Leonardo DiCaprio, concerned citizen, at the United Nations

… [O]ne of the most keenly watched speeches at the summit was made by actor Leonardo DiCaprio, a freshly appointed UN climate envoy.
He said he played fictitious characters solving fictitious problems for a living.

“I believe humankind has looked at climate change in that same way: as if it were a fiction, happening to someone else’s planet, as if pretending that climate change wasn’t real would somehow make it go away,” he said.
