In a post to Instagram, Hollywood actor and private jet travel aficionado Leonardo DiCaprio called 16-year-old Greta Thunberg a “leader of our time:
There are few times in human history where voices are amplified at such pivotal moments and in such transformational ways – but @GretaThunberg has become a leader of our time. History will judge us for what we do today to help guarantee that future generations can enjoy the same livable planet that we have so clearly taken for granted. I hope that Greta’s message is a wake-up call to world leaders everywhere that the time for inaction is over. It is because of Greta, and young activists everywhere that I am optimistic about what the future holds. It was an honor to spend time with Greta. She and I have made a commitment to support one another, in hopes of securing a brighter future for our planet. #FridaysforFuture #ClimateStrike @fridaysforfuture
As we told you on Friday, Thunberg, who refused to travel by air because of a jet’s carbon emissions, is currently trapped in America because the climate conference she was traveling to in Chile as moved to Spain and she has not boat lined up to make the trip:
As #COP25 has officially been moved from Santiago to Madrid I’ll need some help.
It turns out I’ve traveled half around the world, the wrong way:)
Now I need to find a way to cross the Atlantic in November… If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful.

Too bad she can’t borrow Leo’s jet!
Actor Leonardo DiCaprio scolded President Trump and "climate change deniers" over the weekend… Then boarded his eco-unfriendly private jet right after. https://t.co/bbrhjWVuEx

And why didn’t she call him out for his destruction of the planet?

This is pretty bad:
DailyMail: 'Leonardo DiCaprio the 'eco warrior' flew on a private jet from NY to LA SIX times in SIX weeks, Sony hack documents reveal.'
