The 11th Hour’s Leonardo DiCaprio Addresses The United Nations On Climate Change

DiCaprio, one of the most outspoken celebrities on the issue of climate change, framed the topic in unsparing terms. “To be clear, this is not about just telling people to change their light bulbs or to buy a hybrid car; this disaster has grown beyond the choices that individuals make. This is now about our industries and our governments around the world taking decisive and large-scale action,” he said. Read the full story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Actor, documentarian and newly-minted UN Messenger Of Peace, Leonardo DiCaprio is well known for his efforts in tackling the issue of climate change.  The 11th Hour is a film produced and narrated by Leonardo Dicaprio.  DiCaprio made sure the music featured was equally representative of the intent and theme of the pro-environment documentary.

Adapted from the novel by Laura Kasischke: Kat Connors is 17 years old when her perfect homemaker mother, Eve, a beautiful, enigmatic, and haunted woman, disappears – just as Kat is discovering and relishing her newfound sexuality. Having lived for so long in a stifled, emotionally repressed household, she barely registers her mother’s absence and certainly doesn’t blame her doormat of a father, Brock, for the loss. In fact, it’s almost a relief. But as time passes, Kat begins to come to grips with how deeply Eve’s disappearance has affected her. Returning home on a break from college, she finds herself confronted with the truth about her mother’s departure, and her own denial about the events surrounding it… [ via Magnola Pictures]
