DiCaprio Gives Career-Best Performance As Whiny Green Activist Spurned By Trump

DiCaprio at climate march.Leonardo DiCaprio delivered a career-best performance on Tuesday in the role of ‘Whiny, Entitled, Millionaire Movie Star Who Can’t Accept That The President Won’t Take His Views On Climate Change Seriously.’

DiCaprio was speaking at the Yale Climate Conference, where he took to the podium to rehearse the usual litany of junk science claims made by alarmists to justify their $1.5 trillion a year Enron-style scam.

He said:

“We have watched as storms, wildfires, and droughts have worsened, and as extinctions have become increasingly frequent. And some of us have also listened as the scientific community sounded alarm bells about climate change as far back as the early 1990s.”

Not a single word of that first sentence is true by the way – and that includes the “we” and the “ands.”

There is no evidence whatsoever that “extinctions have become increasingly frequent.”

Nor have “storms, wildfires, and droughts” worsened as a result of climate change.

Having set out his stall of predictable and scientifically illiterate eco tosh, DiCaprio proceded to the most moving part of his peroration: the bit where he used his famed acting skills to deliver his “J’accuse” moment to evil, climate-denying President Trump and his wicked henchmen.

“Yet with all of this evidence – the independent scientific warnings, and the mounting economic price tag – there is still an astounding level of willful ignorance and inaction from the people who should be doing the most to protect us, and every other living thing on this planet.”

All this, despite the fact that, as DiCaprio petulantly noted, he had made a personal visit to “President-Elect Trump” last December, where DiCaprio had outlined a “comprehensive plan to tackle climate while harnessing the economic potential of green jobs” which would give the U.S. “the potential to lead the world in clean energy manufacturing.”

Amazingly, this was an offer President Trump found easy to refuse.

Perhaps it’s because he knows that green jobs are Potemkin jobs. They only exist through government subsidy, and they destroy jobs in the real economy.

Not, obviously, that DiCaprio would know this. He’s a mummer, not a thinker: brilliant at impersonating being raped by a bear; understanding science and economics, not so much.

Naturally, DiCaprio couldn’t resist dragging in the recent spate of hurricanes to bolster his argument about the menace of climate denialism.

Though they weren’t attributable to climate change, he said, they know “without doubt, in the science community, that it’s making them more extreme and more destructive.”

Again, there is no evidence for this. In fact, the most powerful hurricane year in the last century was 1933.

Maybe DiCaprio should consider a career in the movies. This climate nonsense is just a waste of good acting talent – and the scripts are risible.

    What ever happened to “flood ” . Did someone actually read the tide gauge in San Francisco ? Oh well something to do between increasingly long stretches of non acting for a living . Actor elects should stick with something they are trained in . Worried about floods ? Why own a Malibu Beach house ?

      “Actor elects should stick with something they are trained in .” He is doing just that, reading the script written by someone else. Meanwhile the spectre of the Chinook hangs over him.
