Leonardo DiCaprio has a message for world leaders..

llywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio has been working towards the cause of environment and he recently urged world leaders signing the Paris climate deal to deliver on their commitments to cut greenhouse gases, telling them: "The world is now watching," say reports. "You will either be lauded by future generations or vilified by them," DiCaprio was quoted as saying at the UN ceremony where 171 nations lined up to sign the landmark accord.

"We can congratulate each other today, but it will mean absolutely nothing if you return to your countries and fail to push beyond the promises of this historic agreement. Now is the time for bold, unprecedented action," he was quoted as saying in a report in The actor reportedly spoke in his role as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's "messenger of peace with a special focus on climate change."

The actor returned to the United Nations after delivering a much-watched address to world leaders during a UN climate summit in September that set the tone for the Paris accord, states the report. DiCaprio reportedly also said that the record turnout at the signing ceremony was a sign of hope, but he argued that sticking to the Paris agreement would not be enough to confront climate change.

 "An upheaval, a massive change is required right now, one that leads to a new collective conscience. Our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground, where they belong. Look at the delegates around you. It is time to ask each other what side of history will you be on. After 21 years of debates and conferences, it is time to declare no more talk, no more excuses, no more 10-year studies, no more allowing the fossil fuel companies to manipulate and dictate the science and policies that affect our future," Leonardo was quoted as saying in the report.
