Rumors flew over the past few days that actor Leonardo DiCaprio had flown an “eyebrow artist” 7,500 miles to California to prep him for the Oscars. It is an embarrassing admission for the outspoken environmentalist who lectures us about our wasteful carbon emissions. He denies the rumor, but there is no denying Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental hypocrisy.
DiCaprio uses his considerable fame as a platform for environmental conservation. That sounds like a good cause on the surface, but the actor preaches a radical environmental gospel.
Newsbusters points out DiCaprio’s constant lecturing to us poor average folk about our abuse of the environment.
DiCaprio must have forgotten that in his 2016 Oscars acceptance speech he claimed climate change was the “most urgent threat facing our entire species,” as well as and his Earth Day 2016 declaration that “our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground, where they belong.”
However, because DiCaprio is among the liberal elites, he doesn’t have to practice what he preaches. Indeed, Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental hyprocrisy is near legendary.
Just last year, Forbes called DiCaprio one of the world’s “big polluters” for his extravagant, jet-setting lifestyle that leaves a huge carbon footprint.
In January, he even flew by private jet to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, to attack the “greed” of the energy industry. In one six-week stretch during 2014, he took six private flights between New York and Los Angeles, according to WikiLeaks. That same year, he rented the world’s fifth largest yacht, Topaz, from Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, which boasts its oil reserves as the seventh-largest in the world, in order to watch the World Cup with his friends.
The Topaz reportedly burns through $6 million in fuel a year, which breaks down to $16,438 a day.
And while DiCaprio drives environmentally friendly cars, including a Fisker electric car and a Prius, and rides a bike around New York City, he owns multiple homes which use a lot of energy, including a $4 million apartment in New York, a Malibu beach house with a guest house, and a $5 million Palm Springs mansion.
