Actor Leonardo DiCaprio meets with scientists, activists and world leaders to discuss the dangers of climate change and possible solutions.
There have been already many global warming warning signals throughout the past couple of decades. Many have raised their voice with the purpose to shed light on one of the greatest challenges of the future on our planet.
In August 2015, The Rolling Stones have made it official with their publication, that humanity have reached the point of no return. That the catastrophic scenarios of global warming caused by human impact on the planet are already happening and there is no going back.
You can perceive Leonardo’s latest movie as another kind of global warming warning signal, but this time, it all comes packed bit differently. Leonardo brings a very distinct voice and call to action, and his intentions look much honorable.
If you are still not aware of the gravity of the climate change global challenge, then Before the Flood will certainly move you and provide you with much the needed information. It’s an in-depth look at how climate change directly affects the eco-system on the planet, and how it is the number one cause for demise of endangered species and native communities across the planet. Much more than that it is a level up towards creating the world consciousness on one of the most serious problems in history of humanity.
You may wonder why Leonardo DiCaprio rounds about this topic, but it was in 2014 when Ban Ki-moon endorsed him as the UN messanger of Peace with a specific focus on Climate Change. This came after Leonrdo delivered some quite powerful messages regarding environment protection and against nature and indiginious people degradation.
Hence, his message comes really at the breaking point, or the point of no return. Science is clear, very clear when it comes down to climate change, and more than that, the future is quite anxious at this point, uncertain and unpredictable.
During his journey in the movie, Leonardo travels around the world with the purpose to examine firsthand the effects of climate change, and he also speaks with eminent public figures like President Barack Obama, tech innovator Elon Mask and Pope Francis.
Without further ado, watch Before the Flood and join Leonardo DiCaprio as he explores the topic of climate change and unravels to you what must be done today in order we still have a habitable planet tomorrow.
