Watch 2004 interview: DiCaprio sees former Vice President Al Gore as a father figure and the greatest influence on him when it came to global warming
DiCaprio: “I actually got to meet Al Gore, who — I asked him what was the, you know, the most important environmental issue in the world, and he, without hesitation, said ‘global warming’ and literally took me, you know, like a child and wrote out a chart and explained what global warming was and how, um, basically because of, you know, carbon emissions in our atmosphere, we’re going to, you know, change our climate forever.” - Interview at 42:50 min. with Charlie Rose on PBS in a 2004.

In 2007, Former Vice President Al Gore appeared at the academy award 79th ceremonies in Hollywood with fellow climate activist Leonardo DiCaprio.
But just before they walked on stage, the Oscar ceremony was touting the greening of the ceremony and how ordinary Americans can lower their impact on the planet and global warming.
Columnist Charles Krauthammer writing in Time Mag (On March 16, 2007) said his personal favorite was: “Ride mass transit.” On screen text or VO – “This to a conclave of Hollywood plutocrats who have not seen the inside of a subway since the moon landing and for whom mass transit means a stretch limo seating no fewer than 10.”
(Cimate Depot asks: Ride mass transit? This brings up an obvious question, when was the last time Gore or DiCaprio rode a city bus?)
Watch Now: Morano on Canadian TV about DiCaprio’s new video claiming CO2 is ‘poison’: ‘He’s bastardized the science’ – ‘Humans exhale CO2 at 40,000 ppm in our breath’
Climate Depot’s Morano on Sun News with Ezra Levant’s ‘The Source’ on Leonardo DiCaprio:
Morano: ‘This is someone who does nothing but carbon dioxide belches. He’s perverting the language. we are talking about carbon dioxide. We are carbon based as humans. We inhale oxygen and we exhale carbon dioxide at 40,000 ppm in our breath. So if CO2 is poison, then human beings are nothing but poison machines.
‘Carbon dioxide is a trace essential gas in the atmosphere that has quite literally been greening the planet earth as it rises. DiCaprio wants to ‘keep carbon in the ground’ He cannot even keep himself on the ground, he takes private jets.’
