Leonardo DiCaprio to Speak at State Department’s ‘Our Ocean’ Conference

by Andrea Seikaly

Leonardo DiCaprio is set to speak at the State Department’s “Our Ocean” conference Tuesday morning.

Secretary of State John Kerry will introduce DiCaprio, who will speak immediately after a video appearance by President Obama.

“I’m pleased that Leo DiCaprio is lending his powerful voice to our call to action to work together to protect the world’s ocean,” said Secretary Kerry.

Kerry invited the “Wolf of Wall Street” star to the conference because of the dedication that he and his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation have demonstrated in efforts to protects the world’s oceans and the environment. In February, the DiCaprio Foundation awarded the advocacy group Oceana a $3 million grant to protect the ocean habitat and vital marine species.

Well he did drown in an ocean themed movie, so I guess he’s an expert.

The 147 metre vessel was custom-built for Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed bin Sultan bin Zayed bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, minister of presidential affairs and member of the ruling family of Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Mansour’s vast business portfolio also includes stakes in Virgin Galactic and Sky News Arabia. He also heads the International Petroleum Investment Company, which owns 71 percent of Aabar Investments and has a 9.1 percent share in Daimler.

I guess his drowning in “Titanic” qualifies him as an expert.

FWIW, I broke out in applause in the movie theater when Leo sunk to the bottom of the Atlantic.

Why are other-wise “talented” people so off the rails when it comes to reality?

He's left a bigger footprint on the ocean in an afternoon than I will in my lifetime.

Maybe he should just STFU.

I think he went body surfing once, so he has actually touched the water in the ocean. It's along the same line as how John Kerry's heroic exploits in Viet Nam and Cambodia have equipped him to be the Secretary of State. < /sarc

Ted Danson has since admitted that he (lied) “was engaging in dramatic hyperole” about the oceans dying. He said he HAD to so that people would pay attention.

Meanwhile the HCUAA investigations were branded “hysteria” and “dangerous” for outing Commie sympathizers in the media, academia, and State Department.

Go F yourself Mr. Danson...

Danson said in 1992 that the world only had 10 years left to do something.

Yep, but he has since come clean that he was engaging in “hyperbole”.

Same with John Kerry’s lies to Congress about committing and witnessing warcrimes. He now calls those the over dramatic expressions of an angry young man.

I heard “Rocket Man’ on the radio this morning so I think I’m qualified to testify on behalf of NASA.

I also saw “Who Killed the Electric Car” so I’m going to fill in as head excuse maker for Barra on the latest GM recalls.
