TAKE ACTION Growth in aviation threatens the Planet, celebrities flying in private jets are no friend to the environment, and shared climate sacrifice means the super-rich must swear off jet- setting ways //www.climateark.org/alerts/send.asp?id=leonardo_convenient_environmentalist

The rise in demand for air travel is one of the most serious environmental threats facing the Earth. Global aviation's negative impact upon global climate and ecology is becoming more evident and known. Aviation accounts for about 2% of world emissions of carbon dioxide, over 6% in the U.K. and other over- developed countries, and projected passenger growth of five percent a year means airplane emissions are growing more rapidly than any other source. Air transport contributes disproportionately heavily to global warming, as carbon dioxide and water vapor emitted at high altitude are four times more potent than at sea level... The "Camp for Climate Action" outside London's Heathrow airport is this week highlighting aviation's centrality to fighting global warming. Heathrow is the world's busiest airport and a bigger source of CO2 emissions than most countries, yet the airport's capacity is to be doubled by building a third runway... The danger of "celebrity environmentalism" is clear as the launch of Leonardo DiCaprio’s eco-documentary entitled "The 11th Hour" coincides with the Heathrow aviation protests. Mr. DiCaprio glibly defends his and other celebrity's use of private jets, and despite a solar powered house and hybrid car, all his personal efforts to reduce his carbon footprint are shattered by a jet-setting lifestyle. Clearly addressing climate change and other global ecological crises will require shared sacrifice and a reduction in consumption by many... Let Leo know that the battle to stop the growth in aviation's greenhouse gas emission is one the most important environmental battles ever that require his personal example... Let him know you will see his movie if he swears off private jets.
