Leonardo DiCaprio denounces climate change deniers at Global Citizen Festival

Hey Leo: Give up your own self-interests of flying via private jets and yachting around the world. And give up your world press tours for the sake of movie profits.

All of you Hollyweirdos are HYPOCRITES.

From Hollywood Reporter: Over 60,000 people piled into New York’s Central Park on Saturday night for the 2019 Global Citizen Festival to not only see performances by the likes of Queen + Adam Lambert and Pharrell Williams, but also hear from stars and activists about Global Citizen’s movement to end extreme poverty by 2030 and achieve the sustainable goals set forth by the United Nations.

Leonardo DiCaprio, a staunch environmental activist, took the stage to condemn the politicians who “have failed to live up to the promises” of the Paris Agreement, along with those who have responded to the recent Global Climate Strike by criticizing its leader, 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

“Last Friday, young people led the world in strike. Millions of individuals did more than simply walk out of their schools and places of employment. They took a stand. They set an example of true leadership that our planet so desperately needs. These young people have said clearly, definitively and without fear, that the time for inaction is over,” said DiCaprio. “Yet, surprisingly, some have reacted to this movement with insulting tweets and negative talking points — individuals that seem to care more about profit and their own self-interests than about your own future. But we know that the climate youth movement is more important and crucial than at any time in human history.

The actor added that the scientific community has made this clear, “and unless you live in alternate reality, there is no more time for denial.”

Fellow actors Natalie Portman, Laverne Cox, Forest Whitaker and Kal Penn also highlighted other worthwhile causes. Dakota Johnson returned to the festival after sharing her phone number onstage last year, encouraging sexual assault survivors to call her and leave a voicemail telling their story.

“I received calls from six continents, 70 different countries, adding up to around 60 hours of real stories,” Johnson said. “These stories are from every age, and every gender, and 95 percent of them being women. The oldest called identified as 71, the youngest was 11.”

Hypocrites: Celebrities supporting global climate strike

Let’s take a look at how these celebrities support saving the environment, shall we?

Actor Chris Hemsworth flies via private jets

Actress Kerry Washington’s former massive home

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ massive LA home

Willow Smith aboard a private yacht on a getaway to Italy

Model Giselle Bundchen flying via private jet

Until these hypocrites give up their massive homes, private jets, private yacht vacations and worldwide press tours, I’m going to ignore their faux concern for the environment.

Hypocrisy on steroids: Global elite take private jets & super-yachts to Google Climate Summit

The hypocrisy of so-called environmentalist elites is limitless.

In January 2019, international financial and political elites took some 1,500 fuel-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jets to Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum on climate change being the greatest threat to the global economy. Davos, a small town in the Swiss Alps, is an easy taxi ride from a host of commercial airports.

The hypocrites did it again, for the just concluded 3-day Google Summer Camp on climate change at the posh, 5-star Verdura Resort on the Sicilian coast in Sciacca, Italy, where rooms start at $903 a night.

Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin invited to the top-secret gathering, costing some $20 million, a who’s who of A-list names, including (Page Six; Forbes):

The hypocrites arrived by private jets and yachts.

Among the yachts moored off the beach at Verdura Resort were Diller and Von Furstenberg’s $70 million EOS, Geffen’s $400 million super-yacht Rising Sun, Hart’s $275 million super-yacht Ulysees, Google co-founder Eric Schmidt’s $150 million super-yacht Infinity and its support vessel Intrepid, and Vetter’s Aquarius.

According to Italian press reports, the attendees arrived in 114 private jets.

Page Six reports that the New York Post “crunched the numbers and found that 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy, where guests landed, would spew an estimated 100,000 kilograms [220.46 lbs.] of CO2 into the air.”

