Davos, Switzerland • Fresh off his Golden Globe win, Leonardo DiCaprio drew ooohs, ahhs and smiles from a crowd as he was honored for his work against the climate crisis at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
Then he ripped into Big Oil.
The Hollywood star of "The Revenant" traded the North American snows for white Alpine slopes at a ceremony Tuesday where he announced his foundation was donating another $15 million to environmental projects, and pleaded with business leaders and other notables on hand to help battle climate change.
"We simply cannot allow the corporate greed of the coal, oil and gas industries to determine the future of humanity," DiCaprio said to polite applause. "Those entities with a financial interest in preserving this destructive system have denied and even covered up the evidence of our changing climate."
