Snow might not be as hard to come by as Leonardo DiCaprio suggested it was during his Oscar acceptance speech Sunday night (Feb. 28), but climate trends do suggest that the actor is onto something, experts said.
Moments after receiving the Oscar for best actor, DiCaprio reminded Hollywood, and the world, that “climate change is real” and that it affected the filming of his award-winning 2015 movie, “The Revenant.”
“Making ‘The Revenant’ was about man’s relationship to the natural world,” DiCaprio said at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles. “A world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow.”
