Leonardo DiCaprio feels optimistic that the debate over climate
change has begun to wane and world leaders are finally starting to take
it more seriously.
“The scientific community has been screaming
out loud. Ninety-nine per cent of the scientific community is in
agreement that man is contributing to (climate change),” DiCaprio told
The Associated Press on the red carpet for his new film, “The Revenant”
on Wednesday.
“The argument is over. Anyone that doesn’t believe
that climate change is happening doesn’t believe in science,” said
DiCaprio, who has remained an active player for the issue.
The
actor previously has addressed the United Nations on climate control,
donated millions of dollars to environmental causes, and narrated the
2014 short film, “Carbon,” which presents ideas for climate change
solutions.

But after the U.N. Climate Conference in Paris, which ended
last month, he feels world leaders are finally willing to address the
issue more seriously.
“No one has the answer what the future is
going to look like, and no one can foresee the dramatic effect that
climate instability will have on our planet and the biodiversity in it,
but I’m just very proud for the first time we’ve taken a step in the
right direction,” Dicaprio said.
