If there is one piece of media I would urge everyone to watch in order to realise the dangers of climate change it would be “Before the flood” by National Geographic. Leonardo DiCaprio travels the world and investigates the effects climate change is having on the planet and if you didn’t fully care yet, this documentary will definitely convince you action has to be taken today. It was what inspired me to start this blog.
Frustratingly, however, DiCaprio’s integrity has been called into question due to the fact that he uses private jets to travel the world which obviously have a much higher CO2 output compared to commercial aircraft. This has inevitably been highlighted by his opposition and has harmed his reputation.
His personal life shouldn’t take away from the validity of his message, however, and it is important that as many people as possible hear what he has to say.
So, if you haven’t already, I strongly suggest you give it a watch and share it with your friends and family. The message needs to be spread.
