Climate Change hypocrites abound, every country has them.
In New Zealand we have Lucy Lawless and in the US they have plenty more. Al Gore is int eh A-League for climate hypocrisy, and Leonardo DiCaprio is now in the same league.
His carbon footprint so far in 2014 would be a minimum of 40 million metric tons, more than twice the average American output.
With his speech in front of the United Nations today, Leonardo DiCaprio cemented his reputation as one of the world’s highest-profile activists on climate change.
‘You can make history …or be vilified by it,’ he told world leaders.
After marching with 400,000 others on the streets of New York this weekend to demand tough regulations to cut the amount of CO2 being pumped into the air, DiCaprio opened a UN climate change summit by urging world leaders to crack down on polluters and ‘put a price tag on carbon emissions.’
But the 39-year-old Hollywood star’s own jetset lifestyle reveals aÂ double-standard on the issue of climateÂ change.
In his speech to the UN, he said: ‘This disaster has grown beyond the choices that individuals make.’
MailOnline can report that DiCaprio took at least 20 trips across the nation and around the world this year alone – including numerous flights from New York to Los Angeles and back, a ski vacation to the French Alps, another vacation to the French Riveria, flights to London and Tokoyo to promote his film Wolf of Wall Street, two trips to Miami and a private jet to Brazil to watch the World Cup.
And those were just the trips where he was spotted in public.
Additionally, DiCaprio owns at least four homes: two apartments in New York and mansions in Hollywood and Palm Springs.
He also recently sold an estate in Malibu for $17million.
And this summer, he spent his World Cup vacation on the fifth largest yacht in the world, which is owned byÂ Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan – a billionaire oil tycoon from the UAE.
