DiCaprio argues that ignoring the scientific community is a disgrace and said that corporations should contribute if we want to have a positive solution to this situation.
"It all comes down to the evolution of the consciousness of our species and the decision whether we will react in time. Now experts have given us a period of nine years in which the consequences of the climate crisis will become clearer, more realistic and irreversible. That's not what makes me optimistic. "The world we see today, with all these catastrophes, will not get better, it will only get worse."
The actor says that he is proud to be part of a film that wants to show the reality and emphasize the urgency of action, but believes that the efforts must come from the private sector, ie from the companies that produce 70% of the world shows.
