Leonardo DiCaprio claims to care about the Earth. He also blames mankind for the threat of climate change. But he’s unwilling to let his passion for the planet get in the way of his Oscar preening.
Climate alarmist Leonardo DiCaprio will produce a live action version of the ‘90s cartoon show Captain Planet. This is the same movie star who has previously made extreme statements such as calling for the expulsion of any public office holder who is skeptical of global warming.
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio sat on the White House lawn on Oct. 3, and proclaimed that anyone who doesn’t not believe in climate change “should not be allowed to hold public office.”
“The scientific consensus is in and the argument is now over, if you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts or in science or empirical truths and therefore, in my humble opinion, should not be allowed to hold public office,” DiCaprio stated at the White House South By South Lawn (SXSL) event.
One of the liberal media’s favorite Hollywood actors, Leonardo DiCaprio, intended to host a fundraiser in his home for Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton.
However, he backed out and the fundraiser was moved to Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel’s house, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
THR reported that multiple sources blamed DiCaprio’s work schedule, but the publication reminded readers of recent reports of an international money scandal that the actor and his foundation “may have benefited” from.
In case you missed it (lucky you), MTV held its 25th Annual MTV Movie Awards hosted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Chris Ro-- I mean, Kevin Hart. This dynamic duo managed to throw down no less than 18 curse words in the opening 9 minutes of the show. Johnson and Hart were so foul-mouthed even Amy Poehler joked that she would keep her acceptance speech clean in order to get more airtime.
Reporting for CBS This Morning on Monday, Entertainment Tonight host Kevin Frazier offered rave reviews of Sunday’s Oscars pushing one liberal agenda item after another: “You know, there was no way last night's broadcast could be just about the awards....the real spotlight was on Oscars lack of diversity and the show's host Chris Rock owned the night.”
“Outstanding.” That’s how Good Morning America co-host Robin Roberts described liberal Leonardo DiCaprio’s climate change speech at the Oscars. The journalists at ABC were thrilled over the movie star’s advocacy. Lara Spencer hyped, “And Leo with his sixth Oscar nomination finally having his moment taking home best actor and using it as a platform for global change.”
Hollywood is infamously liberal and the Oscars are always a night when they really let their political freak flags fly. Whether it’s activist films or actors lecturing to the American public during acceptance speeches, politics inevitably takes center stage, especially in an election year.
Leonardo DiCaprio won Best Actor in a Motion Picture, Drama at the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards, but you knew the lefty global warming extremist wouldn't just stick to thanking his family and friends. Watch him rail against "corporate interests" exploiting Native Americans' "indigenous land," and "protect[ing] this planet for future generations."
Movie star Leonardo DiCaprio went into full climate panic on Thursday. Appearing on PBS’s Charlie Rose, he speculated as to weather it’s “too late” to save the planet from the ravages of global warming. Reflecting on last year’s climate conference in Paris, the jet-setting actor pontificated, “The big question is are we too late? That's been the pondering question for everyone. I know we should all remain optimistic and I want to remain optimistic.”
Hollywood and global-warming panic have always been a natural match. After all, who can tell you better to cut back on your wasteful ways better than a high-flying multi-millionaire movie star with the carbon footprint of a Tyrannosaurus Rex?
It's never mattered that the stars have all the scientific expertise of Pee Wee Herman. They're just so good-looking and famous, who cares? PBS broadcast a ten-hour series in 1990 entitled Race to Save the Planet. The show's host was Meryl Streep, who proclaimed: "By the year 2000...the Earth's climate will be warmer than it's been in over 100,000 years. If we don't do something, there will be enormous calamities in a very short time." Oops.
Journalists help promote Hollywood celebrities while condemning average Americans for causing climate change. The same media go out of their way to ignore or excuse the hypocrisy of celebrity “environmentalists” who fly their private jets around the world, rent mega-yachts and live in massive mansions.
Avatar Director James Cameron warned of a future “world that’s in shambles” because of climate change, and said he believes “in ecoterrorism” yet, he owns an impressive private collection of motorcycles, cars, dirt bikes, a yacht, a helicopter, a Humvee fire truck and a $32-million submarine. ABC and CBS even praised Cameron for his submarine purchase, with CBS’s Gayle King saying she loved his “passion and curiosity.”
