  2. THE SPEECH OF LEONARDO DI CAPRIO :

    He starts his speech with formal salutations to Mr. Secretary General and the foreigns countries’ representatives.
    He claims to be a ”normal person”, ”one of the 4 thousands people who march (…) in the streets of New York” he says, who are concerned by the global warming.
    He follows with a sentence which I find really interesting : ”I am an actor, I play ficticious characters who solve ficticious problems, and I feel like the World is looking at the Environment Crisis the same way” (or something like that). Shortly, he means that people are closing their eyes in front of reality/global warming like if it would make the problem disappear.
