The planet’s climate is constantly on the brink of changing. This is a crisis — a climate crisis — and it can only be solved by the brightest minds of our epoch.
For the noble goal of saving Earth from having different seasons across time, Climate Empress Greta Thunberg has entered some kind of partnership with actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
Leonardo DiCaprio has met with Greta Thunberg, calling the 16-year-old ‘a leader of our time’ and revealing the two campaigners have ‘made a commitment to support one another‘.
The Oscar winning actor – who has been widely criticized for his use of private jets despite his interest in environmental causes – said it was an ‘honor’ to speak with the climate activist, posting an image of the two of them together on Friday.
It was an honor to speak with Her Highness.
What kind of support can Her Highness give to Leo though? Other than publicly saying “I support him”?
I guess she can stare at people very disapprovingly to force them to donate money or something.
In an Instagram post Leo said he hopes Greta’s message is ‘a wake up call to world leaders’, adding that the schoolgirl makes him ‘optimistic about what the future holds’.
It comes as Greta took to her own social media pages pleading for help in getting to the United Nations’ COP25 climate change summit.
She had been heading to Chile but after a location change from Santiago to Madrid she has ‘traveled half around the world, the wrong way’.
Greta, who refuses to travel by plane for environmental reasons, wrote: ‘Now I need to find a way to cross the Atlantic in November… If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful.’
The brightest Climate Mind is being carried around by others, like a proper
In September DiCaprio, who used his acceptance speech at the 2016 Academy Awards to urge lawmakers to ‘stop procrastinating’ about the issues surrounding climate change, came out in support of Greta at a New York conference.
But he has been criticized in the past for his use of private jets. In 2014 emails hacked from film studio Sony, it was revealed he took six private flights in just six weeks which cost $177,550. This travel included two round trips from Los Angeles to New York, and one from LA to Las Vegas.
In 2016 he hosted his annual eco fundraiser gala, which saw an impressive cast of A-listers descend on St Tropez to raise funds for various conservation projects before hopping off a helicopter to board a gas guzzling private jet two days later.
At least he flies in private jets for the right reasons. That’s what counts, in the end.
Can you imagine the future Climate Emperor mixing with the plebs on a normal flight?
Her Highness needs a proper Emperor. After all, she travels in racing yachts with European royalty.
DiCaprio runs an environmental organization, Earth Alliance. He recently formed a $5 million fund to protect the Amazon rainforest from increasing fires.
In his Oscar acceptance speech he said: ‘Climate change is real, it is happening right now. It is the most urgent threat facing our entire species, and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.
‘We need to support leaders around the world who do not speak for the big polluters, but who speak for all of humanity, for the indigenous people of the world, for the billions and billions of underprivileged people out there who would be most affected by this.’
Earth Alliance sounds like something out of a comic book, and coincidentally, the whole Climate Change and Climate Crisis tale also sounds like something out of the plot of a comic or movie.
All their predictions were wrong. But it is for real this time.
The Climate is changing.
