Prince Charles: saving the planet “a grandfather’s duty”
Sunday Telegraph (UK) ^ | 2:10PM GMT 06 Jan 2013 | Victoria Ward

Posted on 01/06/2013 6:12:26 PM PST by Olog-hai

The Prince of Wales has disclosed that the prospect of becoming a grandfather has reinforced his environmental beliefs because he does not want to “hand on an increasingly dysfunctional world”.

The Prince, an outspoken campaigner on environmental issues, told ITV’s This Morning that he did not want the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s child, due to be born this summer, to ask him why he had not done more to tackle issues like climate change. …

Charles has been a strong advocate of taking action to protect the environment for many years. In 2007 he set up The Prince’s Rainforest Group to find a solution to save the world’s threatened forests. He addressed a UN international climate summit in Copenhagen in 2009 and the following year he gave a keynote speech to the Oslo Climate and Forest Conference. …

I’m very glad Barmy Prince Charlie has something worthwhile to do in his retirement. I certainly hope Chuckie and Al can save us from the weather. (snicker)

"Stand up Chuck"! You're an idiot!

So let's see, Prince Charles creates another meaningless, useless idiots Rainforest Group in 2007, then gives a speech in 2009 to the UN climate idiots, and then gives a keynote speech to the Oslo Climate and Forest Conference in 2010. …

Wow Chuckie! A Rainforest Group & 2 speeches all done since 2007. Better dial it back down, you're overworking yourself. Plus you're a lunatic idiot yourself!

He needs at least one accomplishment
in his useless life. He is probably
deeply invested in the scam as Algore
and hoping to benefit from our loss.

Hunh. Around here, the grandfather’s job is to teach orienteering, firearm safety and hunting skills. I guess my husband is doing it all wrong.

At least Al Gore does it for the money. He’s made a pile of it pushing this stuff.

Prince Charles, on the other hand, seems to have an IQ of about 50. He’s never done anything sensible in his life, as far as I can see.

Once when commenting about the Royal Family,Eddie Izzard observed that it's a bad idea when cousins marry because it causes the IQ to go right down the toilet.I think Charles is living proof of the validity of that comment.

Charles, Charles... as long as plate tectonics and subduction keeps going, the planet will be fine. A couple of billion years from now, no-one will know we were here.

It's not like we're importing poison from off the planet, or exporting water off the planet. Everything God put here is still right here.

The planet is cleaner than it’s ever been, the air is cleaner, our cities are practically spotless compared to the cities of the middle ages. People are living 2 to 3 times longer than 200 years ago, our drinking water is nearly perfect and there are more trees in the US today than in 1492.

These people don’t know what the heck they are talking about.

“Prince Charles, on the other hand, seems to have an IQ of about 50. He’s never done anything sensible in his life, as far as I can see.”

Tidbit from Wiki:

Military training and career

Following royal tradition, Charles served in the navy and air force. After requesting and receiving Royal Air Force training during his second year at Cambridge, on 8 March 1971 he flew himself to the Royal Air Force College Cranwell to train as a jet pilot. Following the passing-out parade that September, he embarked on a naval career, enrolling in a six-week course at the Royal Naval College Dartmouth and then serving on the guided missile destroyer HMS Norfolk (1971–1972) and the frigates HMS Minerva (1972–1973) and HMS Jupiter (1974). He also qualified as a helicopter pilot at RNAS Yeovilton in 1974, just prior to joining 845 Naval Air Squadron, operating from HMS Hermes. On 9 February 1976, he took command of the coastal minehunter HMS Bronington for his last ten months serving actively in the navy. He learned to fly on a Chipmunk basic pilot trainer, a BAC Jet Provost jet trainer, and a Beagle Basset multi-engine trainer; he then regularly flew the Hawker Siddeley Andover, Westland Wessex and BAe 146 aircraft of The Queen’s Flight.
