DiCaprio laments lack of climate change questions during US Presidential debate
The Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio has traveled to every nook and corner of the world for his climate change documentary “Before the Flood”. DiCaprio has devoted to himself to propagate the negative effects of climate change. The actor expressed his wishes more attention was being paid to the issue, particularly during the recent Presidential debates.
“This issue has become so polarizing while at the same time one of the least discussed — and probably least understood — of our political discourse, Not one question about climate change was asked during the presidential or vice presidential debates — not one”, DiCaprio told the crowd at a Los Angeles screening of his film on Monday night.
DiCaprio’s statement is right because, during the three presidential debates and the vice presidential debate, no question about climate change was directed to the candidates from moderators.
“Fisher and I set out to make a film to educate people around the planet on the urgent issues of climate change and to inspire them to be part of the solution. I applaud National Geographic for their commitment to bringing this film to as many people as possible at such a critical time.” This is what DiCaprio had to say about his team’s effort.
“Before the flood” is to premiere on National Geographic on October 30 and will be available commercial-free in over 170 countries and 45 languages. Before the Flood will also appear on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, iTunes and Google Play entirely free of charge from October 30 till November 6.
