Leonardo DiCaprio Slams U.S. Presidential Candidates for Dismissing Climate Change

The 'Revenant' actor calls out U.S. politicians who played down the environmental problems during their presidential campaigns.

AceShowbiz - Leonardo DiCaprio speaks out against presidential candidates who are insensitive about climate change issues. While in Japan to promote his critically-acclaimed movie "The Revenant", the actor says it's important for U.S. to have a president who takes action to solve the environmental problems.

"We should not have a candidate who doesn't believe in modern science to be leading our country," the Oscar-winning star said as quoted by The AFP. "Climate change is one of the most concerning issues facing all humanity and the United States needs to do its part."

The 41-year-old environmental activist didn't mention any names, but Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has called climate change a "very expensive hoax" and fellow GOP candidate Ted Cruz referred to it as a "pseudo-scientific theory."

DiCaprio has signed a deal with Netflix to make documentary to raise awareness about the pressing matters and he hopes to release it before the U.S. election in November. "We've been traveling around the world documenting climate change," he said.
