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.
