Actor Leonardo DiCaprio shares what he believes is the most pressing environmental issue of our time: global warming. And Leo’s definitely not aloneâ€”many scientists have been warning the public for years that the Earth is getting hotter. Some say that if drastic measures aren’t taken to stop it, global warming may cause catastrophic results for the billions of people living on our planet.
Leo says global warming is not only the number one issue affecting the environmentâ€”it’s one of the most important issues facing all of humanity. “It’s something that’s going to affect not only us, but our children and our grandchildrenâ€¦and generations to come,” says Leo.
This is a tough subject for adults and children to understand. Recently Authors Laurie David (Producer of Inconvenient Truth) and Cambria Gordon wrote a book called The Down To Earth Guide to Global Warming to help our children understand what we can do to protect our environment for our future generations. Inside the book, there are quotes from Jennifer Garner, Leonardo Di Caprio, Reggie Bush and many more about why we need to do something about global warming. Brad Whitford and Jane Kaczmarek have read it with their kids. It was also featured in the Wired Magazine Green home in Brentwood in the children’s bedroom.
