Leonardo DiCaprio: Climate change deniers ‘should not be allowed to hold public office’
Actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio said Monday that those who don’t believe in climate change shouldn’t be permitted to hold public office.
During remarks about his new documentary “Before the Flood” at the White House’s South by South Lawn event celebrating and encouraging innovation, DiCaprio said, “We must empower leaders who not only believe in climate change but are willing to do something about it.”
“The scientific consensus is in and the argument is now over,” DiCaprio said. “If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts or in science or empirical truths and, therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office.”
Some interpreted his remarks as a swipe against Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who has called climate change a “hoax.”
