Leonardo DiCaprio’s awareness post on Amazon Rainforest fires did not impress Lindsay Lohan much. Leo, who is always seen active in the talks to environmental, climate change judging by his posts took to Instagram once again to draw awareness about the Amazon Rainforest fires that has reportedly been burning for over two weeks now.
Sharing a pic showing thick smoke rising up from canopy of trees, the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood star wrote, ‘Terrifying to think that the Amazon is the largest rainforest on the planet, creating 20 percent of the earth’s oxygen, basically the lungs of the world, has been on fire, burning for the last 16 days running, with literally NO media coverage whatsoever! Why?’
Leo’s persuasion for the media to start talking about the rainforest fires obviously did not persuade Lohan enough. Commenting on his post, Lohan, throwing a huge shade wrote, ‘How can we fix it? Actions speak louder than words my friend’.
Interestingly enough, after Lindsay’s comment, Leo posted another post with a do-to list for the catastrophe.

#Regram #RG @rainforestalliance: The lungs of the Earth are in flames. ðŸ”¥ The Brazilian Amazon—home to 1 million Indigenous people and 3 million species—has been burning for more than two weeks straight. There have been 74,000 fires in the Brazilian Amazon since the beginning of this year—a staggering 84% increase over the same period last year (National Institute for Space Research, Brazil). Scientists and conservationists attribute the accelerating deforestation to President Jair Bolsonaro, who issued an open invitation to loggers and farmers to clear the land after taking office in January.âÂ£ âÂ£ The largest rainforest in the world is a critical piece of the global climate solution. Without the Amazon, we cannot keep the Earth’s warming in check. âÂ£ âÂ£ The Amazon needs more than our prayers. So what can YOU do?âÂ£ âÂ£ âœ” As an emergency response, donate to frontline Amazon groups working to defend the forest. âÂ£ âœ” Consider becoming a regular supporter of the Rainforest Alliance’s community forestry initiatives across the world’s most vulnerable tropical forests, including the Amazon; this approach is by far the most effective defense against deforestation and natural forest fires, but it requires deep, long-term collaboration between the communities and the public and private sectors. âœ” Stay on top of this story and keep sharing posts, tagging news agencies and influencers. âÂ£ âœ” Be a conscious consumer, taking care to support companies committed to responsible supply chains.âÂ£ Eliminate or reduce consumption of beef; cattle ranching is one of the primary drivers of Amazon deforestation. âœ” When election time comes, VOTE for leaders who understand the urgency of our climate crisis and are willing to take bold action—including strong governance and forward-thinking policy.âÂ£ âÂ£ #RainforestAlliance #SaveTheAmazon #PrayForAmazonia #AmazonRainforest #ActOnClimate #ForestsResist #ClimateCrisis ðŸ“¸: @mohsinkazmitakespictures / Windy.com
