Leo does not take this planet for granted!

Leo does not take this planet for granted!

Giving one of the most memorable, sustainable, tender, emotional, sensitive, aware, conscious speeches of all Oscar history, Leonardo Di Caprio has deserved to be this years top Green Celebrity of the year. Drawing attention to climate change, Di Caprio said,  “The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world. A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. I thank you all for this amazing award tonight. Let us not take this planet for granted. I do not take tonight for granted.”
