Leonardo DiCaprio and climate hypocrisy

Here’s part of the report on Breitbart Hollywood a couple of days ago:

Leonardo DiCaprio has been awarded the "Messenger of Peace" title, and on Tuesday morning, at the UN Climate Summit in New York, he demanded that the 193 world leaders in attendance take urgent action against climate change.

The environmental activist was recently nominated as the "new voice for climate advocacy" by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. 
"I pretend for a living. I play fictitious characters often solving fictitious problems. I believe that mankind has looked at climate change in that same way," the Hollywood actor confessed. "As if pretending that climate change wasn't real would somehow make it go away. But I think we all know better than that now." 
DiCaprio participated in the People's Climate March on Sunday in New York, where hundreds of thousands of people marched around the city to bring attention to the alleged "climate crisis."
"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," he said.
And here is the report of his visit to Brazil to attend the World Cup from The Daily Caller :
It’s been a crazy, busy, gas-guzzling summer for Leonardo DiCaprio, the famous actor and environmental activist. 
On Sunday, as the summer wound down, the mega-rich DiCaprio (estimated net worth: $220 million) was in New York City to join a mile-long swath of protesters for the People’s Climate March, reports the Daily Mail. 
At the very beginning of this summer, in mid-June, DiCaprio jetted into Brazil on a private plane to take in the opening match of the 2014 World Cup. 
While in Brazil, the 39-year-old plump playboy stayed on a 470-foot yacht owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan of Abu Dhabi, according to Arab News. The glitzy yacht, called the Topaz, is the fifth-biggest yacht on earth. The fancypants vessel boasts a gym, a movie theater, two helipads and three swimming pools.
Here’s the yacht:

Here’s the report by Doug Powers on DiCaprio’s gas-guzzling trip to South Africa for the World Cup in 2012: 
Leonardo DiCaprio says he drives a hybrid car, and that makes for some good, clean transportation when he’s heading to the airport to get on his private jet — in this case to travel to South Africa, where he contributed to an air traffic jam induced by jet-set eco-hypocrites, causing many others miss the game
And via Dr. Eowyn's blogsite, here is just one of DiCaprio's 5 luxury homes, this one  
a $5.2 million 6-bedroom mansion in Palm Springs, California, purchased in February 2014. The 1.34 acre property has 7 bathrooms, a detached state-of-the art gymnasium, a pool house and a tennis court with a glass pavilion surround.

Is Leonardo DiCaprio’s carbon footprint now in competition with Al Gore’s? The hypocrisy is breathtaking.