Update:

Other attendees of the Google Hypocrite Summer Camp on climate change are (Daily Mail):

  • Hollyweirdo actors Orlando Bloom, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Lars Ulrich; talent manager Guy Oseary.
  • Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
  • Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank
  • Super-model Naomi Campbell
  • Pop singers Bono, Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra, John Legend, Chris Martin, Harry Styles.
  • UK fashion designer Stella McCartney.
  • CBS morning talk show’s Gayle King.
  • Google’s VP of engineering Benjamin Treynor Sloss with his wife Christine.
  • Italian restaurateur Massimo Bottura

#WarOnWomen: Quentin Tarantino signs on actor who assaulted female executive for "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood"

emile hirsch

Convicted offender Hirsch (l) and Tarantino with his buddy Weinstein (r)


Quentin Tarantino wrote and is directing a new movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which is due out August 2019. About the movie, from IMDb:
“A TV actor and his stunt double embark on an odyssey to make a name for themselves in the film industry during the Charles Manson murders in 1969 Los Angeles.”
You know who was murdered? Shannon Tate, who was 8 ½ months pregnant at the time of her grisly murder.
Now, 49 years later, Quentin Tarantino feels the need to make yet another movie about these horrific murders.
Here’s a list of some of the better-known actors who have signed on for this movie:

  • Brad Pitt
  • Margot Robbie
  • Leonardo DiCaprio
  • Dakota Fanning
  • Kurt Russell
  • Al Pacino
  • Luke Perry
  • Burt Reynolds
  • Emile Hirsch

That last name may not be familiar to you. I’ve never heard of him.
Emile Hirsch has a past of assaulting a woman. Here’s what I found out about Mr. Hirsch, from Wikipedia:
“Emile Davenport Hirsch (born March 13, 1985) is an American actor. He starred in Into the Wild (2007) and the A&E network simulcast miniseries Bonnie & Clyde (2013). Other films include The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys (2002), The Girl Next Door (2004), Lords of Dogtown (2005), Alpha Dog (2006), Speed Racer (2008), Milk (2008), The Darkest Hour (2011), The Motel Life (2012), Lone Survivor (2013), and Vincent N Roxxy (2016).
On February 12, 2015, Hirsch was charged with aggravated assault after initiating an altercation with, and then strangling, Paramount Pictures executive Daniele Bernfeld on January 25, 2015 at the Tao Nightclub in Park City, Utah. On August 17, 2015, he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault, and was sentenced to 15 days in jail. He was also fined $4,750, received 90 days of probation, and ordered to undergo 50 hours of community service.”
Apparently Hirsch was intoxicated at a party and doesn’t remember grabbing Daniele from behind, throwing her to the floor and putting her in a chokehold until she blacked out. It took two men to remove Hirsch from his victim.
Fun Fact: Quentin Tarantino knew of Harvey Weinstein’s bad behavior. Back in October 2017 he said the following (from USA Today):
“Quentin Tarantino has spoken out on his longtime and close working relationship with producer Harvey Weinstein, acknowledging that he’s ashamed he was aware of some of Weinstein’s abhorrent acts but did not take a stand against them.
“I knew enough to do more than I did,” the director told The New York Times in an interview published Thursday.
Tarantino cited several Weinstein episodes involving prominent actresses. 
“There was more to it than just the normal rumors, the normal gossip. It wasn’t secondhand. I knew he did a couple of these things,” Tarantino said. “I wish I had taken responsibility for what I heard.”
So a man (Tarantino) who ignored Weinstein’s behavior has signed on a convicted assault offender (Hirsch) to star in a movie about the murder of a pregnant woman?
Another Hollyweird movie I won’t be seeing.

