Royal twit wails again

By the blogowner, honestclimate, March 22, 2009

Pop quizz:

Who is he?

-He employs two butlers, three chefs, two chauffeurs, one valet, five housekeepers and managers, and eight gardeners.

-His servant loads his toothbrush just the way he likes it and, on one occasion, had to hold a urine specimen jar for him.

-He’s never done an honest days work in his life.

-He is a man who left his beautiful, young wife to be with his horse.

-Also, he flies around the world in a private jet trying to convince us to lower our carbon footprints.

If you guessed Prince Charles you would be correct.

Here is the latest from the Prince of Wails Wales:

Prince Charles blue over green crusade

LONDON, (AFP) – Prince Charles, the heir to the British throne, admitted in an interview published Sunday that he found it “depressing” that his frequent warnings over climate change had not been heeded.

The Prince of Wales added, though, that he was “delighted” that it seemed people had begun to realise that he had in fact been ringing the alarm over a serious issue and not “complete nonsense”.

“All I have been trying to do is remind people that we have to live and work in harmony with nature if we are to have any chance of surviving on this planet,” Charles told the Sunday Telegraph in the Galapagos Islands at the end of a 10-day tour of South America.

Asked if he was frustrated his warnings had not been taken seriously, he replied: “It is depressing. I am not doing this for myself but, as I keep saying, for everyone’s children and our grandchildren.”

Charles added, however, that “if now people are beginning to realise perhaps, after all, I wasn’t talking complete nonsense, then I am delighted.”

While in Brazil earlier this month, Charles said the current global financial crisis is “nothing” compared to the long-term impact of climate change, telling a meeting of Brazilian business leaders and officials: “We are, I fear, at a defining moment in the world’s history.”

Well Charlie boy, you have a carbon footprint the size of Africa, is it any wonder nobody takes you seriously??

Prince Charles launches climate change appeal in Chile whilst leaving a 322-tonne carbon footprint

By the blogowner, honestclimate March 11, 2009

The Prince wails again about climate change:

SANTIAGO (AFP) – Britain’s Prince Charles made an urgent appeal to raise awareness of climate change when visiting Chile’s capital during a Latin American tour.

“Facing these remarkable evidence of climate change, I’m afraid I must insist that if we want to leave our children a better world, we must act together, and we must act now,” the heir to the British throne said at dinner hosted by President Michelle Bachelet in his honor at La Moneda Palace late Monday.

….

But the prince’s trip has had some criticism in the British press, with the newspaper saying he was using a hired private Airbus jet to fly just 14 people on his visit, leaving a 322-tonne carbon footprint.

Britains “top climate scientist” declares we have only 100 months left to save the planet

By the blogowner, honestclimate, March 9, 2009

I married my horse!

The Prince of Wales is to issue a stark warning that nations have “less than 100 months to act” to save the planet from irreversible damage due to climate change.

BACKGROUND

THE Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall began their ten-day tour of South America yesterday with the issue of climate change at the top of their agenda.

Prince Charles and Camilla arrived in Chile, but they will also visit Brazil, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands. Highlighting the issue of global warming is a major theme, and this week the prince will give a dire warning on climate change to the world.

Their chartered Airbus arrived at Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez airport close to Santiago. They were driven away in a limousine, followed by a motorcade of six cars.
