With Iraq on the brink, John Kerry draws a red line on the oceans with help from Leonardo DiCaprio

Two prominent figures are in Washington, DC attempting to save the oceans. One of the men is best known for playing a lead role in a convincing re-creation of the Titanic sinking. The other is Leonardo DiCaprio.

Kerry and DiCaprio are taking part in the State Department’s “Our Oceans” event, because there’s nothing else in particular happening in the world at the moment that a U.S. secretary of state should be fully focused on.

Here’s video of star-struck Kerry’s reaction when DiCaprio entered the room:

This morning Kerry took questions on Twitter about climate change and the oceans. Read Kerry’s Twitter feed if you’re hungry for a buffet of apocalyptic, fear-mongering predictions that make the Book of Revelation sound like a Shel Silverstein poem.

Somebody asked Kerry about his priorities. Kerry’s answer? “But international security!”

So you see, by turning “climate change” into a blanket issue of international security, you can spend a couple of days hanging out with Leonardo DiCaprio and Bill Nye and claim you are doing something about current crises around the world.

Kerry is also addressing the issue of carbon footprints. No, not his:

In winter, he goes helicopter skiing while staying at his wife’s Idaho retreat, a 15th-century farmhouse transported from England and reassembled on the banks of the Big Wood River in Sun Valley. In summer, he windsurfs and sails off the coast of Nantucket, where she has another home. The couple have an 18th-century town house in Boston where the kitchen is two stories high. There is a 23-room town house in Washington, an 88-acre Pittsburgh area estate, a private Gulfstream jet and a personal staff of six, including caretakers and a cook.

Totally random idea for any inventors out there: A car that runs on hypocrisy and ketchup.

Anyway, Bill Nye the Science Guy warned deniers that unless we want to have more storms that have existed since the beginning of time, we all better pony up for the cause:

And these “solutions” to climate change are cheap?

As for DiCaprio, this week he’s getting a heck of a view from which to save the oceans from the ravages of man-made climate change — from the deck of a “superyacht” owned by Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The Abu Dhabi royal family is reportedly worth about $90 billion, and they didn’t earn all that by selling eco-friendly solar panels. But I suspect DiCaprio already knows that and is willing to look the other way in order to borrow such a choice boat.

The promoter of “green living” was shuttled from Brazil to DC for the “Our Oceans” event and back to the superyacht via Chevy Volt, apparently.
