Pressure mounts on climate hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio to stand down from his UN Climate Change role

As if it isn’t bad enough that climate hypocrite Leonardo DiCaprio flies around the world in private jets while lecturing us on the perils of CO2, he is now being pressured to renounce his UN Climate Change role because of his involvement in a corruption scandal.

A rainforest charity calls on the star to either denounce his connection to individuals involved in a Malaysian corruption scandal and return laundered money he allegedly received or give up his role.

In perhaps the biggest attack on Leonardo DiCaprio’s environmental credibility, a rainforest charity on Friday called on the actor to give up his title as UN Messenger of Peace with a special focus on climate change.

At a press conference in London, the Bruno Manser Funds offered DiCaprio an ultimatum: either he renounce his connections to the “politically exposed persons” at the center of the multi-billion dollar 1MDB Malaysian corruption scandal now being investigated by the U.S. Justice Department and return corrupt money he allegedly received or resign from the position he was given by UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon in 2014.   Read more »

Leonardo DiCaprio’s climate change double standard

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 a double-standard on the issue of climate 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 by Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan – a billionaire oil tycoon from the UAE.

What happened on this beach that Kim Dotcom doesn’t want you to know?

Rachel Glucina has been talking to Alex Mardikian and Jesse Bushyhead…and something interesting has come up.

What happened on a restricted beach in Italy?

Is this confirmation or proof that Kim Dotcom has been lying the past few days about his personal beliefs?

Mardikian says he introduced Dotcom to the likes of Hollywood producer Rob Schroeder, Grammy producer Printz Board and hip hop recording artist Swizz Beatz, husband of Alicia Keys. “I used all my sources and contacts for him. All his wishes were fulfilled,” he said.

But it was a movie inspired by Dotcom’s lifestyle filmed in Europe in the summer of 2011 where things turned surreal.  Read more »
