Prince Charles: Climate trumps economy

Prince-CharlesThe Royal Moron speaks once more. He's really smart...like Al Gore...so we should definitely listen to him. First, he called us skeptics insane, and then he furthered his brilliance by declaring we only had 18 months to avoid disaster (he made this prediction back in May of this year, so our time is rapidly running out). Finally, he made other predictions about another subject he's equally unqualified to comment on--genetics.

We should heed the advice extracted from the vast wisdom of Charles, because he's heavily educated in climatology and received his Ph.D. from...oh, sorry, he has no Ph.D. in any science, and neither does Al Gore. Charles also divorced Diana for Camilla. Nothing more needs to be said.

Don't listen to morons, no matter how famous they are. But remember...this is right out of the liberal playbook first espoused by Bill Clinton: We must slow the economy to fight global warming. Don't believe that doom garbage.

Prince Charles says climate the real crisis | The Daily Telegraph:

BRITAIN'S Prince Charles has urged the world today to fight climate change, saying that while the global credit crunch may be temporary, the effects of the "climate crunch" were irreversible.

The heir to the British throne issued his appeal on a visit to Tokyo, where he and his wife Camilla are marking the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Britain.

"Given the current turbulence in the international financial system and the immediate and damaging effect it is having on the whole world, the credit crunch is rightly a preoccupation of vast significance and importance,'' Charles said.

"But we take our eye off the 'climate crunch' at our peril,'' he said in a speech at Japan's National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation.

"While we hope and pray that the underlying strengths of the global economy will once again enable it to bounce back, the effects of climate change will be far from temporary and will, indeed, be irreversible,'' he said.

Global markets have been battered in recent weeks by a global crunch in credit as some of the world's top financial institutions crumble under the weight of toxic subprime housing loans.

Charles, who has long championed environmental causes, cited predictions by UN scientists that temperatures could rise by more than six degrees Celsius by 2100 if no action is taken.

He called it a "level unprecedented in human experience.''

Rising sea levels would "threaten the survival of coastal cities such as Tokyo, London and indeed New York,'' the prince said.