Hypocrites: Hollyweird libtards lecture us about climate change at telethon


ManBearPig approved.
From Daily Mail: The A-list celebrities who starred in the telethon for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have clocked up hundreds of thousands of air miles which have fuelled rising temperatures and helped create devastating storms (the Daily Mail article will continue with this global warming theme; ignore they hypberbole).
Tuesday night’s Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief included performances and messages from Beyoncé, Justin Bieber, George Clooney, Cher and Leonardo DiCaprio. They appealed to viewers to donate to help fund relief efforts after the disastrous storms hit the southern US.
But a MailOnline investigation has revealed the extent to which stars have contributed to the catastrophic weather phenomenons with their jet-setting lifestyles.
Justin Bieber is calculated to have travelled at least 136,000 miles in a plane over the last year, environmentalist DiCaprio is believed to have done more than 87,000 miles while fellow actor Clooney did 61,000 miles.
Carbon emissions from plane journeys such as the celebrities’ cause the earth’s temperature to heat and the resulting higher ocean temperatures lead to more powerful hurricanes. The higher temperatures over land and sea mean the storms generate more energy.
Bieber was the biggest culprit, having flown on approximately 45 flights in the past 52 weeks. His longest flight was from Australia to the UK at the beginning of July having been down under on his Purpose World Tour. The 10,638-mile flight burned through a massive 1.8 tonnes of carbon dioxide alone in a year that stacked up against him in terms of his carbon footprint.
Trips to Germany, Dublin, Paris, Cape Town, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro and to his homeland Canada meant he clocked up a staggering 136,947 air miles burning through 22.45 tonnes of CO2 since September 2016.
The average annual carbon dioxide emissions per person in America is 20 metric tons, compared to a world average of four tons.  This means without even considering the miles he chugs in his cars or the emissions caused by heating and cooling his many homes, Bieber is above the average consumption.
Staunch environmentalist hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio has been jetting across the globe around twice a month in the past year. The actor flew around 87,609 miles on various business trips and jaunts around the world which burned up 14.8 tons of carbon dioxide. His longest trip was his return journey from California to the south of France where he enjoyed the iconic Cannes film festival.
In April, DiCaprio joined thousands of climate change protesters in Washington DC to mark President Donald Trump’s 100th day in office. Large crowds gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue for the People’s Climate March, an event that saw about 300 coinciding protests around the country, according to organizers.
The mercury rose to around 90F in DC, and protesters brought their own water bottles and sunscreen as they warned about the dangers of global warming.
Holding signs that read ‘There is no planet B’, and ‘Make Earth Great Again’, the protesters say they’re objecting to the president’s rollback of restrictions on mining, oil drilling and greenhouse gas emissions at coal-fired power plants, among other things.
George Clooney spent around 61,448 in the air since September last year which included a long trip to Italy this summer. He is thought to have flown 4,265 miles from Toronto to Los Angeles to attend Tuesday night’s Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief telethon at a cost of 720kg of CO2. His total air time meant his carbon emissions from flying alone was 10.31 tonnes of CO2.
Meanwhile, despite being pregnant with twins, Beyonce still managed to clock up 28,040 miles in 12 months burning through 4.55 tons of CO2. 
And at 71, Cher has been a relative homebird compared to the rest of her celebrity compatriots, only appearing to fly within the US in a total of 6,546.
The total emissions only takes into account the flights the celebrities have taken and is likely to be astronomic when driving, pollution from their concerts or films and the electric in their homes are considered.

Actor Chris Hemsworth is an environmental warrior hypocrite

chris hemsworth

Chris (center) and his buddies flying a private jet…


Chris Hemsworth is an Australian actor who is probably best known for his role in Thor. He also claims to be an environmental warrior, especially for the oceans. From One Green Planet:
Australian actor Chris Hemsworth recently posted a photo on Instagram while collecting plastic waste from a beach. The image was also captioned with an important message about the problem. Hemsworth is now the Ambassador of the #100Islandsprotected project by Corona X Parlay and is “thrilled to be a part of this program.”
The actor stressed that he’s spent a great part of his life around the ocean. In the presence of this enormous natural body, he always felt calm, happy, and present. This proximity to the ocean and the big part it has played in Hemsworth’s life made him realize all the more our need to protect it. “My experience in the Maldives made it obvious how our short-term use of plastic has a long-term damaging effect on our oceans,” he wrote.
As the Ambassador of the project, he will focus on educating people about the negative effects plastic waste has on the oceans.
This is not, however, the first time the actor spoke up about the environmental issues. Earlier this year, he posted a picture with a member of the Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii who runs large-scale beach clean-ups. Before that, Hemsworth posted about vaquitas, a marine species that is now severely endangered due to illegal fishing and on the verge of total extinction. He also spoke against whaling back in 2015.
Guess what the ambassador of the oceans did on Saturday to get to the Comic Con festival in San Diego? He flew via private jet to the event. The picture above is from his Instagram account.
From the web site of the private jet company Chris was on, Zetta Jet:
We at Zetta Jet are dedicated to putting the luxury back into private travel, to personalizing private flight again.
I know that plastic in the oceans is a big problem and commend him for supporting that issue.
Chris wants us to believe he understands the solution to protect the world’s oceans yet he flies a private gas-guzzling and –emitter jet which contributes to climate change (and he frequently flies via this mode). If you’re going to talk the talk, walk the walk (or fly commercial).
Course I’m sure Leo is proud of him.

