“The melting of the world’s snow and ice has now triggered multiple climate tipping points, especially increasing levels of methane,” DiCaprio says in the trailer. “Scientists have discovered solutions giving us a chance at reversing climate change, but the clock is ticking.”
Set your HBO PVR for the new HBO documentary “Ice on Fire” on June 11, 2019. This story goes beyond the current climate crisis and presents cutting-edge solutions to the reduction of atmospheric carbon that could slow down global warming. Filming was conducted in Norway, Alaska, Iceland, Colorado, Switzerland, Costa Rica and Connecticut to gain first-hand accounts from both farmers, scientists and innovators.
Documentary filmmaking is only one part of the activism of DiCaprio. The actor founded The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation in 1998 after starring in the blockbuster hit “Titanic” by James Cameron with the mission to address some of the most pressing issues on the planet: global warming, wildlife conservation, and ocean preservation. The charity has donated more than $80 million in grants since its establishment.
