LEONARDO DICAPRIO ENDORSES EARTHSMARTCARS
DiCaprio discussed his plans to purchase a hybrid
gasoline-electric car in the coming year, and the many benefits of clean-car
technologies. Earth Day Network, the international organization
coordinating Earth Day 2000 events worldwide, announced that actor Leonardo
DiCaprio will serve as chairman of Earth Day 2000 and will host Earth Day 2000
festivities in April in Washington, D.C. The webcast announcement and a
transcript of the chat with DiCaprio are available at the Earth Day Network
In the 11/17/99 webcast on Earth Day Network's website,
DiCaprio talked to Earth Day Network chair Denis Hayes and NRDC president John
Adams about plans for Earth Day 2000 and ways people around the world can
participate. In the webcast, and in a chat featured on Yahoo! following it,
DiCaprio discussed Earth Day's focus on the problem of global warming, and on
addressing the problem with clean, renewable energy solutions.
Hopefully Leonardo will grant Electrifying Times an exclusive
interview when he makes his purchase.
