Who gives a flying fig what terrifies that air-headed high school dropout?
Like all frontier gold rush areas, there is an element of terror involved.
Movie stars....is there anything they don’t know?
Did he walk to the location... or did he fly?
The history channel is breathlessly promoting Leo’s “blockbuster” documentary this week (presented without commercial interruptions, so as not to deter anyone with a short attention span).
The oil sands pay for Canada’s welfare state
“Catch Me If You Can” was his best fake (er acting) job because it reflected his personal credibility. Maroon!

Dicrapio.. Gore 2.0
Only good scene he was in was at the end of Titanic when he sunk to the bottom of the ocean, every guy in the theater cheered.
And just what does his 450’ yacht run on?
Carbon-free whale blubber.
Sailing along while he indulges in Spotted Owl wings and tuna-safe dolphin hors d'oeuvres.
It’s a Mine.
It’s SUPPOSED to look like that.
The rest of the 99.99999% of the earth does not look like that.
We don’t need 100% of the Earth to look ‘pristine’ if we are ever going to have industry.
Where is his movie documenting the making of electric car batteries?
O Leo, guess where the diesel fuel for that gigantic yacht you rented for the Olympics came from?
(IIRC second largest private yacht in the world)
