We need to change our thinking and our sense of urgency - Interview: Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio may be one of the world’s top movie stars, but he would rather be defined and respected more for his work as a committed environmentalist. Over the years, he has personally funded as well as helped to raise tens of millions of dollars for a variety of green-related causes. He believes that his greatest legacy will be the progress he has helped make toward safeguarding the planet against the ravages of global warming, pollution, and species protection. Declares DiCaprio: “I’m equally as passionate about the environment as I am as an artist. As a teenager, I was interested in becoming a biologist or working in the environmental sciences.”
