Friday, Hollywood icon Leonardo DiCaprio shared a photo with 16 year old Climate activist Greta Thunberg.
Leonardo shared his admiration for the teen and wrote:
There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time.
History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over.
It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds. It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet. #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike @fridaysforfuture
Greta Thunberg was also praised by talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who had her on her show and tweeted:
