Oscars: Leo gives the speech from two decades ago
When he finally got the nod from the Academy, he trotted out the predictably tedious climate alarmism that might have been stirring or relevant a decade or so ago, but which is almost quaint by today’s standards, when even Michael Mann’sflaccid stick acknowledges the existence of The Pause.
‘Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship to the natural world…climate change is real,’ said DiCaprio. ‘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.’
‘Let us not take our planet for granted,’ he concluded. ‘I do not take tonight for granted.’ (source)
Yawn. The irony is that for almost all the period he has been twiddling his thumbs waiting for his little statuette, there has been essentially no global warming.
Leo then went off in his petrol-fuelled motorcade to fly home in his kerosine-powered private jet.
