Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio addresses the UN Climate Summit in New York.
He said: “I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems. I believe that mankind has looked at climate change in that same way.¬†As if pretending that climate change wasn’t real would somehow make it go away, but I think we all know better than that now.”

DiCaprio’s remarks come days after the actor stood with thousands in New York City’s People’s Climate March on Sunday. The march brought in an estimated 400,000 people seeking to put an end to global warming.
“Every week we’re seeing new and undeniable climate events, evidence that accelerated climate change is here right now,” DiCaprio added in his speech. “None of this is rhetoric, and none of it is hysteria. It is fact.”
