Leonardo DiCaprio, a wealthy Hollywood celebrity known for his lavish yachts and private jets, has apparently hit it off with teen climate change zealot Greta Thunberg.
On Friday the actor shared a photo to Instagram that showed him kicking it with the 16-year-old teen activist and captioned it with a sycophantic diatribe about how the troubled adolescent child is allegedly the “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,” he wrote. “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”

To be clear, the girl whom he’s labeled the veritable “leader” of the free world is a highly troubled child who’s been indoctrinated to genuinely believe that some imminent “mass extinction” event looms just around the corner for the inhabitants of Earth, and who’s now being exploited to promote the left’s radical climate change proposals.
And the fact that Thunberg has chosen DiCaprio as an ally in her zealous quest to stop impending doom further demonstrates how young and uninformed she really happens to be — given as the actor is one of the world’s most prolific individual polluters.
“For years his critics have noted his extensive usage of private jets to travel around the globe for both business and pleasure,” Forbes reported in 2016. “In 2014 he famously rented the world’s fifth largest yacht, owned by a UAE oil tycoon, to watch the World Cup in Brazil. In case you are wondering, neither the jets nor the yacht run on solar power.”
Yet despite all the justified criticism the actor has received over the years for his constant yacht vacations and private jet flights, not once has he actually changed his behavior.
Meanwhile, he’s continued to rant and rave about the alleged threats of climate change, as well as demean and disparage those whom he calls “climate change deniers.”
The hypocrisy has only further inflamed his critics:

It’s unclear if Thunberg is aware of this hypocrisy, though to be fair, she too has been credibly accused of being a raging hypocrite.
It’s also unclear whether she’s aware of DiCaprio’s “shady history of dating women much younger than” himself, as reported by Vulture magazine.
“In fact, your cutoff age was found to be 25 years old. 25!” the magazine critically reported Friday after the actor shared the photo of him and Thunberg. “Your current girlfriend, Camila Morrone, is as old as Titanic.”
“Forgive us if our natural instinct is suspicion when you’re spotted cozying up to a young blonde. This particular young blonde is one of the most important activists of her generation, so please let her go about her business undisturbed, Leo.”
Meanwhile, the actor’s teen “leader” is reportedly stuck in Los Angeles, desperate to find a “low-carbon” way to reach Spain for the upcoming 2019 United Nations Climate Change, aka COP25. She refuses to travel by plane, so her options are limited. It doesn’t help that the summit had originally been scheduled to occur in Chile, not Spain, ergo why she’s in LA.
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.

She reached the United States two months ago after traveling on an allegedly “zero-carbon yacht” that was, in fact, anything but “zero-carbon.”

Day 13. Rough seas south of Nova Scotia. But conditions closer to New York will be slower than predicted and weather update suggests Wednesday arrival – an updated ETA will come as we near the coast. pic.twitter.com/IY6L9InSnp
