Leonardo DiCaprio Met Trump But Could Not Convince Him
Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio who is also famous for the contributions he make for saving the environment. Leo is an environmentalist and in 1988 he created the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation. He takes full advantage of his star power by bringing attention to the important causes he supports. With a net worth of $245 million, he's donated his money to many environmentally-conscious causes.
In his Oscar accepting speech he became successful in drawing everybody's attention on environment by saying "Climate change is real, it is happening right now." On Wednesday Leonardo and his foundation's head, Terry Tamminen met the president-elect of USA Donald Trump. The purpose behind this meeting was to share some views with Trump regarding climate change. Terry said "We presented the President-elect and his advisors with a framework ... that details how to unleash a major economic revival across the United States that is centered on investments in sustainable infrastructure"
he continued "Our conversation focused on how to create millions of secure, American jobs in the construction and operation of commercial and residential clean, renewable energy generation." The meeting was held at the Trump Tower. Scott Pruitt who is the attorney general of Oklahoma as the next EPA administrator was chosen by Donald Trump. He is a sceptic of climate science. He once said Scientists continue to disagree about the degree and extent of global warming and its connection to the actions of mankind."
It seems like Donald Trump and his chosen ones do not care much about the environment and even after meeting with people like Leonardo DiCaprio he does not seem to be convinced. When Pruitt got nominated, the president of Earthjustice said that every American should be appalled by his nomination. "The head of the Environmental Protection Agency should be making sure that our air is clean to breathe and our water is safe to drink, not working to make sure polluters make more money," he said.
