Liberal celebrities and journalists maintain telling us that it’s “too late” save the Earth from the approaching local weather change horror. Nicely, on this week’s FLASHBACK we discovered film star Leonardo DiCaprio worrying that very factor 4 years in the past. On January 7, 2016, ABC’s Good Morning America used a baby as a prop to stress about polar bears and international warming.
However first, the Titanic star appeared on the January 7 version of Charlie Rose. Reflecting on the 2015 local weather convention in Paris, the jet-setting actor pontificated, “The large query is are we too late? That is been the pondering query for everybody. I do know we must always all stay optimistic and I need to stay optimistic.” (It seems, 4 years later, sure, the world nonetheless appears okay.)
Rose, who was not but disgraced at that time over sexual misconduct allegations, didn’t query DiCaprio on his personal carbon-creating life-style, taking six private jets in six weeks.
On the identical day, the January 7, 2016 Good Morning America, co-host Lara Spencer highlighted an emotional baby frightened that international warming would maintain polar bears from consuming. Spencer talked to Bernadette Woods Placky of the web site Local weather Central and hyperventilated: “Is that this the type of factor that individuals who stay on the shoreline ought to be panicking and shifting inland?”
Embracing the thought of manipulating kids, Spencer performed this clip of just a little lady: “I actually need the polar bears to have meals to eat in order that they will not be – in order that they gained’t be hurting. I do not know methods to repair it and I actually need to.”
As Joe Biden takes workplace, be ready for one more costly international warming push that liberals within the media and in Hollywood will aggressively assist.

LEONARDO DICAPRIO: The large query is are we too late? That is been the pondering query for everybody. I do know we must always all stay optimistic and I need to stay optimistic.
CHARLIE ROSE: However you have been frightened that we’re too late. That one way or the other we have completed a lot harm we will by no means —
LEONARDO DICAPRIO: The reply to that’s in anyone else’s fingers. However we do know that the scientific neighborhood has been screaming out loud for many years. And different pursuits have stifled their voice and manipulated this dialog. And it is an actual disgrace. However one factor I am pleased with, that for the primary time, we have seen the world neighborhood take this difficulty severely.
And in the event that they hadn’t, there could be completely no hope. We won’t wait one other 4 years for individuals to begin to hearken to 99 p.c of the scientific neighborhood. I imply, it is an absurdity. And it isn’t in regards to the particular person anymore. It is about we. It is about we as a species, as a world neighborhood, lastly coming collectively to make some type of progress ahead. Whether or not we’re too late or not stays to be seen. However you already know, I am simply very blissful as an environmentalist to see one thing occur in the fitting route.
