Leonardo DiCaprio Gives Earth Day Speech at UN (Video)

Leonardo DiCaprio speaks during the Paris Agreement for Climate Change Signing at the United Nations on Friday morning (April 22) in New York City.

The 41-year-old actor gave a speech on Earth Day to urge the world to do something about climate change.

“Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong,” Leo said.

“We can congratulate each other today but it will mean nothing if you return to your countries and fail to push beyond the promises of this historic agreement. Now is the time for bold, unprecedented action,” Leo told the crowd of world leaders. “The world is now watching, you will either be lauded by future generations or vilified by them.”

    Incredible speech Leo! Well done. ❤

    Hi, my only question is why all the bodyguards at such a high profile function. I would think we would very secure. This is not to say no bodyguards.

  • Guess

    You’re BACK! How are you?

  • Moon Gazer

    Yikes. I get their point and reasoning. I do. But it seems all those animals die in vain now. Create something with it that leaves no misunderstanding of what it represents. Let people stare it in the face and hurt by it. Burning it to ashes, it will just be soon forgotten.
    I’ve watched beauty grow from chaos – like when you set woods on fire, the earth grows back green and strong. Create a strong message of art, and make the world weep.

    Right or wrong, that’s my opinion on it.

  • Moon Gazer

    Hey sweetie …
    I’m alright , better than yesterday, better than a few days before that. So I’m on the right path to okay. :)

    I don’t really know how to answer this without putting my hurt on the internet.

    She’s not okay.
    I really can’t talk about it …

    Any plans for your weekend?

  • Shelly

    Hehe :DDDDDDD

  • Guess

    Sorry didn’t mean to upset you or anything. Should be a nice weekend with good weather and shopping at the outlet. How about you?

  • Moon Gazer

    Hey sweetie … Doing okay. One day at a time is what I’m working on. Today, at this moment I’m alright. Later , I’ll let cha know when I get there.

    I feel numb. Tired, my foot is throbbing. But I’m alright :)
    Thanks for asking.

    How’s your day.?

  • Moon Gazer

    You’re okay. No need to apologize.
    Lucky you! My weather sucks. Its raining cats out there.
    I can’t really do much. I broke a few toes and I’m layed up unless I’m on crutches and I’m just rubbish on crutches.
    So I’m just sticking around the house.

    Shopping for nik nacs ? Or clothes etc?

  • Moon Gazer

    Hey gorgeous. Thanks for the chat last night. Xx

  • Moon Gazer

    Lmfa . Sounds like a pretty good weekend to me! (Minus the studies)

  • Guess

    Clothes and new hand bag. Sorry about your foot. Working too hard on the farm, LOL

  • Shelly

    Your Welcome girl! Glad to see you back homie!

  • Moon Gazer

    Huge hugs

  • Anna David

    He looks great. yeah I was wondering that. Probably doesn’t want people to approach him or he is worried about his safety there.

  • Anna David

    Great speech Leo. Thanks everyone for the pics and tweets!! He looks great.

  • Shelly

    & upvotes! Lmao ;DDD

  • Revengefan0101

  • Shelly
  • Guess

    Maybe both we all that’s going on right now. Plus he travels so much.

  • Moon Gazer

    Lmfa . Yes !!! I dropped a sheet of plyboard across,my foot and crushed the tip of the pad bone to bits. That will never heal … And my bone shot out through my toe nail causing an open fracture.

    I’m just lucky I guess. Next time I work I’ll be wearing steel toes.

    I’m just lucky that my doctor is my boss (its his farm) so I’ll still have a job when I’m better.

    Great to see him in this context. Wouldn’t surprise me if he ventured into politics at some point.

  • Moon Gazer

    Its not useful yet. Its still healing. Hurts like hell, so I know its still there. They said 6 weeks until I can walk fully.

  • Guess

    That’s a really bad injury. Maybe stop working on the farm,:(

  • Guess

    Me too:)

  • Moon Gazer

    No. Its all good. I’ll just buy steel toe boots. I need the job. No where else around here is going to pay me what I get paid there.

    It is bad …. But it could have been worse, so I’m looking on the bright side . I can get waited on hand and foot , and ice cream. I can sit and eat ice cream while watching movies. Its like a being lazy is okay free pass.
