DiCaprio Film’s 426,000 Kilogram Carbon Footprint

Private jet-setting Leonardo DiCaprio has finally won an Oscar, and used his speech to enlighten us once again about the perils of global warming:

“Making The Revenant was about man’s relationship with the natural world, a world that we collectively felt in 2015 as the hottest year in recorded history. Our production needed to move to the Southern tip of this planet just to be able to find snow. Climate change is real, it is happening right now… and we need to work collectively together and stop procrastinating.”

Leo’s call for collective action must have been ignored by the makers of The Revenant. Shot 93% on location in Montana, Canada, and Argentina, the film required 438 members of its cast, crew, and production team to travel with them. An economy return flight from LAX to Edmonton, Alberta, leaves a carbon footprint of about 0.35 tonnes. When multiplied by the 438 on-set staff this equals 153 tonnes.

The carbon footprint for the Argentina leg comes in at a whopping 1.44 tonnes per return journey. Overall Guido’s stats bods estimate the Revenant’s total carbon footprint would be approximately 469.6 tonnes, or 426,000 kilograms. Oh, and the director also ordered an aerial bombardment of Canada’s Fortress Mountain to create an avalanche for one scene. Very environmentally friendly…

Quote of the Day

Logging company Resolute’s CEO Richard Garneau suing Greenpeace

“A funny thing happened when Greenpeace and allies were forced to account for their claims in court. They started changing their tune. Their condemnations of our forestry practices “do not hew to strict literalism or scientific precision,” as they concede in their latest legal filings. Their accusations against Resolute were instead “hyperbole,” “heated rhetoric,” and “non-verifiable statements of subjective opinion” that should not be taken “literally” or expose them to any legal liability. These are sober admissions after years of irresponsible attacks.”
