Leo DiCaprio Flies 8,000 Miles On Private Jet To Accept 'Green' Award


Environmentally Aware Leo Flies 8,000 Miles To Prove He's A Hypocritical Dumb Ass

One month after he told the United Nations that "our planet cannot be saved, unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground, where they belong," Leonardo DiCaprio was flying across the Atlantic on gas-guzzling private jets to pick up an environmental award in NYC this week, then flying straight back to France on another private jet for a model-packed fund-raiser a night later.

Environmental analyst Robert Rapier tells Page Six that Leo's movie-star lifestyle which includes charter planes and private yachts 'diminishes his moral authority to lecture others on reducing their own carbon emissions.'

"He demonstrates exactly why our consumption of fossil fuels continues to grow. It’s because everyone loves the combination of cost and convenience they offer. Alternatives usually require sacrifice of one form or another. Everybody says, 'I've got a good reason for consuming what I consume' . . . It’s the exact same rationalization for billions of people."

According to The New York Times, air travel is an 'egregious environmental sin' — the worst one committed by most members of society. A round-trip, commercial flight from New York to San Francisco creates about three tons of carbon dioxide per passenger, the Times estimates, and those three tons equal about 15 percent of the annual warming effect registered by a typical American. The Times does not delve into the increased carbon dioxide per passenger caused by private jets, or huge yachts.

The True Cost of Chinese Solar Panels: Part 3


The human cost of blind consumption, explored.

The third in a series of blog posts about the Chinese solar panel industry. Read the first and second installments.

Despite U.S. tariffs placed on Chinese solar imports in 2012, $1.5 billion arrived in 2013 – up from $21.3 million in 2005. This has been considered a boon to solar’s proliferation across the U.S. But again, trade that ignores the conditions of production supports, quietly but irrefutuably, the environmental and human costs of unrealistically cheap products.

Those costs are myriad. First, consider that labor rights violations in China have been well-documented. From the use of sweatshops and child labor to forced labor prison camps, labor laws in China often go unenforced as national and local governments pursue breakneck economic growth. Investigations by the Laogai Research Foundation have documented hazardous working conditions in prison camps, including “mining asbestos without protective gear, battery acid being handled without gloves,” and vats of chemicals being stirred by naked individuals standing in them. And without proper and consistent monitoring and auditing of the supplier and its supply chain, it is impossible to know whether products are being produced ethically and sustainably in China.

John, the one thing I have noticed while driving around the Appalachia's from Pa to Tenn, the wind farms are set up in clear cuts along ridge tops which would seem to be counter intuitive. I mean, if your looking to reduce a carbon foot print, it seems to me that you'd be less likely to cut down all the damned trees to install one of these eye sores.

I wonder if Leo will play a starring role in this as well….
