Leonardo DiCaprio, Chace Crawford and Justin Long are among the stars behind a new campaign driven by viral videos and social networking to lobby for an environmental bill in Washington.

The Natural Resource Defense Council Action Fund, of which DiCaprio is a trustee, has launched the This Is Our Moment effort urging Congress to pass the Clean Energy, Jobs and American Power Act.
