Prince Charles: ‘Irma and Maria Are Wake Up Calls About Global Warming’

Prince Charles has been making an idiot of himself again…

From ITV News:

Prince Charles tells ITV News why ocean threats have him fearing for his and the world’s grandchildren

Prince Charles has said he’s speaking out about the threat to the world’s oceans because he worries about his own grandchildren – and grandchildren everywhere.

The prince has been speaking to ITV News in Malta where world leaders and scientists are attending the Our Oceans conference.

He has urged the world to turn its attention to the failing health of the oceans or risk our own survival.

Asked if he worried about the world the generation of Prince George and Princess Charlotte will inherit, he said he was doing it for everyone’s grandchildren.

Over-fishing, plastic pollution, and acidification are all combining to threaten our own survival, he said.

And he warned that plastic in the oceans is now in the human food chain.

Every year eight million tonnes of plastic enter the sea and he urged consumers to think about buying drinks and water in single-use plastic bottles

Evidence of the threat from the oceans has already been seen in recent storms, he said, such as the hurricane which devastated parts of the Caribbean and Florida.

We risk “ever more damaging and terrifying storms”, he warned, and the ferocity of hurricanes such as Irma and Maria was a “wake up call” about the threat of ocean warming.

Perhaps someone should tell him that there is nothing unusual at all about Irma and Maria.

So far this year, there have been four major Atlantic hurricanes, yet there were eight in 1950.

Prince Charles shows a combination of moral superiority and a belief that he knows more than us ordinary folk.

It might help if he actually practiced what he preached. Instead, he sees nothing wrong in taking freebie holidays on billionaires’ superyachts in the Med.

The sad thing is that his comments about global warming detract from very real issues of pollution.

He has been campaigning about eco issues for many years now but does not seem to acknowledge that, in the Western world at least, the environment is immeasurably better than it used to be.

Our air and cities are much cleaner than they have ever been. This is something we should all be proud of.

Campaigning for less plastic in our seas is fine, but his involvement in global warming is political as it is an attempt to tell us all how we should live.
From a constitutional point of view, this is strictly a no-no.

But if he wants to get involved, perhaps he ought to start by getting his facts right.

    Bonnie Prince Charlie is at it again.
    Maybe he’s seeking a nomination for the

    IGNOBLE Peace Prize.

    Or, maybe he’s just been hitting the bottle again.

    “Ocean acidification by CO2” is another Chicken Little story. It took more than 200 years for the ocean to move from a pH of 8.25 to a pH of 8.14. Pure water is pH 7.00.
    I’d ask the dizzy heir to the throne why he prefers to swim in lye. I do know that he once mused of being Camilla ‘s tampon.
    The lazy – minded masses might believe that water with a pH of 8.14 will rip their faces off. Rain has a pH of less than 6. Their idle minds are ripe for exploitation.

    Those castle walls and towers will ensure none of his grand children
    little tootsies will ever get wet .
    It’s fair to assume the Prince thinks climate changes and it’s warming too . The Prince would have something to fret about if it was cooling and one thing for sure Mother Nature isn’t about to give up her day job over cow farts and Rolls Royce emissions .
    It’s great the Prince is concerned about the environment but
    pumping the tires of the most over blown fraud in history says
    a lot his reasoning and judgement . Could be career limiting .

      He’s a vegan, so he’d never eat a methane -passing cow. Perish the image.
      BTW, I have yet to see proof that Prince Charles visits his grand children. Probably all for the best.

    Out here in the colonies we excitedly anticipate every one of the prince’s passing comments. Then we get out little notebooks out and, like so many obedient North-Korean flunkies, we preserve all the prince’s pearls of wisdom for posterity.

    Meanwhile, back in realityland, the September 2017 temperature anomaly was the highest EVER for a non El Nino month and 2017 is likely to make the past 4 years the warmest 4 years on record.

      Hard to tell when promoting CAGW depends on lowering previous temperature records.

        Easy to tell when corroborated by JAXA, NOAA, NASA, BESS, RSS, UAH, and HadCRU.

          The warmest years on record? Who writes the records? You listed the historical data censors, the Hide the Decline gang.
          Not only that, Earth has been warmer in the past, before the industrial age and coal mines.

            I just listed who writes the records. If you like, you can include Anthony Watts of WUWT who did a major study on the temperature recording stations in the US to show how unreliable station temperatures were. His conclusions only bolstered those records of NOAA and NASA. Oopsy

            BTW, The BEST study was funded by denialists and supported by them until, of course, it also supported the accurracy of NOAA and NASA. Oopsy again.

      Trying to get back to the article before J.P etc. hijacked it, does anyone, other than J.P., support the idiotic simpletonia of the prince’s proclamations? Were it not for his inherited status, he would have had to peddle some other worthless ideas, without anybody noticing any of it. Moreover, anyone who does not know the difference between climate and weather does not deserve a hearing.

    They were very happy to use temperature data from stations affected by urban sprawl. That fit their warming theory back then. Now in order to keep the fever climbing, they decide that those readings need fixing , or else the warming stops. Data manipulation is necessary to “chase” their climate models ‘ exaggeration .

    Sticking weather stations at the end of jet engine runways and on asphalt ensures this fake news about” record ” temperatures and when it doesn’t send the data to NOAA to “adjust ” the results .
    Glad to hear the warming continues . We can get all scared when the next ice age starts but until then keep that plant fertilizer coming . The notion humans can or should control the earth’s temperature through a trace gas making up less than 1/2 percent of the atmosphere is Looney.

    I agree with the “plastic pollution” .. that is indeed a serious problem that I wish we would work to resolve. However, this idea that the ocean’s can “acidify” is utterly ridiculous. One need only do the simple math to realize “ocean acidification” is IMPOSSIBLE! … the top 3 meters of ocean contain as much CO2 as ALL of the atmosphere above it. The average depth of the oceans that cover some 72% of the Earth’s surface is 4 kilometers. ALL of the CO2 in the atmosphere could be dissolved into our oceans and we could not even measure the change in PH.

    In most sincere wish,

    GOD SAVE THE QUEEN !

    So how soon will Prince Chucky be making his own sacrifices and live in a cave with some trolls and eat his peas with a knife?
