    Why did Leo get an award?
    for the biggest hypocrit around .. that would be a tie with the rest of the hollywood greenie tree hugger crowd but ONLY Leo boy caused a plane load of fans to miss a World Cup final while he was getting VIP treatment at the airport in his private jet. which by the way burns as many of the so precious carbons in one trip as any of us regular folks use up in a year.

    Do any of you laughable a– hats ever consider practicing the crap you preach or is it that you really know that man does not have any effect on climate change and you are just jumping on the bandwagon of this cause because everyone else in Hollywood has said so and it is the thing to do right or wrong.
