Climate Hypocrites in the media

Don't you just hate hypocrites, especially in the media? Promoting poverty and austerity for the majority of us while ignoring the lifestyles of media darlings. I puke every time I see the DiCaprio / Travolta / Huffington (Huff post) / Matt Damon / James Cameron (movie director) / etc lovvies telling the rest of the world to be poor and love it.
Avatar Director James Cameron warned of a future “world that’s in shambles” because of climate change, and said he believes “in ecoterrorism” yet, he owns an impressive private collection of motorcycles, cars, dirt bikes, a yacht, a helicopter, a Humvee fire truck and a $32-million submarine. ABC and CBS even praised Cameron for his submarine purchase, with CBS’s Gayle King saying she loved his “passion and curiosity.”

Leonardo DiCaprio ironically stood in front of the UN warning that “if we do not act together, we will surely perish” – just three months after he had flown to Brazil on a private plane to borrow an oil billionaire’s 470-foot yacht. Yet, ABC News praised him for “not just talking the talk.”
