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.


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.”

Par for the course for this Hollyweird hypocrite.

Leonardo DiCaprio takes part in a march against climate change in New York

From Daily Mail: Eco warrior wannabe Leonardo DiCaprio is back doing what he does best: Fighting for the environment while simultaneously contributing to its demise.

On Wednesday, DiCaprio hosted his annual eco fundraiser gala, which saw an impressive cast of A Listers descend on St. Tropez to raise funds for various conservation projects.

‘We are the last generation that has a chance to stop climate change before it is too late,’ the Oscar winner told the crowd.

But his sentiment would be more believable had he not hopped off a helicopter to board a gas guzzling private jet two days later. And to add insult to injury, he was driven by golf buggy across the airport runway for the short distance between the two.

DiCaprio was pictured donning a pair of camouflage shorts, a purple T Shirt and a straw hat as he made his way across the tarmac in the August heat with friends Tobey Maguire and Vincent Laresca. He was then pictured minutes later talking on the phone and sucking on a vaper, as he was carted across the runway by buggy.

There seemed be just a handful of passengers making their way on to the private jet, whose fuel on average produces 21 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per gallon burned. He also flew in a bevy of models for the occasion and stuck them on a luxury 300ft yacht.

Critics will be quick to note that the actor’s private jet trips undermine his moral authority to preach reducing carbon emissions.

But perhaps he is hoping this will be offset by the almost $45 million that was raised to support The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Annual Gala To Fund Climate And Biodiversity Projects. The black-tie fundraiser held in a French vineyard was attended by do-gooder Bono, famous receiver of dodgy diamonds Naomi Campbell, and a smattering of other party-hard pals.

In a speech that heralded the start of the lavish affair, he told the star-studded crowd: ‘While we are the first generation that has the technology, the scientific knowledge and the global will to build a truly sustainable economic future for all of humanity—we are the last generation that has a chance to stop climate change before it is too late.’ 

His intentions may be good, but his unashamed weakness for luxury travel does him little favors if he genuinely wishes to be the savior of Planet Earth.

DiCaprio took a private jet twice in May to pick up an environmental award in New York – before flying back to a glitzy gala in France. The actor and environmentalist, 41, was spotted this week in Cannes during the Film Festival.

But he left the French Riviera for a brief trip to New York City, where he collected an honor at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball on Wednesday, Page Six reported. He then hopped back on another private jet to attend the amfAR gala in Antibes, about eight miles from Cannes, just 24 hours later. 

The actor, who turned his Oscars speech into a pressing warning against climate change in February, accumulated more than 8,000 of air travel in just a couple of days.

DiCaprio was slammed last year by RadarOnline, which reported he had taken six private jets in just six weeks in 2014. Emails leaked from Sony at the time stated DiCaprio had accumulated more than $200,000 worth of private jet travel between April and May, taking two round trips from Los Angeles to New York, then one from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.



Environmental hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio’s new movie bombs during its first weekend


DiCaprio’s new movie, The Revenant, opened this past weekend. This was the movie of which the environmental hypocrite admitted he was forced to do ‘some of the most difficult things’ he’s ever done during the gruelling nine-month shoot in Canada and Argentina.

Keep in mind he was paid $20 MILLION to do some of the most difficult things he’s ever done on a movie shoot.

So how did The Revenant do on the first weekend of release? It only made $471,000 (limited release). The budget for this fantastic ? $135 MILLION.

Leonardo DiCaprio says his new film was ‘the most difficult thing’ he’s ever done

Don’t feel too bad for this environmental hypocrite. His salary for this movie was $20 MILLION.


Daily Mail: Leonardo DiCaprio slept in animal carcasses on the set of The Revenant. The 40-year-old actor plays a fur trapper that sets out on a path of vengeance against his hunting team who left him for dead after a bear mauling in the new film.

And in a new interview he admitted he was forced to do ‘some of the most difficult things’ he’s ever done during the gruelling nine-month shoot in Canada and Argentina.

The four-time Oscar nominee told Yahoo! Movies: ‘I can name 30 or 40 sequences that were some of the most difficult things I’ve ever had to do.  Whether it’s going in and out of frozen rivers, or sleeping in animal carcasses, or what I ate on set. [I was] enduring freezing cold and possible hypothermia constantly.

Leonardo says a lot of his horrified reactions in the film were genuine. He continued:  ‘I certainly don’t eat raw bison liver on a regular basis. When you see the movie, you’ll see my reaction to it, because Alejandro [González Iñárritu, the director] kept it in. It says it all. It was an instinctive reaction.’

But the heartthrob hypocrite insists he has no regrets about signing on to start in the film alongside Tom Hardy and Domhnall Gleeson. He said: ‘It’s going to be one of the most unique film-going experiences that audiences have seen in modern times.’

After raising $40M for the environment, DiCaprio heads off on another luxury yacht vacay

Leonardo DiCaprio takes part in a march against climate change in New York

Leonardo DiCaprio raised over $40 million to help save the planet at an auction in Saint-Tropez, France, on Wednesday night. So how did he celebrate?

All aboard the love boat! Leonardo DiCaprio unwinds in the sun of St. Tropez


Daily Mail: He raised the titanic figure of $40million at a charity gala earlier this week, so it was no wonder that Leonardo DiCaprio wanted to relax aboard a luxury yacht on Thursday. The 40-year-old actor cut a casual figure as he and his model girlfriend, Kelly Rohrbach, 25, were seen boarding a glamorous boat in the bay of Saint-Tropez, France. After raising a truly Herculean sum at his annual fundraising gala on Wednesday evening, Leo could afford to enjoy a romantic day aboard the vessel with Kelly and recharge his batteries.

Arriving in style at the aft of the vessel in a small boat with his girlfriend and entourage, the Wolf Of Wall Street actor cut a casual figure in keeping with the laid-back day he was enjoying. Sporting his trademark cap pulled low over his brow, aviators and sporting a scruffy man bun, the bearded star looked ready to enjoy the excessive luxury that was available on board.

Keeping comfort a key theme for the rest of his ensemble, Leo looked nautically chic with a polo shirt, shorts and deck shoes. Leggy model Kelly kept a relaxed vibe to her ensemble too, as she wore a white sundress over a leopard print bikini – staying with the laid-back theme of the day whilst also flaunting her toned legs, and cheekily exposing her toned bum at times.

Just the night before the Hollywood heartthrob had managed to raise millions in aid of preserving the planet and its ecosystems. Hosting his second annual fundraiser gala for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, the night featured a live auction of fine art, luxury items and one-off experiences. The award-winning actor was joined by an army of A-list stars including Sir Elton John, Naomi Campbell and Michelle Rodriguez at the glittering event.

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.”

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!

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.”
