(FLASHBACK:) "Dumbass" Leonardo DiCaprio thinks a chinook is "global warming"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In an interview with Variety, movie star Leonardo DiCaprio raved that he'd experienced "global warming" first hand while filming in Calgary.

He says he was shocked and "terrified" when a "sudden warm gust of wind" melted "eight feet of snow."

As a Calgary native, I'm happy to explain what a "chinook" is to "weather expert" and climate change activist DiCaprio.

It's a natural weather phenomenon that gives Calgarians a break from winter:

Some people go skiing in shorts, for example. It's awesome.

DiCaprio is lying when he says he was afraid of this change in weather, and lying when he said the locals were, too.

As the owner of luxury boats and jets, he's also lying when he says he cares about carbon footprints and climate change.

But he's an actor and a high school dropout. The (non-Canadian) media printed DiCaprio's story at face value, because they're in the tank for "global warming," so they're not much better.

The Canadian media, though? They had a great time mocking DiCaprio, except...

What's up with the Calgary Herald's hypocrisy?

DeCapio lectures us on how we must live our lives, then jumps into his fossil fuel guzzling limo, drives over to his fossil fuel guzzling private jet and flies back to his fossil fuel guzzling super yacht, and dines on exotic foods flown in from all over the world in one of his fossil fuel guzzling over sized carbon foot print mansions. It is incredible that anyone could take this super hypocrite with his goofy man-bun,seriously.

Many thousands of years ago the Indians named the winds “chinook” which means in their language “snoweater”. Alberta and the Western States experience 30 to 35 chinooks each year even in the summertime. Don’t be so gullible – 97% is only the U.N. 100 scientists The balance of the main stream scientists of 37,500 of which 65% of our 51,000 scientists keep telling us it is not proven. Why because the earth itself is undergoing major changes which will change the climate and has nothing to do with humans. These changes are frightening but it is out of man’s control so instead of making such unintelligent. uninformed and stupid remarks start doing your own research. Dr. Timothy Ball was taken to the Supreme Court of B.C. by two U.N. scientists to shut him up but the U.N. scientists had no prove whatsoever on global warming/climate change so they lost their case and now owe Dr. Ball 10 million dollars. If you can’t produce scientific prove of global warming/climate change to support your own Court case. then it can’t exist.

So he doesn’t know what a chinook is. Global warming is still real.

CO2 is a greenhouse gas. We are putting more of it into the atmosphere. It’s only a little more complicated than 2+2.

And the notion that an environmentalist has to go back to the stone age before they have the right to advocate for sensible actions to mitigate AGW risk is just plain and simply retarded. Similarly, I do not demand that you volunteer to go to the front lines for the fact of advocating some particular foreign military policy.

Terrified at a warm gust of wind during a Canadian winter? Sounds like Leo doesn’t know a blessing from a hole in the ground.

In any case, he’s a good actor. Actually, he makes great movies – I think of one that I didn’t enjoy.

And Leo is a very, very wealthy man. Personal wealth has been pegged at over $30 million, which will likely only grow since his win. So, he has access to all kinds of luxurious treats: giant yachts, private planes, palatial estates, tons and tons of free gifts, and an entourage of Eastern European models. He’s a latter day Hugh Heffner.

And they had to go south to find snow? Really? Cocaine really is a hell of a drug.

Oh, and Shawnee, kjust because you preface your comment with the word “Facts:” does not make what follows a fact.

@ Shawnee Wind Dancer

None of what you stated is a fact. But since you believe what you said, prove it.

Prove what you posted with the evidence. Make sure thought that when you post a link to that evidence, you do not post any opinion articles. No commentaries please, just facts.

Facts: the world is warmer, c02 levels are high, sea levels are higher, ice surface is lower.
Your opionion: you enjoy the ice melting so who the fuck could be worried about it.

DiCaprio must know more than a thing or two about global warming since he was the producer of Cowspiracy which is showing on Netflix. The documentary talks about pollution and global warming. I am sure some of you have seen it.

No more of a “dumbass” than your article.

He is an Actor, he says whatever he gets paid to say, it’s called acting, nothing to do with reality. The real question is who is paying him to say what he is saying. I would wager it wouldn’t be too hard to find out.

Marcia Hatt – most scientists have sold out to the lies regarding global warming. I guess they would rather live high on the hog in this world, and be roasting on a spit in the next one.

MARCIA HATT , until sheep can debate, I will not engage.

First of all, He told what he noticed. It can not be his fault if he said chinook phenomena as global warming. Anyone who could have seen 7 feet snow melting suddenly by blow of warm wind, have thought the same. And may be he is somewhat right, what if the chinook is more severe in present times. It shows his consistent approach towards global warming activism which is a real threat. And one of the proof of it being a threat is mathematical. Whenever there is some source , there has to be a sink. And humans have not organized any systematic sink for their unsystematic exponentially growing material structures. Certain effective responsive measures need to be taken before nature’s safety valve burst out and take our species in the aftermath. Leonardo DiCaprio is never a dumb ass, the only dumb ass I am seeing on this page is you (the writer of this column ). And thanks to this article, I am never gonna read your shitty articles ever again because you don’t have sense of writing appropriately. You are a fagot who just wants to get read or listened to because you have found something to mock and ridicule on, instead of highlighting proper issues.

Do some science. Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.

MARCIA HATT, it’s too bad that the records only go back less than 200 years. Mideavil warm period, Roman warm period: ring any bells? Do some research.
commented 2015-12-12 18:20:36 -0500
But is it not a fact that record highs are being recorded? This winter is predicted to be the warmest Canadian winter on record….. Dumbass.

Are you kidding me?? Oh, and Leo did you know that not only do we have those terrifying chinooks in Alberta, the name came with the fur traders long before the industrial revolution. What a lying sack of s*&t like the rest of our eco-captors.

Di-crappy-oh should stay in his own isolated little back yard & leave these matters to able minded adults. Stick to acting little boy. Perhaps if his career is in a lull he could start a protest to clean up the oil sands operation in California which are WAY more filthy than anything you could possibly find in Alberta.

Leo would fit right into the liberal cabinet, dumb as a bag of hammers but very good at delivering other people’s words.

Thank-you, Steve for that interpretation. I, too, think that Liberace Dicaprio’s bun is a little too tight.

The Rebel.Media Party makes Albertans out to be a joke.
Global warming is no joke.

Maybe he should loosen his pony tail for better blood flow to his brain. Dumbass as a descriptive for Duh Caprio is actually too kind.
commented 2015-12-11 20:49:37 -0500
There is some truth if you take those words “climate change” at face value; anybody living in Alberta understands, hour-to-hour, day-to-day climate change. But, of course, he means that he witnessed man-made global warming. Shows you the depth of the argument for this man-made hoax!

If this doesn’t demonstrate the level of intellect that is pushing the global warming charade, nothing will…

Global warming?


He obviously gets by on drugs and no common sense

Global warming or Global Governance? That is the title of a Vid on the Utube and is worth watching.
Anyone who believes in Man made global warming is an idiot, for a start, global temperatures have remained roughly the same for the last 20 years. The Marxist at the UN are saying that Global temperatures started to fall in 2014, which is a lie. They are beginning to realize that people are beginning to notice their scam and are trying to alter the temperature back to where it should be.(In the graphs)

The Marxist who are trying to ruin this Country, along with some of their Provincial friends, will ignore all the true evidence and go ahead with Carbon Tax, regardless. This is to be expected from these shysters.

Don’t you hate it, when you know you are being cheated and can do nothing about it.
