When asked if he would run for office.

I don’t know about that. I’ve been making this documentary on climate change for the last two years. If there was anything that I felt that I could do that would really contribute to what I think is the most important issue in human history – climate change – then I would love to take a higher position with it. But that doesn’t necessarily mean political office. I think that a lot of the change needs to come from communal efforts, from groups and people who are trying to rattle the system. I think change is going to have to come from outside. You can’t depend on politicians to make the right decisions.’

At SXSL 2016, in a conversation with Barack Obama about climate change.

We [America] need to set the example for the rest of the world to follow [...] [...] some companies are starting to realize that addressing the climate change issue can actually spur economic activities.

In a conversation with President Barack Obama and leading climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe at the South by South Lawn festival at the White House

I'm so very honored to be on stage with one of those leaders, a President who has done more to create solutions for the climate crisis than any other in history, President Barack Obama.

When asked about the bleak worldview of "The Revenant".

That’s an interesting question for me as an environmentalist. You look back at that time [in ‘The Revenant’], and this surge west – extracting resources from nature, killing off indigenous Native American tribes, cutting down the trees and digging for oil. And you think: Oh my God, look how brutal we were. But I wonder how people are going to look back at this time period now. We are destroying nature and killing species at a rate that is unprecedented. I just came back from Paris [and the climate change talks]. If we don’t have a resolution coming out of Paris, we are destined for an incredibly bleak, dark future.

During a speech at the United Nations Climate Summit.

This disaster has grown beyond the choices that individuals make. This is now about our industries, and governments, around the world taking decisive, large scale action. Now must be our moment for action.

The good news is that renewable energy is not only achievable but good economic policy.

We need to put a price tag on carbon emissions, and eliminate government subsidies for all oil, coal, and gas companies.

Right now, we have a huge election coming up in the United States, a pivotal point in American history. Obviously, I've been very involved with the environmental moment, and one of the candidates have a better environmental policy in my opinion. That's on a personal note. But for me, the big thing is to get the youth vote out there. I've been doing a lot of work to galvanize and energize the young people out there who really in the last two elections didn't show up in the way they should've. In the last election, over 70% of old people went to volte, and only 40% of registered young people went to vote. So, we need to get a real representation of our country by the people who are going to be affected by the policies the next president puts in effect in the next 50 years. And until we get there, we won't get a real representation of what the country wants.
