Before The Flood – Fisher Stevens’ latest documentary (formerly titled The Turning Point) chronicles Leonardo DiCaprio’s campaign to raise global awareness about the dangers of climate change in his role as a UN Ambassador of Peace.
Before The Flood Documentary, a feature length collaboration between Leonardo DiCaprio and National Geographic (with Martin Scorsese as executive producer), was just released for free on YouTube – is the next Inconvenient Truth that hopes to make you care about and act on climate change.
It covers the most significant economic, political and technological trends as well as the most recent scientific findings. From the toxic tar sands of Alberta to the frequently flooded streets of Miami Beach, from the smog-choked avenues of Beijing to the incinerated forests of Indonesia, DiCaprio meets with scientists, politicians, and activists to face the facts: natural disasters are becoming more frequent, wildlife is vanishing, communities are being destroyed. What is to be done?
At movie’s website, you can find a comprehensive section covering diverse solutions to the different problems contributing to climate change, backed by academic research and pilot programs. From reforestation, renewable energy and urban resiliency, to scaling technological innovations, climate education and regional leadership.

Before The Flood | THE SOLUTIONS
The good news is that climate change can be solved today with readily available technologies and sustainability measures. It will take significant investments on the part of governments and businesses, but that investment will be a small fraction of the price we would have to pay for increasing natural disasters and other climate impacts. New research has shown that using currently available technologies, we can meet all of our energy needs for heating, electricity, and transportation through by mid-century. We can get on track by 2020, when the Paris Agreements enters into force by reducing pollution through a price on carbon and protecting our forest and ocean ecosystems.
