Di Caprio follows Gore a Decade On

As this article in Resilience announces, today is the release of Leonardo di Caprio’s new film:

Before the Flood, a new feature-length documentary presented and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. The Oscar-winning actor and environmentalist has spent the past three years asking a wide variety of people around the world about climate change. His collection of interviews in the film – ranging from Barack Obama and the Pope through to Elon Musk and Piers Sellars – cover the science, impacts, vested interests, politics and possible solutions.

The resilience article highlights seven key scenes of the film and provides back-up video footage relating to the seven key persons featured in these segments. Ten years on from Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth it is interesting to gauge what progress has been made in the conflict between science and the vested interests of those wishing to suppress or distort what is happening to the atmosphere of Spaceship Earth.

Here is the full film (1 hr 35 mins)

And here is a critical review by Rob Hopkins from the Resilience website. Di Caprio is a member of the 1% mega-rich and has a mega-rich lifestyle despite his passion about climate change. He fails to deal adequately in the film with the fundamental issue of gross inequality and the culpability of the rich countries.
