless you live in alternate reality, there is no more time for denial.”
