AGW Ignorance Depresses Prince Charles
Last week Prince Charles said that our current financial crisis was “nothing ” compared to the horrors of global warming. This week he says it is “depressing” that his ravings about climate change have not been heeded.
Prince Charles is flying around South America in a private jet and giving speeches about being depressed about global warming. Yes he is. Really.
This from Agence France-Presse:
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,'' Prince Charles told Brittan’s 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.''
The Prince added that "if now people are beginning to realise perhaps, after all, I wasn't talking complete nonsense, then I am delighted.''
Try parsing that last sentence. “If now people are beginning to realise perhaps, after all, I wasn't talking complete nonsense, then I am delighted.''
Apparently, his Royal Highness is a mighty easy prince to delight. Any words he speaks that are heard by other human beings, any words spoken that are short of complete nonsense, make him very, very happy.
Here is a suggestion for the Prince: If you want to be truly, utterly, absolutely, immeasurably ecstatic then cut out the nonsense altogether … just stop talking about global warming.
And enjoy (guilt free) your jet.
