The water crisis of Chennai is something that has got governments, environmentalists and residents thinking. It has also caught the attention of Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio. The actor is a devoted environmentalist and has shared a picture of the water crisis on his Insta account. It shows women trying to draw water from a well. The picture reflects the desperate on-ground situation where the lakes have almost dried up. Now, it is only rainfall that can save the city. Other heads of state have also tweeted about it, saying how water conservation should be a priority for one and all.
The Hollywood star is one of the biggest celebrity advocates of the dire consequences of climate change. He has contributed close to 30 million for causes relating to wildlife and the environment. During his Oscar speech for Revenant, he spoke about how people should reject the politics of greed and stop procrastinating about climate change. He said, "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."
