Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has
declared war on Western industrial civilisation by funding and narrating a
series of short eco documentaries urging us all to leave fossil fuels in the
ground, cripple our economies with carbon taxes and embrace bird-frying,
bat-chomping renewable technologies such as solar and wind.
The first film in the series on Carbon – co-written by liberal activist
cum talk radio host Thom Hartmann – is riddled with basic errors, extremely
dubious propaganda claims, and flagrant politicking on behalf of the more
left-wing elements in the Obama administration. But DiCaprio may well have been
unable to afford a fact-checker, owing to the fact that he was paid just $10
million for his last movie The Wolf of Wall Street - a catastrophic drop in the
income he received for earlier movies, like Inception, for which he received
nearly $60 million.
Here are some of the simple mistakes DiCaprio would have
spotted, if only he had been able to scrape together the money for an
entry-level production team.
"Ancient life on earth. Over millions of years
plants and animals lived and died; that decomposed life sunk deep into the
ground and as a result an ancient menace was created: fossil fuels."
Er, about that phrase "ancient menace", Leo.
You're talking about the intense stored energy that made the Industrial
Revolution possible; that freed people from the backbreaking toil of
agrarianism and enabled the division of labour and technological advances that
led, inter alia, to the invention of cinema and the birth of your career.
Without fossil fuels your sorry ass would be nothing, DiCaprio - and all
your cutesy pop fans would still be slaving as dairy maids and gleaners, their
faces ravaged by cowpox. So a little more respect and perspective, pleas.
"97 per cent of climate scientists agree that
climate change is happening and caused by human activity."
No they don't. Which dork fed you that line? Joe Romm? Thom
Hartmann? Whoever it was, get your lawyers on the case and sue the arse off him
for having made you look such an ignorant pillock. Here is why the 97
per cent figure is not to be taken seriously.
"They drill, they extract making trillions of
You talk about making large sums of money like it's a bad
thing, Leo. Can we assume from this that in future, you'll be doing all your
movies for the minimum wage to show your solidarity with the world's poor,
exploited and oppressed? Oh, and by the way, that graphic your people slipped
in at this point showing "chemical waste" leaking into the water
table as a result of fracking: this is just an urban myth promulgated by people
like the Russians and the Middle Eastern oil despots to deny the US energy
"We need to keep this carbon in the ground."
Yes, that'll work. Cancel economic growth. Make energy
unaffordable. Kill jobs. Everyone will love this and there won't be any riots
or revolutions or anything like that. Everyone will see it makes sense because
the bloke who plays the guy who stood with Kate Winslet on the prow of the
Titanic told them so in a whiny bitch voice in a crappy eco documentary.
"We no longer need the dead economy of the fossil
No, that's right. We need vibrant, renewable-energy-based
economies, like the ones causing 50 per cent youth unemployment in Spain and
Portugal; like the ones that is turning Germany - once the envy of the
industrial world - into a Venezuelan-style fail.
"We can move our economy town by town, state by
state, to renewable energy and a sustainable future."
Ah. You're talking about Local Agenda 21 - the route by
which greenie-lefty activists infiltrate local governments and impose their
anti-capitalist, anti-democratic, misanthropic new world order on innocent
taxpayers whether they like it or not. You people have virtually ruined
California; now you want to take the rest of the world down with you too. Well,
it's good to know where you stand Leo and we'll be sure to bear it in mind next
time we're debating whether to go and see your latest movie or whether to opt
for some pure quality like maybe Sharknado 2.

"A new idea is first condemned as ridiculous, and then dismissed as trivial, until finally it becomes what everybody knows." -
"This is the real task before us: to reassert our commitment as a nation to a law higher than our own, to renew our spiritual strength. Only by building a wall of such spiritual resolve can we, as a free people, hope to protect our own heritage and make it someday the birthright of all men." --Ronald Reagan
A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government." -- Edward Abbey
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks nothing worth a war, is worse. A man who has nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety is a miserable creature who has no chance at being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." John Stuart Mill
"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." ~~~George Washington

“A nation that substitutes emotion and empathy for rational thought will eventually digress into the Dark Ages,” Congressman Steve King (R-IA),
INTEGRITY: The highest courage is to dare to be ourself in the face of adversity. Choosing ethics over convenience and truth over popularity means there is never a wrong time to do the right thing.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
They may be more likely to go to Heaven for good intentions yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.~ C. S. Lewis
