The Revenant star announced his foundation will be donating a $20 million grant to help combat climate change Tuesday evening during a speech at Yale University. He also reserved some harsh words for President Donald Trump and his administration’s position on climate change.
“We are proud to support the work of over 100 organizations at home and abroad,” the actor said. “These grantees are active on the ground, protecting our oceans, forests and endangered species for future generations – and tackling the urgent, existential challenges of climate change.”
“There exist today many proven technologies in renewable energy, clean transportation, and sustainable agriculture, that we can begin to build a brighter future for all of us,” DiCaprio added. “Our challenge is to find new ways to power our lives, employ millions of people and turn every individual into an advocate for clean air and drinkable water. We must demand that politicians accept climate science and make bold commitments before it is too late.”
Oscar award winner Leonardo DiCaprio said Tuesday that the recent spate of hurricanes is proof that the U.S. is harming itself by not taking climate change seriously.
The facts have been presented “time and time again, year after year, for decades” and “quite simply, we are knowingly doing this to ourselves, to our entire planet, and we’re risking our very future,” DiCaprio said in giving the closing address at the Yale Climate Conference hosted by former Secretary of State John Kerry.
He said Florida Gov. Rick Scott banned the use of the words “climate change” from state documents, but “unfortunately no governor is powerful enough to ban climate change, and today residents of his state are rebuilding from devastation that could’ve been significantly less if the state government was busy working for solutions rather than banning words.” He said the same is true for former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, now Trump’s energy secretary, who ignored climate change to see his state suffer from intense flooding.

As Titanic turns 20, Jack and Rose are reuniting for a good cause – this time on dry land.
A private dinner with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet is up for grabs at this year’s auction gala hosted by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
The annual event, hosted on July 26 in St. Tropez, France, is offering a lucky bidder the chance to have dinner with the friends and former Titanic costars sometime in October or November at a place of their choosing in New York City.
Proceeds from the gala and auction will support the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which since 2008 has made more than $80 million in grants to environmental causes.
DiCaprio and Winslet’s dinner will also benefit a GoFundMe campaign Winslet has been involved with that aims to help a young mother in the U.K. pay for cancer treatment. Winslet cofounded the Golden Hat Foundation, which benefits children with autism and their families, and also supports regional charities in the U.K. and individuals’ fundraising efforts for cancer treatment.
The typically star-studded event will feature a special performance by Lenny Kravitz. In addition, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo will be honored with the foundation’s “New World Leadership Award” for her “innovative approach to making Paris a model for sustainable urban living and design,” according to a statement from the gala.
Last year, the charity auction raised a record $45 million and featured guests such as Bono, Chris Rock, Mariah Carey, Tobey Maguire, Jonah Hill, Naomi Campbell, Bradley Cooper and Edward Norton.