Hollyweirdos fly 'eyebrow artist' 7,500 miles from Australia for Oscars

Hollyweirdos like Leonardo DiCaprio preach about global warming and the environment, but most of them are rank hypocrites whose palatial homes and private planes consume more energy and emit more carbon than the average American household in a year.
Here’s another Hollyweird extravagance: An Australian “eyebrow artist” named Sharon-Lee Hamilton was flown 7,500 miles to Los Angeles to work on a “brow wax and trim” for four Hollyweird A-listers.
tobey-maguire-leonardo-dicaprio
Initially, it was reported that great environmentalist Leonard DiCaprio had footed the bill. But a revised report by Sydney Morning Herald claims that “Representatives for DiCaprio say Hamilton was not a member of his Oscars glam squad and he did not fund her flying visit to the US.”
Nevertheless, DiCaprio is “rumored” to be one of Hamilton’s clients. The eyebrow artist’s other Hollyweird clients include George Clooney and DiCaprio’s best bud, Tobey Maguire. In fact, it was Maguire’s ex-wife, Jennifer Meyer, who first introduced Hamilton to DiCaprio.
Hamilton said, “I first began doing Jen Maguire while they were here in Sydney filming The Great Gatsby.” She usually charges $200 for her brow service in Australia, but “When we travel at request, our costs are covered.”

Leonardo DiCaprio Urged to Step Down From UN Climate Change Role

DiCaprio needs to hop on a private jet and rendezvous with Loretta Lynch on a tarmac ASAP.
dicaprio
From Hollywood Reporter: In perhaps the biggest attack on Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental credibility, a rainforest charity on Friday called on the actor to give up his title as UN Messenger of Peace with a special focus on climate change.
At a press conference in London, the Bruno Manser Funds offered DiCaprio an ultimatum: either he renounce his connections to the “politically exposed persons” at the center of the multi-billion dollar 1MDB Malaysian corruption scandal now being investigated by the U.S. Justice Department and return corrupt money he allegedly received or resign from the position he was given by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon in 2014.
“If DiCaprio is unwilling to come clean, we ask him to step down as UN Messenger for Peace for climate change, because he simply lacks the credibility for such an important role,” said Lukas Straumann, director of the Switzerland-based charity, which has a particular focus on deforestation in Malaysia.
DiCaprio is alleged to have received millions of dollars diverted from the 1MDB sovereign wealth fund for his role as star and producer of The Wolf of Wall Street, alleged by the DOJ to have been funded by stolen Malaysian money and produced by Red Granite, co-founded by Riza Aziz, the stepson of the Malaysian prime minister and a major figure in a DOJ filing. He is also alleged to have received laundered 1MDB money for his charity, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, from his former close associate Jho Low, the controversial Malaysian businessman at the heart of the scandal.

At the press conference, entitled “Recovery of Stolen Malaysian Assets,” a direct link was made between the 1MDB corruption scandal and major environmental issues in Malaysia, such as deforestation, one of the main concerns of the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
Clare Rewcastle Brown, whose online Sawarak Report has been investigating corruption in Malaysia for several years, said that one of 1MDB’s first initiatives was to “pay off the chief minister of Sawarak,” the Malaysian state on the vast island of Borneo where the 30-year rule of controversial governor Abdul Taib Mahmud has seen deforestation on a grand scale. “When I saw what 1MDB money had been plowed into, this notoriously corrupt timber baron, I was immediately suspicious,” she said.
The press conference took place the morning DiCaprio was confirmed as attending the BFI London Film Festival for Saturday’s European premiere of his environmental documentary Before the Flood. DiCaprio had been invited to talk at the press conference via an open letter from the Bruno Manser Funds, but didn’t respond. A red chair and name plaque were present in his absence.
“We can’t save the environment if we fail to stop corruption,” said Straumann, who called DiCaprio’s criticism of deforestation in the Indonesia-controlled parts of Borneo, “cynical hypocrisy.”
“He needs to become part of the solution,” he added. “But today he is part of the problem.”

