Leonardo DiCaprio: We Can’t Elect a Candidate Who Doesn’t Believe in Climate Change

dicaprioOscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio told reporters in Japan on Wednesday the United States must elect a president who takes climate change science seriously.

At a press conference in Tokyo promoting The Revenant, the actor and environmental activist told the media, “We should not have a candidate who doesn’t believe in modern science to be leading our country,” according to the AFP.

He added: “Climate change is one of the most concerning issues facing all humanity and the United States needs to do its part.”

Of his filmmaking partner Fisher Stevens, who produced the 2010 documentary The Cove, DiCaprio said, “We’ve been traveling around the world documenting climate change.”

DiCaprio is working on a climate change documentary that will be released before November, and he reportedly visited China, India, and the North Pole and South Pole with Stevens.

Republican presidential candidates Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Donald Trump have both expressed doubts about the science behind climate change.

Trump described the hysteria as a “very, very expensive form of tax,” adding, “A lot of people are making a lot of money.”

Trump has also tweeted about his opinion on climate change on numerous occasions in recent years.

    First, consider Professor Leonardo’s stellar education according to Wikipedia:

    [i]”he dropped out of high school following his third year, eventually earning his general equivalency diploma (GED)”[/i]

    That certainly qualifies him as an expert who can lecture the American rabble on the many and always changing ultra-elaborate “man made” anthropogenic climate change models.

    These consistently failed models are like a Rube Goldberg model on steroids, wrapped in an enigma, and shrouded in controversy and fraud. Yet Professor Leonardo tells us we “must believe” their infallibility to be true citizens of the world… Sounds more like the formula for a totalitarian nightmare than informed citizenry.

    However, I’m sure that Professor Leonardo has no underlying Hollywood-influenced political motivations whatsoever… After all, this is science.

    According to media accounts he is very fond of the Gulfstream 6 which averages 320 gallons per hour on jet A fuel.

    There is also this account from the Daily Caller: “While in Brazil, the 39-year-old plump playboy stayed on a 470-foot yacht owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, according to Arab News. The glitzy yacht, called the Topaz, is the fifth-biggest yacht on earth. The fancypants vessel boasts a gym, a movie theater, two helipads and three swimming pools.”

    Of course all this is necessary to support the Professor’s minimal standards as he gathers more “research” for his next set of scientific proclamations to the unwashed American public.

    The USA is doing its part Leo , It provides the fuel for preachy Hollywood actors private jets and a host of other fun stuff actors enjoy .
    Heated pools ,fancy cars , warm mansions …you know stuff many poor people only dream about .
    Those coal miners and gas frackers are working flat out to keep Hollywood actors in the style they are accustomed to . Show a little appreciation or move to that oh so progressive radical place China you rave about .
    Why are some of the biggest promoters of scary global warming the biggest hypocrites ? Maybe they have a lot of time on their hands and hey $million dollar movie paydays could make anyone feel smarter than they are . Why not donate all that hard earned cash to build their own bird blender farms . You know walk the talk .

    Or maybe what we are seeing is a bit of ground work for a fatter prize ?

    Better hurry the con is unraveling fast .
