Leo DiCaprio Gives Up Oil Sheikh’s Super-Yacht to Walk in NYC #ClimateMarch Parade
Leonardo DiCaprio took over the world’s fifth largest yacht to watch the world cup in Brazil this year. The 482-foot Topaz, worth £400million, is owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emitates and owner of Manchester City FC.
DiCaprio took over an oil sheikh’s super-yacht to treat his friends to the World Cup.
DiCaprio was appointed the UN’s climate change ambassador this past week.
The LA Times reported:
The “Wolf of Wall Street” star was bestowed the rather weighty-sounding title of “Messenger of Peace” on Tuesday, courtesy of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
“Honored to accept at this key moment for #Climate2014,” DiCaprio tweeted, alluding to the U.N. Climate Summit set for Sept. 23 in New York, where he’s been invited to speak.
“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history — it is a moment for action,” he said in a longer statement given to the United Nations. “How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”
DiCaprio will march today in the New York City Climate March.
At home, Dicaprio tries to survive on the bare essentials.