Global Warming loons and hypocrites

#1: John “snake tongue” Kerry

Kerry tongue
America has a secretary of state who not only flicks his tongue like a serpent, he says climate change global warming will lead people to kill each other.
At the USAID’s 2014 Frontiers in Development Forum on September 19, 2014, Kerry spoke alarmingly about “500-year” drought conditions around the world which he attributes to global warming’s “heat waves.” The result is that “there are people killing each other over water in certain parts of the world.” The solution is sustainable development, reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and a “low-carbon economy”. (AllAfrica.com)

#2: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

RFK Jr & reporter
At the People’s Climate March in New York city on September 21, 2014, Junior totally lost it when PJMedia reporter Michelle Fields asked him about his carbon footprint and whether he would give up his phone and car to help combat climate change global warming. Environmental lawyer RFK Jr. became visibly irate, then grabbed Fields’ microphone and accused her of “destroying democracy” as a member of the press. (Daily Mail)
In an interview with Climate Depot during the march, Jr. also lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. He called global warming skeptics “contemptible human beings” and said, “I wish there were a law you could punish them with.” He called the pro-energy Koch brothers “treasonous” and that “they should be in jail . . . enjoying three hots and a cot at the Hague with all the other war criminals.”
[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=41yJTxrPFhM]
In so doing, RFK Jr. was echoing what other Warmists have said, including scientists David Suzuki and Michael Mann, Gawker’s Adam Weinstein, former NASA scientist James Hansen, and Grist.org’s David Roberts. (CNS News)
RFK Jr. flies around on private planes to lecture about the perils of global warming, and receives royalty payments from two family-owned oil drilling companies. See also “43 suspected mistresses found in RFK Jr.’s phone“.

Breitbart News asked Gore about the financial costs of renewable energy, as well as one of his houses—a mansion in Nashville that has previously been criticized for the amount of energy it reportedly uses. To which Gore gave a non sequitur reply, “Hundred percent.”
Gore then left in a large Chevrolet Suburban SUV. (Breitbart)

Actor and UN Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio — who flies in carbon-spewing private jet planes, owns FIVE carbon-spewing luxury homes , and cruises in the world’s 5th largest super yacht — also marched in the fashionable People’s Climate March, carrying a “100% FOR THE PLANET!” sign. (NY Post)
Oh, the irony! The hypocrisy!
Leonardo DiCaprio takes part in a march against climate change in New York
Watch Leo the hypocrite evade the question when CFACT’s Christina Norman asked him whether he is aware that there has been no global warming for 17 years.  This upset “Hulk” actor Mark Ruffalo who said, “Don’t make me angry! Anyone who attacks Leonardo DiCaprio is either a coward or an ideologue.”

This is rich: DiCaprio named U.N. messenger of peace for climate

hypocrite2
Reuters: Hollywood actor and environmental activist Leonardo DiCaprio has been named a United Nations Messenger of Peace, a post he will use to raise awareness about climate change, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Tuesday.
DiCaprio will address a U.N. summit meeting on climate change on Sept. 23, a day before the U.N. General Assembly’s annual gathering of world leaders begins. Many leaders from the 193 member states of the United Nations are expected to attend the climate session.

“Leonardo DiCaprio is not just one of the world’s leading actors,” Ban said. “He has also a long-standing commitment to environmental causes, including through his foundation.”
In 1998, the actor established the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, whose mission is protecting Earth’s last wild places and building a more harmonious relationship between humanity and the natural world, the United Nations said in a statement. The organization has contributed funds toward protecting tigers in Nepal, elephants in the wild, and marine animals, including sharks.
“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history – it is a moment for action,” DiCaprio was quoted as saying in the statement. “How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”
DiCaprio, 39, added that it was an honor for him to accept the post.
The Academy Award-nominated star of “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “The Aviator” joins other celebrities past and present, from Audrey Hepburn to Angelina Jolie, who have represented various U.N. organizations.
There are currently 11 other messengers of peace and one goodwill ambassador, the United Nations said. Other messengers who advise the world body on a variety of issues include actors Michael Douglas and Charlize Theron and author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel.
Well isn’t that special? The UN has an environmental hypocrite to raise awareness about climate change. Figures.
