Leonardo DiCaprio Says He Witnessed Climate Change In Alberta First-Hand
Its not often you can see Climate change happen before your eyes, turns out celebrity's can't either.
While shooting the film "The Revenant," Leonardo DiCaprio says the film needed to ditch Alberta for Argentina to find the cold landscapes the shoot required.
The shoot required lots of snow, which was in such short supply during filming that the production had to bring in snow guns.
At the same time DiCaprio says, “We would come and there would be eight feet of snow, and then all of a sudden a warm gust of wind would come.”
Also known as Chinooks. Chinooks are a normal phenomenon in Alberta. Along the eastern slopes of the Rockies, the Chinook wind provides a welcome respite from the long winter chill. Few people spend very much time along the eastern slopes without experiencing these wonderful warm winds.
So no Leonardo DiCaprio didn't see climate change happen before his eyes, its just Winter in Canada.
