Leonardo DiCaprio Film Claims Global Warming Could Cause Human Extinction

Honestly, the arrogance of some Hollywood liberals knows no bounds. As they live in their million dollar mansions, and jet-set around the world in a manner that 99.99 percent of the population can’t fathom, these folks have the gall to tell others how they should alter their lives for the benefit of the planet.

The most recent example is Leonardo DiCaprio, the 32-year-old actor that has absolutely no formal training in geology, climatology, meteorology, or anything in any way related to complex earth sciences.

In fact, in the picture to the right, DiCaprio could easily be answering a question about just how much education he has in these or related subjects, as according to Wikipedia, Leo never attended college.

Yet, he has the unmitigated audacity to claim in his new film that if we don’t listen to him and other scientifically uneducated folks like soon-to-be-Dr. Al Gore, we’re all going to die.

As reported by The London Paper (emphasis added throughout):

Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio sent out a message about global warming at the Cannes Film Festival.

The heartthrob has made a film, the 11th Hour, warning that human beings face extinction as a result of the environmental crisis.

Imagine that. These alarmists haven’t been able to get enough attention by threatening famine, stronger hurricanes, droughts, floods, malaria, and all manner of unrest with their unwarranted hysteria. So, I guess the next step is to suggest that we’re all going to die if we don’t listen to them.

Isn’t that special?

Yet, the most delicious hypocrisy was still to come:

DiCaprio defended Gore from criticism over the amount of energy he has been reportedly using to jet around the world and to run his home.

"Don't shoot the messenger", he said. "This person is trying to relay a message to the public and the way that he travels should not be splayed out like that."

Yes, Leo, but his message to the public is that we all should radically alter our lifestyles to save the planet. Why should we do that if the messenger appears not to be?

Of course, given his apparent lack of advanced education, this hypocrisy is clearly eluding our boy Leo. But, it doesn’t end there:

The US star said he took steps in his own life to reduce global warming, telling the famous film festival: "I do try to live my life in a green manner. I have installed solar panels in my house and the car that I drive is a hybrid one.”

Sure, Leo. Here’s an overhead picture of your house in Bel Air, California. Can you tell the class how much energy you use to heat, light, and air condition it each year?

Please, be precise, Leo, and tell us how many kilowatts of electricity you use each month, along with natural gas and/or heating oil, and don't forget to include the water to irrigate your intricate landscaping.

Also, tell us how you’ve specifically altered your lifestyle since you took on this cause? What’s YOUR carbon footprint, and are you willing to take Senator Inhofe’s Personal Energy Ethics Pledge to reduce your energy use to that of the average American's in twelve months?

If not, honestly Leo, regardless of your charm, your money, and your good intentions, you’re just another rich, “Do as I Say, Not as I Do” Hollywoodan who should be seen and not heard.
