Prince Charles: Genetic prophet

The Prince of Wails (spelling intended) is back in the news showing his vast dimwittedness. Seriously. How many of you think he knows ANYTHING about genes, DNA, genetics, and genomics? This guy is no more an authority on genetically-engineered food than Al Gore is on the climate. But that doesn't stop Prince Charles from making stupid predictions about genetic engineering or other complicated subjects for which he is no authority at all--like climate change.

Prince Charles stated a few months ago that we only have 18 months to go before global warming kills us all. At least we won’t have long to wait to laugh at his prediction, because he wasn’t smart enough to set it at a date that will be long after we’re all dead. At least the other climate alarmists set their doom predictions to a time beyond their own lifespan. Conveniently, no one will be left to call them out on their stupidity, so I hope this blog will hang around out there long enough in some form to do just that.

Prince Charles warns GM crops risk causing the biggest-ever environmental disaster

The mass development of genetically modified crops risks causing the world's worst environmental disaster, The Prince of Wales has warned.

In his most outspoken intervention on the issue of GM food, the Prince said that multi-national companies were conducting an experiment with nature which had gone "seriously wrong".

The Prince, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Telegraph, also expressed the fear that food would run out because of the damage being wreaked on the earth's soil by scientists' research.

He accused firms of conducting a "gigantic experiment I think with nature and the whole of humanity which has gone seriously wrong".

"Why else are we facing all these challenges, climate change and everything?"

The point Charles missed is that GM is for Monsanto to take ownership of everything.
