On his trip to China, Leonardo Dicaprio was all filled with praise for the Asian country because of the tremendous steps they have taken on scaling back their greenhouse emissions.
‘As we all know, the United States and China are the two biggest contributors, and I think that China has made radical movements forward as far as alternative energy and ways to be sustainable,” he said at a news conference.
Leonardo who delivered a heartfelt Oscar acceptance speech last month when he addressed the biggest threat to mankind, referred to China as the hero of the environmental movement.
‘I really think that China can be the hero of the environmental movement, they can be the hero of the climate change movement,‘ he said.
‘They have an opportunity to change the world and I have all the confidence in the world that that is their intention.’
Leonardo is one of the favorite Hollywood stars in China mostly because of his role in Titanic and a few others that followed that. He is often called Xiao Li, or Little Lee, by Chinese.
