Leonardo DiCaprio on U.S. Exiting Paris Agreement: 'Today, Our Planet Suffered'

Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the most outspoken celebrities on the issue of climate change and he’s reacting to President Trump‘s decision for the United States to exit the Paris Agreement.

The agreement was between 195 countries in a move to combat climate change and people around the world are slamming Trump‘s move as a big step backward.

Leo formed the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998 when he was just 24 to help promote environmental awareness. Recently, he executive produced and appeared in the documentary Before the Flood, which focused on global warming.

“Today, our planet suffered. It’s more important than ever to take action. #ParisAgreement,” Leo tweeted after Trump delivered his speech on Thursday (June 1). “Take action by supporting these organizations on the front lines of this fight: @IndivisibleTeam @StandUpAmerica @NRDC.”

Another major force in the world who is taking action following Trump‘s decision is Tesla founder Elon Musk, who had been serving on presidential councils. He announced that he will be stepping down from Trump‘s advisory council due to this decision. Disney CEO Bob Iger also has stepped down from the council.

Make sure to watch Leo‘s speech at the signing of the Paris Agreement one year ago.

    If LEO and Elon are so concerned why don’t they give up their super yachts, private planes, limos and carpool like the rest of us?

    No matter what they do you’ll still criticize them. You can keep whining they still do more than you do for sure.

  • JanaHelen

    Thats all you have to say ? Lol Trump just put America on the same level as Syria and Nicaragua while every expert warned him not to pull out from the Agreement. Damn even China and North Korea are supportive o the Agreement Trump is the laughing stock of the world

  • Pat Cake

    JFC !!!!
    So glad we live in a country that will continue to rape and poison the earth because our leaders are too stupid to actually believe in science.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi ladies! Glad to see Leo calling out the idiot!!! Also, love that Elon is resigning from Trump’s council.
    Trump’s massive ego is the reason he pulled out. There is no way he would have stayed since he already told people he would pull the US out and that climate change is a hoax. He would have to admit he was wrong and god knows he refuses to do that. His ego has made the US look stupid and is going to ruin this planet.

  • Tara✨

    Unfortunately we all rape and poison our planet, not only USA. Only few European countries are really good with eco-friendly systems. People there see it as a lifestyle and rich people see nothing wrong in using public transport etc…

  • also…

    It’s ironic that the movie The Day After Tomorrow is on TV right now…
    That’s the worst possible reason to do something like that. Admitting that you are wrong or changed your mind regarding something so importantly wouldn’t hurt him at all.

  • Zzzzzz

    Hi! I’m not sure about that. He is surrounded by morons who think climate change is a hoax. Considering he hasn’t been able to keep any of his campaign promises so far, I think in his pea-brain he needed to keep this one.
    I agree with you – admitting you’re wrong takes a bigger person, which obviously, he isn’t :(

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Bob Iger from Disney is resigning too following Elon.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    That’s true.

  • Douglas from Brazil

    Trump will destroy America before 2020.

  • (S)

    Change very very uncomfortable change has to come forth before any true healing can begin. Humans have grown accustomed to living life in such a way that will remain toxic to this Planet. The push is coming and it’s going to hurt like hell…but a new younger generation will grow to not know our polluting ways and hopefully it’s not to late for them. Today is a sad day of probably many to come. Glad Leo spoke up for all of us who care and want the painful but necessary change…me included.

    My dad went with my uncle to a bar in Beverly Hills to watch the basketball game and he’s watching the game with Leonardo DiCaprio. Like wtf

  • Surfgirl

    I would hope she isn’t that stupid

  • also…

    I hope he isn’t that stupid! But then again he started dating sloppy bun so he is that stupid. 😏
    She was in LA a couple of days ago and Rihanna is also there. LA full of his exes.

  • Surfgirl

    Yeah he should just get back to work

  • also…

    ASAP!

  • Melvin T Pelvis

    DiCaprio probably has the daily carbon footprint with his yacht and private plane and multiple homes and their controlled environments that is equivalent to 10,000 normal Americans

  • leoandtheblondes

    Interesting.

