“Climate change is real. It is happening right now, it is the most urgent threat facing our entire species,” declared Oscar winning movie actor, Leonardo DiCaprio, during his Oscar acceptance speech.
Yeah, right. Climate change caused by human activity is the most urgent threat facing our entire species right now, but, of course, that doesn’t stop Leo from spending lavishly on private yacht and jet travel for himself all the time to classy destinations all over the world. This guy is determined to drastically reduce your carbon footprint on the planet – he wants you to sacrifice -- but he has no such intention when it comes to his own burning up of vast quantities of fossil fuels.
His conduct provides solid proof that climate change hypocrisy is real.
Leo was partying big time in the south of France at the Cannes Film Festival recently with model Georgia Fowler at the posh club Gotha. Then he flew to New York City on a private jet so he could accept, of all things, an environmental award at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball at Chelsea Piers where he was honored by the clean-water advocacy group and fellow movie actor, Robert De Niro.
With his environmental award in hand, Leo immediately hopped aboard another jet which flew him straight back to France, thereby expanding his own carbon footprint by an unnecessary 8,000 extra miles so he could hobnob with his peers, give a speech and attend another glitzy gala left-wing oriented fund raiser event.
All of this has prompted Environmental analyst Robert Rapier, to observe that Leo’s movie-star lifestyle “diminishes his moral authority to lecture others on reducing their own carbon emissions… [He] demonstrates exactly why our consumption of fossil fuels continues to grow. It’s because everyone loves the combination of cost and convenience they offer. Alternatives usually require sacrifice of one form or another… Everybody says, ‘I’ve got a good reason for consuming what I consume’. . . It’s the exact same rationalization for billions of people.”
Yes, even the most ardent climate change hysteria adherents are quick to admit that climate change hypocrisy is real.
