Took the yacht up from the Med maybe? Looking good with the tan.

At least he did not use a private jet and arrived on a commercial flight.

Good Hollywood actor, within the US though.

Another "eco-hypicrite". One of the many saying "We must reduce our carbon emissions to save the planet" when they really mean you (little people) must do as we say, but not as we (elites) do.

Pffft!

Just another photo opportunity to enhance his false status.

This stuff is a circus

If you need a circus to promote something then it can't be serious

Leonardo DiCaprio has donated millions to environmental causes. Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation has raised more than $100 million for the fight against climate change.

Freaking actors, what do they know?

DeCaprio must be right. He drives a Prius, you know.

Di Caprio's decision to fly commercial to this virtue signalling gathering is just more virtue signalling. He rarely flies non-private jets in real life.

Di Caprio's 12,000 square foot house in California, one of many that he owns, produces on its own more carbon emissions than 2,000 average Indian citizens do every year. 2000 humans : 1 "star". And no, he couldn't appear via video; he HAD to fly there...to "help" save the earth!

This guy is "totally" into saving the world, dude...pft!~

Leonardo DiCaprio’s foundation has raised more than $100 million for the fight against climate change.

Raised from his fans, not his own pocket.

How much have you raised and donated? For any cause, for that matter?

DiCaprio's total charitable giving to more than $100 million. That's not exactly an insignificant portion of Leonardo's $260 million current net worth.

Leonardo or Greta?

Your pick.

The whole premise behind climate change theory is that less is more.

He lives in a mansion, I live in a house.

He flies in a personal private jet, I sit in economy.

He eats 1000 dollar meals prepared by 10 chefs using exotic ingredients, I eat a hot dog.

He wears fancy silk suits, I wear cotton t-shirts.

If carbon footprints are going to be the yardstick, let's measure his against mine.

Me too (like you, that is)!

Donating millions of dollars, does not get you off the hook, Leo.

Donating half of his wealth is not something to stick your finger up at.

He also employs many people.

He is an actor and star of Hollywood. How many others are richer and do nothing?

You would prefer he did nothing?

He does not own a private jet.

All of the rich and super-rich like Musk and Bezos have large carbon footprints.

He pays about 50% in taxes.

California max rate 12.3%

Federal 39.6%

Deduct state taxes, with no other deductions - (-4.9%)

Medicare as independent contractor 2.9%

Total - 49.9%

After flying in on his private jet no doubt!

Leonardo or Greta?

Your pick.

Not much of a choice, but as Greta is “a strong, confident woman” hypocrite and Leo is “a white cis-gendered male” hypocrite I’d be crazy not to choose her.