  • Melvin T Pelvis

    Americas emissions are probably the lowest on the planet for the amount of industry we have.
    We supply allied / friendly countries with the technology at a reduced price or probably free at times.
    And China just steals it. They have many factories and power plants that are clones of American plants made with plans gotten from espionage

    When the rest of the world has emissions as low as ours then it will be time to revisit this.

    The rest of the world wants us to develop technology to lower our already lowest emissions and then gift them with the technology after our taxpayers pay for research and development.

  • Narima

    Leo has to Boost his posts on facebook .
    Sponsored posts are the best because facebook doesn’t make his posts reach out to his 17 million followers!!

  • persononhere

    isn’t this the guy who took a private plane to get an environmental award for himself? hypocrite

  • also…

    I’m sure he still does most for the cause than you do.

  • Narima

    everyone is upset now …. we don’t care if he is hypocrite or not !!

  • Stephanie

    Sigh…Poor thing, poor, POOR, thing. There are two things exes should never do: re-follow their ex on social media and keep trying to show up to places that their ex will be at: this IS Toni in this season. Clearly, there’s a huge part of her (after all this time) that still hasn’t gotten over Dicaprio and feels she can somehow “sidebar reconnect” her way back into his life. Too bad. This looks utterly anxious and embarrassing. And it’s NOT going to happen. But, she will silently try (as Agdal will in a minute likewise)…as she is now. Unfortunately, as an definite obvious, Toni’s sidebar try WILL be a hard fail. This is nothing to worry about.

    Why these young girls have convinced themselves that hooking back up with men who treated them poorly will be better a second round, is beyond silly.

  • Fangirl

    Toni was following Leo back in 2014. I didn’t know she unfollowed him.

  • Fred alonso

    Leo gave up his yaucht

  • Tara✨

    He just spent a week on a HUGE yacht with hookers. I don’t know what the hell he is thinking about himself.

  • Tara✨

    No, he doesn’t.

  • Tara✨

    All gays. Jesus.

  • Tara✨

    Probably even more than 10,000. I hope he just stfu about environmental but he doesn’t have other subjects for PR. Only models and this.

  • Tara✨

    So Tony resigned 1 year contract because no other model wants to be put into this stinky shit? Haha

  • Tara✨

    Dude, use your logic not the stupid emotions. Yacht-grandpa Leo is a gay. He needs some hype and cover every year. Simple. Simple.

    Gisele follows Leo too and likes his tweets. Judging by the pics of their talking in Cannes, it’s possible Leo and Toni have gotten to a place where they can be friends. Doesn’t mean there are romantic overtures involved, adults can be friendly too, even exes, dunno why it’s a big deal.

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Well said. I have a few Lagosian friends and can tell you the heat in parts of Western Africa now hits the 50s!!!

  • Surfgirl
  • Learnabout Papercups

    Now leo can fly his private plane to his mega-yacht and feel good about how much he cares about the environment.

  • JanaHelen

    The US is the second largest contributor to global warming. Clearly you don’t care about facts just like the president, his administration and his supporters. The consequences of the decision to withdraw from the Agreement will affect you too. You may choose to live in a bubble but the US as a country doesn’t. It’s part of the world. Thats my two cents, it’s pointless to argue with someone who chooses ignorance over common sense.

  • also…

    But she just started following him now? After the run-in in Cannes?

  • pppf

    I don’t know how he would know, or really even
    care, he has millions of followers. But then again the models he was toting around from Cannes to Monaco were kind of blah. Maybe Toni isn’t looking that bad. Still not expecting a sequel to this relationship, but you never know with Leo.

  • leoandtheblondes

    It’s awesome that Leo has a diverse group of friends. I just wish it wasn’t the colorstruck gang, lol. These dudes discriminate against dark skin black women, who ironically look like their mothers. The self-hatred is real.

  • Tara✨

    The most funny part is all of his “diverse” friends are rumored gays, just like Leo.

  • Melvin T Pelvis

    Provide links. There is no way we’re above China, India or any other non western nation. Per land area and capita. Back in the 70′s this may have been true. Right now we have the strictest emission laws and guidelines.

  • Neon

    Sounds like a rape scene, just saying.

    Hi ladies! To all the haters! If you want to slam Leo, at least get your facts straight! Leo DOES NOT OWN a jet or a yacht. Does he rent them- yes! Own them – NO!!! SMH – lol!
