After speaking in front of the UN last year on the issue of climate change, Leonardo DiCaprio appears to have gone from talking the talk to actually walking the walk. Last month it was reported that DiCaprio’s foundation had raised over $40 million for the purpose of environmental protection.
Liberals have been quick to hail DiCaprio as a warrior for the environment, but lets not get ahead of ourselves without some further investigation.
A super yacht like the Topaz [and Rising Sun] can burn thousands of liters of marine diesel every hour as it cuts an impressive swatch through the ocean waters, leaving behind trails of smoke and tones of carbon dioxide. Additionally, such crafts can use up to 1000 liters a day or more just for its air-conditioning and electrical systems, according to Yacht Carbon Offset, a company that provides carbon offsetting for its seafaring clients.
DiCaprio is also planning to take a voyage on Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic. Estimates from the Federal Aviation Administration show that this trip will burn an amount of fuel equal to double the average American’s energy consumption.
