(leonardo dicaprio/actor) "there's still a dialogue going on in our country in which people are still denying man- made climate change. and as one of the scientists puts it in this film, very bluntly, it's like denying gravity at this stage. over 97% of the scientific community are saying this is real - we are doing this

(fisher stevens/director) "what we wanted to do was not totally freak people out but we wanted to shake them enough but we wanted to let them know that we can turn this around on time." "we need to take care of the planet. if we don't all the creatures who live on it, including us, will be history."
