Just as Donald Trump marked his 100 days in the White House by admitting how he thought being President "would be easier," thousands of people took to the streets to march for climate change all over the country.

In Washington D.C. in particular, demonstrators came out in hordes to demand environmental action and to oppose the President's baffling rejection of basic science — a confused opinion that has seen him roll back restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, amongst other damaging things.

And unsurprisingly, joining the masses in Washington over the weekend was our very own Leonardo DiCaprio, who rocked up in his adorable newsboy cap holding a "Climate Change Is Real" sign written on the back of a folder. That's because he's clearly a huge fan of recycling and — like the majority of sane and rational people — he listens to environmental experts and knows that climate change isn't a hoax.

As we all know, this isn't the first time that Leo has proven to be a wonderful human being or a much-needed voice of reason when it comes to the environment. For decades, he has been an enthusiastic climate change activist with a mission to educate and inspire millions of people around the world to support the cause. The man is so dedicated in fact, that he even used his 2016 Oscars acceptance speech for The Revenant to reiterate the threat of global warming. He famously said:

"Climate change is real. It is happening right now. It’s the most urgent threat facing our entire species and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating. We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this. For our children’s children, and for those people out there whose voices have been drowned out by the politics of greed. Let us not take this planet for granted."

And last year — almost a decade since his documentary The 11th Hour rattled our conscience — he brought environmental awareness to us once more with Before the Flood. Here's the trailer for the frightening exposé:

We love you Leo, keep it up!
