Breitbart reports on the Luvvies’ Love In at St Tropez:

 

Leonardo DiCaprio sounded a dire warning at his charity foundation’s annual climate change gala in St. Tropez Wednesday night, telling the dozens of celebrities and dignitaries in attendance that they represent the “last generation” that has a chance to halt the deleterious effects of global warming.

 

Dozens of A-list stars made the trek to the French Riviera for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation’s annual Gala to Fund Climate and Biodiversity Projects, including U2 frontman Bono, actors Bradley Cooper, Edward Norton, Jonah Hill, Tobey Maguire and Chris Rock and singers Mariah Carey, Lana del Rey and The Weeknd.

The event’s co-chairs included Robert De Niro, Kevin Spacey, Kate Hudson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Penelope Cruz, Cate Blanchett and Charlize Theron.

The star-studded event raised a record $45 million for DiCaprio’s environmental projects, mainly through its charity auction, according to EcoWatch.

Attendees bid on items like a date with DiCaprio to the U.S. Open’s men’s final, a week on set with legendary director Martin Scorcese, an invitation to a poker game with Jonah Hill and Edward Norton and lunch with Wolf of Wall Street star Margot Robbie.

Other items at the auction included DiCaprio’s Rolex watch and the diamond cufflinks he wore while accepting his first Best Actor Academy Award for The Revenant earlier this year.

DiCaprio sounded a warning message in his remarks to the celebrity-packed room.

“While we are the first generation that has the technology, the scientific knowledge and the global will to build a truly sustainable economic future for all of humanity — we are the last generation that has a chance to stop climate change before it is too late,” DiCaprio said, according to EcoWatch.

The star’s weighty message didn’t dampen the festivities: del Rey and the Weeknd performed while Mariah Carey flitted about the room snapping pictures with her fellow celebrities.

As Breitbart News previously reported, DiCaprio may have hurt his own cause by hosting the gala in St. Tropez, France, far away from where many of its attendees live in Southern California.

If just one of the celebrities who attended the event traveled the 12,000-mile round trip from Los Angeles to France by private jet, they would have burned enough fossil fuel to emit approximately 86 tons of carbon dioxide. The average American, for comparison, puts out around 19 tons of carbon dioxide on airline flights per year.

Saving the planet done, Leo can get back home (via helicopter, buggy and private jet!)

 There seemed be just a handful of passengers making their way on to the private jet, whose fuel on average produces 21 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions per gallon burned

DiCaprio is followed on by his friends

Critics will be quick to note that the actor’s private jet trips undermine his moral authority to preach reducing carbon emissions

      better if they turned the engines off…….preferably half-way over the Atlantic !!!

    It’s all about making them feel good about themselves. Egotistical half wits.

    climate change is a circus.
    it would be lot more fun if it weren’t for those pesky deniers.

    It’s like “fighting fir peace” or “f******g for virginity”.

    Look at the pretentious wankers – all on phones during the arduous transfer from chopper to terminal. Must be all of 30 seconds. You just have to laugh at their lack of self-awareness.

    A series of comments here explain how lock-step consensus “science” of the UN and the UNAS (United National Academies of Sciences) destroyed the integrity of science, induced social insanity, and radicalized religious movements worldwide:

    I doubt if those clowns even know the make-up of the atmosphere.

  10. July 28, 2016 2:43 pm

    Their rank hypocrisy is only exceeded by their collective, gross stupidity! Flying from all over the world putting tons of CO2 into the atmosphere, is the hypocrisy, the stupidity is believing that CO2 is the biggest climate driver.

    You could be forgiven for thinking that these people were actually on our side, doing this sort of stunt to bring the green movement into disrepute. I suppose that they are helping our cause but unintentionally.

    The question that no-one (that I’ve come across) has yet answered is what happens to all the money. I doubt it is being used to alleviate the lot of the poor.
    What are these “environmental projects” and do they benefit anybody? And who were these people who dipped into their pockets for “a date with Leo de Caprio” (second prize, two dates with Leo de Caprio?)?
    The only positive from this seems to be in the claim that they are “the last generation that can stop climate change”.
    Mrs J’s reaction (inevitably) was, “Oh good!”
    ‘Nuff said.

    The average American, for comparison, puts out around 19 tons of carbon dioxide on airline flights per year.

    Many of us stay home. I, and many others, haven’t flown in years. The distribution for this data likely has a very long tail. “Average” is likely not a good representation of the data.

    Grotesque.

    Have a safe flight and please remember to always “do as I say, not as I do.”

    They should all join the King Canute Appreciation Society, they all have a lot in common. Completely nuts!

      Unfortunately once again someone misunderstands King Canute. His action was to PROVE to his servants that he was NOT powerful enough to stem the tides !! he was an intelligent and humble man.

    The world will far stupider if those gene pools continue.

    Is diCaprio looking more like Stalin?

      No Lishenko. (If I have the correct spelling).

    As explained in three posts yesterday,

    A tiny, massive object at the center of the solar system can and has controlled:

    1. The production of our elements
    2. The birth of the solar system
    3. Life’s origin and evolution
    4. Earth’s changing climate
    5. Human destiny

    Any competent nuclear scientist, not controlled by the UN or the UNAS (National Academies of Sciences), can and will confirm the power of NEUTRON REPULSION in cores of
    _ a.) Heavy elements like Uranium
    _ b.) Some planets like Jupiter
    _ c.) Ordinary stars like the Sun
    _ d.) Galaxies like the Milky Way
    _ e.) The now expanding Cosmos

    It’s dreadful the sacrifices top-flight celebrity Social Justice Warriors like deCaprio and his cronies have to make in their quest to ‘Save the World™’.
