Leonardo DiCaprio Fumes at Hypocrisy Charge on Global Warming

May 20, 2007

The earth can be saved if we listen to Leonardo DiCaprio. He has worshipped at the feet of Al Gore on the global warming issue and presents a new film designed to 'scare' folks into believing that they are at fault for global warming. But Leo is not at fault. Just ask him, but be careful, he gets testy when quizzed on the way he lives his life.

Leonardo DiCaprio Fumes at Hypocrisy Charge on Global Warming

The New York Daily News reports that Leo who is urging the world to go "green," insisted yesterday that he is not a do-as-I-say, not-as-I-do hypocrite because he takes the occasional gas-guzzling private jet.

The paper notes that DiCaprio got testy when a reporter confronted him at the screening of his eco-documentary, "The 11th Hour." Asked whether he flew in a luxury, private jet, he spat back, "No, I took a train across the Atlantic." When it was noted that many stars who preach conservation use emission-heavy private jets, a testy DiCaprio countered that he had taken a commercial flight from New York.

"I try to travel commercial as much as I can," he said. He added that he was irritated with the media for going after former Vice President Al Gore, whose own film "An Inconvenient Truth" picked up an Oscar. Gore was slammed for the amount of power his sprawling Tennessee mansion uses.

"We're all trying the best we can; truly, we really are," he said.
