  1. we are all concerned, are we not?

  2. Wow!

  3. Yep I will take advice on science from a high school drop out

    • Lorne50,
      I looked at your site. I’d recommend trying to learn science from anyone who will teach you. Regardless of background, they are unlikely to be as clueless as you.

    • So will I, as long as he is taking his advice from the world’s leading scientists. Like Leo is.

    • You shouldn’t! You should take your advice on science from the actual scientific community. But, as it so happens, in this case they agree with one another.

  4. Some people quite willingly and gullibly take advice on science from a certain college drop out’s blog.
    Really, really bad advice at that.
    Judging from lorne50’s wordpress blog, he appears to be one of them.

    • These arguers are real motormouths, thanks for looking him up so we don’t have to.

      Leonardo diCaprio is quite intelligent. There are many brilliant people who have incomplete educations. I challenge you criticizers to attain what they have achieved.

      We laypeople are quite capable of thought, unlike those with blinding prejudice.

  5. Leo was great. So was Jenny Beavan at the end of her speech (Mad Max costume design):

    “”I just want to say one quite serious thing, I’ve been thinking about this a lot, but actually it could be horribly prophetic, Mad Max, if we’re not kinder to each other, and if we don’t stop polluting our atmosphere, so you know, it could happen,”

    Video is blocked, which is too bad. No doubt one will appear later.

    • Link broken. I found a video, or you can paste in the end of that link:
      http://oscar.go.com/news/winners/jenny-beavan-wins-costume-design-oscars-2016

      repeating this, it’s important.
      ”I just want to say one quite serious thing, I’ve been thinking about this a lot, but actually it could be horribly prophetic, Mad Max, if we’re not kinder to each other, and if we don’t stop polluting our atmosphere, so you know, it could happen,”

      Once you get it to play, go to minute 1:30 if you are in a hurry. The clothing statement is fun too, but please ignore all the mishigass about that.

  6. Some background on how DiCaprio become knowledgeable about Climate Change in this link here

  7. Congrats to Leonardo on his Oscar, he is one of those you can call “The Actor”. And I like the way he has exposed himself on what he believes what is right to do at given moment. Hat tip !!!

  8. I’m impressed. DiCaprio’s first Oscar, an award that is a dream and career highlight for any actor, and he spent 60 seconds of his 140 second speech talking articulately and passionately about climate change. Well done, sir.

  9. OT, and a blatant plug at that, but for those who’ve been meaning to read Elizabeth Kolbert’s “Sixth Extinction”–last year’s Pulitzer winner for non-fiction, you can now get the gist here:

    http://hubpages.com/literature/Elizabeth-Kolberts-The-Sixth-Extinction-A-Summary-Review

    Her book is, among other things, a positively Asimovean work of accessible science history. It includes quite a bit on climate change and ‘its equally evil twin’, ocean acidification.

  10. He was ahead of his time, again.
