The Revenant is coming soon to our theatres. The movie has been announced to be released on January 7th in our country. I’m looking forward to seeing it. Judging from the trailer and early reviews it’s going to be great, different to anything we’ve seen before.
In The Revenant, Leonardo DiCaprio stars as legendary Hugh Glass, fur trapper and frontiersman. Don’t get me wrong. I love Leo but my headline is not about his appearance. The actor is also an ardent environmentalist. While doing this film, he was doing a documentary on climate change.
In his latest interview on Buro247.ru, Leonardo DiCaprio says:
“I would really love it, if this Paris climate conference finally saw countries come together to curb this insanity that is going on with our temperatures. This year we had the hottest October and July in recorded history and the hottest year in recorded history. It seems like insanity and it’s happening so much faster than scientific projections ever estimated. There are extreme weather patterns all over the world and it’s actually terrifying.”
Everyone knows that Russia is a country of snow, harsh winters and severe frosts. It’s generally believed that we have enough snow to ensure continuous snow supply to the rest of the world. But not everybody knows that the hot breath of global warming has touched us too.
According to the Russian weather service, the temperature in Moscow on December 21 reached 9 degrees Celsius. That’s 15 degrees above normal for this time of year.
I’m looking forward to seeing this movie not only because of Leo’s incredible acting skills. Also I will be able to look at snow. A lot of snow.
