Leonardo DiCaprio is sick and tired of waiting for President Donald Trump to recognize the dangers of climate change, and he's doing something about it.
DiCaprio is donating $20 million dollars to various organizations to fight climate change, according to a report from People Magazine. In a speech at Yale University, the Titanic star said:
"There exist today many proven technologies in renewable energy, clean transportation, and sustainable agriculture, that we can begin to build a brighter future for all of us. Our challenge is to find new ways to power our lives, employ millions of people and turn every individual into an advocate for clean air and drinkable water. We must demand that politicians accept climate science and make bold commitments before it is too late."
DiCaprio went on to say that he met with President Trump prior to the election to try and get him to see the light on climate change, but Trump doesn't appear to have paid DiCaprio much heed, announcing (although maybe later rescinding) plans to drop out of the Paris climate agreement and appointing sentient oil spill Scott Pruitt as head of the EPA.
"I still believe that the United States has the potential to lead the world on this issue, DiCaprio continued. "We can only hope that the President begins to see it too, before it is too late."
But if he doesn't, DiCaprio will be happy to take the lead.
