Prince Charles: Forget 18 Months…We Now Have 100 Months Until Doom!

Okay, let’s examine this closely. Last year, Prince Charles issued one of his many brilliant global warming predictions: “We have 18-months until doom.” This was not his first goofy soothsaying utterance or his last. He’s been actively prophesying of late, and he’s managed to sound almost as dumb as Al Gore. He has basically adopted Gore’s lengthier end-of-days prediction, which has a comparable number of years remaining before we all burn to a crisp under the strain of too many cow and car poots. I can’t believe I’m actually having to get on here and try to convince people of how dumb all this BS is. Never mind…yes, I can believe it.

What’s even more interesting here is that it becomes blatantly obvious that the media isn’t doing its job; our media—as an equitable watchdog of ALL political stripes—is now non-existent. They’ve basically “forgotten” the Prince’s earlier 18-month doom prediction and will now accept, without question, his new forecast, which has expanded the period preceding prophesied doom by a factor of more than five. Why isn’t the media calling him out on this obvious, incredible change in timescale? Why aren’t they asking him how he is professionally qualified to make changing predictions about the coming apocalypse? The same reason they aren’t asking Al Gore the same questions!

Well, in much the same way that the media practically chanted for Obama’s election, we’ve seen that the media is an open advocate for global warming theory as a reality (because of the political advantages it affords), and the media typically attacks or ignores anyone who attempts to discredit global warming (no matter how credible or correct they sound). In short, our mainstream media is now opinionated and agenda-driven; they barely even hide that fact anymore, and only occasionally do they emanate a tacit denial of bias. Their actions don’t match their words. ‘I don’t believe in global warming’ draws gasps of incredulity and leaves the “offender” to stand on his own and draw invectives from faithful alarmists (e.g., ‘deniers are insane’) who are always portrayed as the bringers of truth, with few willing to point out how that denier just might be right.

Don’t forget…Prince Charles was one of those goofballs who was screaming for a weaker economy to fight global warming, along with Bill Clinton and Obama’s Secretary Geithner. Well, now they’ve got what they wanted! So why isn’t the media asking them: “In terms of global warming, are you now pleased that the economy is in recession? Will this save the Earth?” Figure it out for yourself—why won’t the media do its damn job?!

Prince Charles: 100 months to save the world

Prince Charles will say that the need to tackle global warming is more urgent than ever before and that, even in a global recession, the world must not lose sight of the "bigger picture".

His warning will be delivered on Thursday in a keynote speech in Rio de Janeiro.

Aides believe it will echo one he gave in Sao Paulo in 1991 at the start of the last recession, when he warned that caring for the world's long term welfare must not become a "luxury".
