Leonardo DiCaprio ville belære FN om klimaet: Men han glemte lige sin egen livsstilLeonardo DiCaprio ville belære FN om klimaet: Men han glemte lige sin egen livsstil

Skuespilleren profilerer sig selv som foregangsmand i at ville forbedre klimaet, men han vil helst ikke tale om sit eget forbrug.

- I kan enten skrive historie eller blive hængt ud for det (CO2-forurening, red.).

Sådan lød tirsdag fra Leonardo DiCaprio for FN’s talerstol til alverdens ledere for at få dem til at indse, at de bør skride til handling nu for at redde klimaet.

Men disse ord bliver nu skudt tilbage mod den 39-årige mangemillionær selv i en negativ retning. For han medvirker selv til, at CO2-forureningen løber løbsk, skriver Daily Mail.

Det engelske medie har nemlig regnet sig frem til, at Leonardo DiCaprio alene i år har været afsted på mere 20 flyrejser, hvilket blandt andet har foregået i privat til VM i Brasilien. Dermed skulle han efter deres beregninger have sendt mindst 40 millioner tons CO2 ud i luften.

Derudover ejer den grønne skuespiller, som skulle være god for 1,27 milliarder danske kroner, to kæmpe villaer, to eksklusive lejligheder, en gigantisk yacht samt diverse køretøjer.

Den ubekvemme sandhed, at Leonardo DiCaprio selv er med til at forurene i stor stil, forsøgte en journalist at få svar på fra hovedpersonen selv, da han marcherede gennem New Yorks gader sammen med 400.000 andre i kampen for et bedre klima.

Men meget belejligt kom en mandlig person ham til undsætning ved at hoppe i mellem skuespilleren og den kvindelige journalist.

Derfor er det endnu uvist, hvad holdningen er fra Leonardo DiCaprio omkring sit forbrug, som er med til at skade klimaet.

Thank you, Mr. Secretary-General, your excellencies, ladies and gentleman, and distinguished guests. I’m honored to be here today, I stand before you not as an expert but as a concerned citizen, one of the 400,000 people who marched in the streets of New York on Sunday, and the billions of others around the world who want to solve our climate crisis.
As an actor I pretend for a living. I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems.
I believe humankind has looked at Climate Change in that same way: as if it were a fiction, happening to someone else’s planet, as if pretending that Climate Change wasn’t real would somehow make it go away.
But I think we know better than that. Every week , we’re seeing new and undeniable Climate Events, evidence that accelerated Climate Change is here now. We know that droughts are intensifying, our oceans are warming and acidifying, with methane plumes rising up from beneath the ocean floor. We are seeing extreme weather events, increased temperatures, and the West Antarctic and Greenland ice-sheets melting at unprecedented rates, decades ahead of scientific projections.
None of this is rhetoric, and none of it is hysteria. It is fact. The scientific community knows it, Industry and Governments know it, even the United States military knows it. The Chief of the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Command, Admiral Samuel Locklear, recently said that Climate Change is our single greatest security threat.
My Friends, this body - perhaps more than any other gathering in human history - now faces that difficult task. You can make history...or be vilified by it.
To be clear, this is not about just telling people to change their light bulbs or to buy a hybrid car. This disaster has grown BEYOND the choices that individuals make. This is now about our industries, and governments around the world taking decisive, large-scale action.
I am not a scientist, but I don't need to be. Because the world’s scientific community has spoken, and they have given us our prognosis, if we do not act together, we will surely perish.
Now is our moment for action
We need to put a pricetag on carbon emissions, and eliminate government subsidies for coal, gas, and oil companies. We need to end the free ride that industrial polluters have been given in the name of a free-market economy, they don't deserve our tax dollars, they deserve our scrutiny. For the economy itself will die if our eco-systems collapse.
The good news is that renewable energy is not only achievable but good economic policy. New research shows that by 2050 clean, renewable energy could supply 100% of the world’s energy needs using EXISTING TECHNOLOGIES, and it would create millions of jobs.
This is not a partisan debate; it is a human one. Clean air and water, and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics. It is our moral obligation - if, admittedly, a daunting one…
We only get one planet. Humankind must become accountable on a massive scale for the wanton destruction of our collective home. Protecting our future on this planet depends on the conscious evolution of our species.
This is the most urgent of times, and the most urgent of messages.
Honored delegates, leaders of the world, I pretend for a living.
But you do not. The people made their voices heard on Sunday around the world and the momentum will not stop. And now it’s YOUR turn, the time to answer the greatest challenge of our existence on this planet... is now.
I beg you to face it with courage. And honesty. Thank you.
