Environmental hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio’s superyacht has huge carbon footprint

That preachy, sanctimonious environmentalist is at it again, oblivious to the irony of him vacationing on a gas-guzzling, CO2 spewing, 450 ft. superyacht, anchored off the Mediterranean coast of France for the annual debauchery known as the Cannes Film Festival.

Here’s Leonardo DiCaprio is his off-camera scruffy Howard Hughes mode:

Heather Waugh reports for the Daily Mail, May 21, 2014, that the superyacht Rising Sun was custom built in 2004 by Lurssen Yachts and owned by David Geffen, the openly homosexual co-founder of Dreamworks Studio (with director Steven Spielberg), whom former Hollywood powerhouse Michael Ovitz calls the leader of Hollywood’s Gay Mafia. (See “The Gay Mafia and America’s aggressive homosexual agenda“)

The superyacht reportedly cost $200 million to build and is the 11th largest yacht in the world. It offers accommodation for up to 16 guests, a cinema, a wine cellar and is capable of carrying up to 45 crew members on board. It also boasts a basketball court which can be transformed into a helipad if necessary.

So how much of a carbon footprint does Rising Sun make?

In 2014, Leo borrowed another super yacht, the 482-ft. Topaz, to watch the World Cup in Brazil and party in style.

According to Monalisa Gangopadhyay of Liberty Voice, the $680 million Topaz is the 5th largest super yacht in the world, and belongs to billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates. The super yacht is replete with luxurious features that include a top deck jacuzzi, opulent staterooms, a swimming pool, gym, movie theater, a large conference room, and two helipads.

Gangopadhyay notes:

But all these luxuries come at an environmental cost. A super yacht like the Topaz [and Rising Sun] can burn thousands of liters of marine diesel every hour as it cuts an impressive swatch through the ocean waters, leaving behind trails of smoke and tones of carbon dioxide. Additionally, such crafts can use up to 1000 liters a day or more just for its air-conditioning and electrical systems, according to Yacht Carbon Offset, a company that provides carbon offsetting for its seafaring clients.

This is the same Leonardo DiCaprio whom another hypocrite, tax-dodger Secretary of State John Kerry, had invited to talk about conservation at the State Department’s Our Ocean conference on June 17, 2014.

Kerry, who at age 70 went under the knife for major cosmetic surgery, and flicks his tongue like a snake, lauded DiCaprio for having demonstrated continued dedication towards protecting the world’s oceans.

  1. Another example why the Hollywood kooks are no longer relevant. They lie out of their rears and are the world’s biggest hypocrites.
    Be gone Leonardo, be gone.

  2. As a friend of mine said one time about their son. He was all for this environmental stuff until he went to one of their meetings. They all parked their Land Rovers and Lincoln Navigators several blocks from the meeting and then walked to the meeting. After the meeting they all walked back to their gas-guzzlers and went home. That was the last time for him. I think it was Leona Helmsley that said; “only the little people pay taxes!” As long as we have those who feel entitled we will have this type of two-faced, hypocrite.

  3. DeCaprio is just another hedonistic pig at the trough. Like Al Gore. A lying, hypocrite spawned by Hollywood’s culture of pseudo importance. Avoid going to see his films or purchasing them.

    And the puzzling thing is that Leonardo DiCaprio doesn’t even see what’s wrong about this.
