On his Oscar acceptance speech

Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.

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.

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

In a tweet

It's been a big year for #LGBT issues - I'm very proud to be at #GLAADAwards tonight to support their important work.

In an interview with Rolling Stone

There’s some insane statistic that 70 percent of people believe in angels. I’m not an atheist, I’m agnostic. What I honestly think about is the planet, not my specific spiritual soul floating around. I know that sounds slightly eco-boy, but I think about the idea that there’s going to be a mass extinction, and then something else is going to evolve.

Encourages Voting

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.
