DiCaprio: Climate Change Deniers Shouldn't Be Allowed to Hold Public Office
Leonardo DiCaprio joined President Obama at the White House earlier this week to call for "urgent action" to combat climate change.
"We must empower leaders who not only believe in climate change but are willing to do something about it," DiCaprio told a crowd gathered on the White House South Lawn for the "South by South Lawn" festival.
The Oscar winner, who supports Hillary Clinton, said the scientific consensus about the dangers of climate change is in, and "the argument is now over."
"If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts or in science or empirical truths. And therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office."
