Like most famous globe-trotting celebrities, Canadian rocker Neil Young blasts others for contributing to man-made global warming while spewing more carbon emissions in a year than you and I ever will in our lifetimes.
Young lost his Malibu home in the Woosley fire and, of course, blamed President Trump. From MSN:
“Music icon Neil Young lost his home in the Woolsey fire Sunday and came down hard on President Trump for denying the devastating effects of climate change.
“California is vulnerable — not because of poor forest management as DT (our so-called president) would have us think,” Young posted on his website. “As a matter of fact this is not a forest fire that rages on as I write this. We are vulnerable because of Climate Change; the extreme weather events and our extended drought is part of it.“
Young goes on to call Trump a “Denier,” saying he hopes the new Congress can bring a “reckoning” to this “this unfit leader” who he said doesn’t understand the seriousness of climate change.
“California is a paradise for us all. A gift,” Young wrote, adding that humans are defenseless against “Mother Nature’s wrath.”
“Fire fighters have never seen anything like this in their lives,” Young wrote. “I have heard that said countless times in the past two days, and I have lost my home before to a California fire, now another.
“Imagine a leader who defies science, saying these solutions shouldn’t be part of his decision-making on our behalf,” he continued. “Imagine a leader who cares more for his own, convenient opinion then he does for the people he leaves. Imagine an unfit leader. Now imagine a fit one.”
Young shared the Malibu home with his wife of three months, actress/director Daryl Hannah. He also owns a ranch in the Santa Cruz Mountains, south of San Francisco.
The Malibu homes of director Scott Derrickson and Robin Thicke were also destroyed in the blaze.
The 83,275-acre fire near the border of Ventura and Los Angeles counties, which has destroyed 177 structures and prompted the evacuation of 265,000 residents. According to officials, the fires were only 10 percent contained as of Sunday night.”

While his Malibu home was destroyed, I’m sure Young will survive in one of his other homes. From what I was able to find he has a home in Redwood, California. No doubt he has a home in his home country of Canada.
He also flies (private jets) around the world to perform concerts. According to a report by Calgary Herald in 2014, Young talks a good talk about climate change while contributing to the problem. From their report:
“While Neil Young spoke to a Calgary news conference at the Jack Singer Concert Hall prior to his Sunday night show, five rock star-style motorhomes were left running outside, spewing fumes into the Calgary air, even though they were mostly unoccupied.
Inside the concert hall, the 68-year-old rock ‘n’ roll legend was talking about the “elephant in the room,” which he later explained was man-made global warming. The only elephant I could see was his enormous carbon footprint and his even bigger hypocrisy between his walk and his talk.”
Typical Hollyweird HYPOCRITE.
