Yes! Divest! Except, don’t ask him about the carbon footprint of celebrities, because that’s not cool. From yesterday’s big climate march
Hulk Actor: Questioning Gore & DiCaprio’s carbon footprint ‘defies the spirit’ of the climate march http://t.co/DY5sS2LweC

Is it too much for Hulk to ask Al Gore and Leonard DiCaprio to divest themselves from their private jets and yachts?
More from the interview between Hulk and Cimate Depot:
During the media availability press event, Ruffalo was asked in a one-on-one interview with Climate Depot if celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, who boasts that he will fly around the world to fight global warming and former VP Al Gore, are the best spokesmen for global warming given their huge carbon footprints. (See: Leo DiCaprio: ‘The Argument Is Over. Climate Change Is Happening Now’)
“Oh brother. That is a question you shouldn’t be asking here today because that defies the spirit of what this is about,” Ruffalo told Climate Depot. The interview was conducted for the upcoming climate documentary Climate Hustle.
Oh, brother is right. The hypocrisy, it burns!
Too bad Climate Depot didn’t ask Ruffalo about Al Gore’s sale of Current TV to the Qatari government’s Al Jazeera network. Give back that dirty money, hey Al? Do it for Hulk!
