Hollywood stars demand action on climate change

2021 Sep 24, 12:29, Washington

From Leonardo DiCaprio, Lady Gaga to Camila Cabello, over 60 musicians, actors, and artists have urged entertainment industry executives to ask US Congress to pass climate change legislation.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, several artists teamed up with the NRDC Action Fund to pen a letter to Warner Music Group CEO Lincoln Benet, Apple CEO Tim Cook, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, and others to lend their support to US President Joe Biden's infrastructure bills.

"Congress has a once-in-a-generation opportunity to invest in a clean, just, and equitable future for all by passing the robust climate action that President Biden called for in his Build Back Better agenda. As the top leaders of the entertainment industry -- one of the nation's most powerful and influential business sectors -- you are needed to lead our community's call for action and embrace this vision for a better world," the letter read.

Biden's Build Back Better agenda is contained in two bills, one a USD 1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure proposal and the other a USD 3.5 trillion packages that includes creating industrial policy to tackle climate change, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

"The entertainment community has a long, proud tradition of driving societal change. Our industry is already leading the charge toward more sustainable practices within our own businesses and productions. Now is the time to use your influence to shape our future," the statement added.

Celebrities Ellen DeGeneres, Selena Gomez, Jimmy Fallon, Joey King, Dua Lipa, Shawn Mendes, Sean Penn, and Kerry Washington have also signed the letter.
