Leonardo DiCaprio felt it important to preach about global warming at the Oscar’s last night, without letting the crowd know that he used a private jet to get there.
After winning the award, he felt it important to tell a room of rich liberals that global warming is real and we need to elect a president who agrees that using violence to promote a horrendous agenda is important.
“Climate change is real,” he said. “It is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat affecting our species. We need to work together and stop procrastinating.”
The Revenant star went on to say that global warming was “the most urgent threat affecting our entire species” and that it even affected the making of the movie for which he won the Oscar.
“Our production needed to move to the southern tip of this planet just to find snow,” he said, claiming 2015 was the “hottest year on record.”
Now, hypocrisy aside – we’ll get into that in a bit – let’s take a look at the facts.
2015 was not the hottest year on record, it wasn’t even close.
As reported by Forbes:
“Satellite temperature readings going back to 1979 show 1998 was by far the warmest year in the satellite era, followed by 2010. 2015 comes in third. And these results are only for the period since 1979.
2015 should have been warmer. This past year saw what is likely the most powerful El Nino during the satellite temperature record. With a record El Nino, we should have experienced record high temperatures. Yet we didn’t.
A record El Nino resulting in less-than-record temperatures is another sign that global warming is not all that activists crack it up to be. Indeed, if a record strong El Nino cannot bring global temperatures back to the warmth of 1998, what can – and when will that be? 18 years after 1998, global warming still has not created the runaway warming we were told to expect.”
Getting back to Leo’s flummox. If according to Leo, CO2 usage is a problem, why did he find it necessary to fly 6 times in 6 weeks in a private jet?
Travel records also show that DiCaprio took a private jet from L.A. to Las Vegas and stayed in Sin City for just eight hours before flying home again.
So, in essence, we have a celebrity that’s begging for politicians to deal with a “problem” that he is contributing to in a preposterous fashion. At the same time, you have millions of people cheering that a man who is getting paid tens of millions of dollars to act is getting a golden award bestowed to him by a group of rich bureaucrats.
Come on, Americans, you’re better than that.
