Leonardo DiCaprio Checks Out Tesla’s Gigafactory With Elon Musk

Hollywood actor and avid environmentalist Leonardo DiCaprio recently enjoyed a private tour of Tesla’s gigafactory with company founder Elon Musk.

The short segment featured below has been pulled from DiCaprio’s upcoming National Geographic documentary, ‘Before The Flood’, set to air globally on October 30 in 45 different languages.

While visiting the Tesla gigafactory, DiCaprio had the opportunity to hear about Musk’s ambitions for the future and his belief that solar energy and batteries are the future of sustainable energy. Musk also thinks solar energy could prove immensely beneficial for developing countries and remote villages, foregoing the need to construct electricity plants and power grids.

Tesla’s chief executive also says that it would take 100 gigafactories to power the entire world with sustainable energy.

The company’s lithium-ion gigafactory may be impressive as is, but it is far from complete. In fact, only 31 per cent of the facility is scheduled to be complete by the second quarter of 2017.

When it is fully operational, it will be one of the largest buildings ever constructed and has the potential to produce 150 gigawatt hours of batteries.

    It’s difficult to find the words… One semi talented actor who lectures the rest of us about made up global warming while spanning the globe in mega yachts and private planes with his pals and supermodels. The other a talented lobbyist who makes toys for rich people and makes grand, utterly stupid pronouncements like *we’re going to put 1M people on Mars in 10 years*.

    It’s not humanly possible for me to have less respect for such people…

    Elon Musk is a freakazoid. He’s wearing lipstick and makeup. The dude was virtually bald in his early 20’s (check out youtube of him from his 20’s). I knows he’s worth billions but still with all the money in the world I can’t take that clown seriously. He’s just a pure weirdo with way too much cosmetic surgery done including full on hair plugs.
