Hollywood environment hypocrites have just been exposed. These hypocrites are the same people who shame Americans that make minimum wage for driving older vehicles, or American farmers whose cattle are harming the environment by releasing too much Co2 into the environment when they pass gas.
Entitled “Believing in climate change, but not behaving sustainably: Evidence from a one-year longitudinal study” and published in the Journal of Environmental Psychology, the study of 600 people divided participants into three groups in accordance with their beliefs on climate change: those who were either “highly concerned,” “cautiously worried,” or “skeptical.”
Researchers concluded that those respondents who identified as “highly concerned” were “most supportive of government climate policies, but least likely to report individual-level actions, whereas the ‘Skeptical’ opposed policy solutions but were most likely to report engaging in individual-level pro-environmental behaviors.”
While the researchers expressed their surprise at the outcome, the paper speculated that “These results suggest that different groups may prefer different strategies for addressing climate change. Thus, belief in climate change does not appear to be a necessary or sufficient condition for pro-environmental behavior, indicating that changing skeptical Americans’ minds need not be a top priority for climate policymakers.”
The hypocrisy of climate-change alarmists has long been a political sticking point. Recently, the left-leaning Huffington Post called out the actions of well-travelled academics to who jet around giving speeches and attending conferences, saying, “Might their own carbon-profligate lifestyles undermine their moral authority to demand that coal miners, Teamsters working on oil pipelines and mining-dependent Native American tribes sacrifice their own economic well-being to fight climate change?”

Celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and politician-turned-activist Al Gore have also been called out for their do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do attitudes toward climate change initiatives. While both have been loud advocates for worldwide action on climate change, DiCaprio has been accused of jetting around the world to parties and having New York pizza shipped to his home in California, while Gore has received wide criticism for his Nashville mansion that burns 21 times more energy than the average American home. –The Blaze
Two years ago, Hollywood environmental spokesperson and hypocrite, Leonardo DiCaprio, posted a picture of the event on Instagram – on which he describes himself as an ‘actor and environmentalist – and wrote in the caption: ‘It was an honor to join Ralph Lauren, Robert De Niro, Robert F Kennedy Jr & more to support Riverkeeper’s critical work to create and protect a healthier future for millions of people.’
The actor, who said climate change was the ‘most urgent threat facing our entire species’ during his Oscar acceptance speech, has been repeatedly criticized for his use of jets and yachts.
Leonardo DiCaprio took a private jet twice to pick up an environmental award in New York – before flying back to Cannes, a glitzy gala in France.
he left the French Riviera for a brief trip to New York City, where he collected an honor at the Riverkeeper Fishermen’s Ball on Wednesday, Page Six reported.
He then hopped back on another private jet to attend the amfAR gala in Antibes, about eight miles from Cannes, just 24 hours later.
