Our planet is threatened by Trump's careless decision on Paris Accord' - Leonardo DiCaprio rants

Hollywood actor and renowned environmental crusader, Leonardo DiCaprio is not here for President Trump's position on climate change.

In an Instagram post soon after news broke that Trump would be withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, DiCaprio put the full force of his star power behind his beliefs saying, 'our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before'. Read his full post after the cut...

Today, the future livability of our planet was threatened by President Trump's careless decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris Agreement. Our future on this planet is now more at risk than ever before. For Americans and those in the world community looking for strong leadership on climate issues, this action is deeply discouraging. Now, more than ever, we must be determined to solve climate change, and to challenge those leaders who do not believe in scientific facts or empirical truths. It is time for all of us to stand up, organize, fight back, and channel our energy into grassroots political action.

If this act from an 11 year old doesn’t teach you forgiveness, I doubt if anything else will…

It reads:
“My daughter has not seen her biological dad since she was four. She’s 11 now. When she was two he contacted me and asked if I would allow him to terminate his parental rights so he could stop paying child support and I agreed.. I wanted to spare her the heartache of a revolving door father and the sacrifice of the financial support was well worth him never being able to disappoint her again.

I never lied to her about where he went or who her dad was.. I have always answered her questions in the most age appropriate way possible.

When she was four he contacted me and told me he has been diagnosed with cancer and would like to see her. I set aside a day and we met in the park. He had asked for two hours. He stayed 20 minutes and we never heard from him again..

Over the summer we ran into somebody that knows him and they commented on how she looks like his other children. They elaborated that he has settled down and has a family now. My stomach tied itself in knots thinking of how hurtful that must be to my daughter..

I cut the conversation short and we got in the car to leave and that’s when I saw her smiling. She said:

Please someone should advise all these illiterate actors/artistes to shut up.

The planet has been existing for thousands of years at least, and empirical data gathered by scientists show that not upto 25% of anything resembling global warming is due to human activity i.e the planet will heat up and cool down whthere or not humans do anything about it.

We dont have to give Al-gore and is team all our money to scream "the sky is falling".

Moreover, the laws of US says that no treaty can be signed without 2/3rd support of the house, meaning Obama signed the treaty illegally.

trump pulling out means that the Us can now negotiate on its own terms.

Hypocrite...How much harm have you done to the environment flying all over the place with ur private jet!!!

You don't pull out of a none binding contract to them renegotiate something you haven't fully negotiated first.

Stop regurgitating nonsense. The entire world, with all our qualifications and understanding of world affairs can't be wrong.

You're allowed to shut up, when you don't understand what's going on. What Trump has done, sends a bag signal to the world and was done for his own interests and not that of the American people or the world at large.

Beyond the environment, the area health consequences for polluting the planet. India is filled with mutants, people are becoming sterile, your IPOB people are becoming more and more retarded with every generation, let's not even talk about cancer from free radicals in the air, aerosols and asthma inducing particles.

Millions have displaced because of erosion, famine, monsoons. America is constantly bombarded by freak weather, so yes there is empirical evidence to suggest we are fucking up the planet, and it is the moral and responsible thing to do, to try to at least stop it or reverse it.

We can't decide it won't work, without trying.
