Brian is at it again.
The Prince of Wales has warned of the “catastrophic” consequences of inaction on issues such as climate change, at a UN sustainability conference in Brazil.
Trans: Brian’s mummy failed to fall off her Thames barge and drown step down in favour of her idiot son rightful and deserving heir. In the absence of gainful employment he’s going to continue making sure the lives of hoi polloi become as intolerable as possible by escalating actions to price them out of the essential living commodities market. Meanwhile he’ll be doing all the things he’s insisting no one else should (and most can’t afford to) do – living in massive houses with humongous carbon footprints, flying around the world delivering sanctimonious speeches, driving a fleet of grossly expensive, fuel guzzling cars and having an unhealthy interest in tampons (shome mishtake shurely? – Ed). It’s what hypocrites do best after all.
Prince Charles said he had “watched in despair” at the slow pace of progress on the “critical issues of the day,” in a pre-recorded video address in Rio.
Obviously the issue of a fast paced growth demographic of Her Britannic Majesty’s subjects falling into fuel poverty and risking death by hypothermia during the next harsh winter (despite warmist insistence that snowy winters are a thing of the past) isn’t critical enough. Meet your future monarch, folks. He cares more about apocryphal global catastrophism and endangered slime molds than he cares about you. Alternatively he could be as mad as a box of frogs on speed. Or maybe both.
He urged world leaders to adopt a more integrated approach to issues such as climate change and food security.
An integrated approach to climate change? Like what? Mass standing still with hands on hips insisting that the climate had jolly well better behave or else Brian will report it to Nanny? And why not? It would have as much impact on the climate as the renewable energy nonsense and be a whole lot less harmful. As for food security, maybe the Prince of Fails should lead by example and stop charging wallet emptying prices for the fare produced by his Duchy Originals business. If the wibbling fool truly believes in food security then maybe he should be lecturing the corporate thugs running the biofuels industry which threatens food security by reducing the production of food crops, sends the price of staple foods soaring and dispossesses the poor. Even warmists and 99 per centers recognise there is a problem. It’s everywhere, even in this country. All those thousands of hectares of yellow rapeseed displacing food crops. I have a slogan for Brian – Wheat, not (taxpayer) rape.
Waiting for the worst to happen would be “too late to act at all”, he said.
Because his Credibility Thermogeddon Clock is ticking? How long has he have we got left? Sixty months? Less? We are in End Times but only the government funded scam merchants, the intellectually stunted, the socially engineered and the grasping politicians have noticed? For Scammell truck’s sake can you please get a grip, Brian!
Rio+20, the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, is attended by heads of state and representatives from governments, non-governmental organisations and the private sector.
In his address, the prince said scientific evidence showed the potential consequences of ignoring the risks.
Yes, we’ve seen what passes for “evidence”. Here’s the latest drama surrounding robust AGW consensus proof. A wrecked economy and shambolic energy security are the actual consequences of NOT ignoring the far from proven and highly unlikely risks of human induced, global thermageddon.
“Like a sleepwalker, we seem unable to wake up to the fact that so many of the catastrophic consequences of carrying on with ‘business-as-usual’ are bearing down on us faster than we think, already dragging many millions more people into poverty and dangerously weakening global food, water and energy security for the future,” he said.
And what, pray tell, are these catastrophic consequences? Rising sea levels? Melting ice caps? Hundreds of thousands of starving and homeless people fleeing the heat blistered Topics? A disrupted thermohaline current? Drowning polar bears? No more snow? No more rain? All driven by rising levels of atmospheric plant food?
Earth calling Brian. Earth calling Brian. The carbon dioxide apocalypse you are so worried about – it ain’t happening!
One thing is clear. We need to be much more informed about the actual state of the planet.
Something Brian clearly isn’t.
We do not have nearly enough knowledge on which to base the decisions that will be the best for the long term.
So Brian’s warmist friends invent a consensus based on lies, the building blocks upon which greedy authoritarian governments construct their delusional decisions. And we mugs those same greedy authoritarian governments pay them handsomely for it while useful idiots like Brian cheer them on.
Until we do, we expose ourselves to the mounting danger of major shifts in policy that are not well conceived, but come as panicked responses to crises that could have been avoided.
He’s got it! By George old Brian’s got it!
He said the “outright, sceptical reluctance” by some to engage with these issues had often slowed progress “to a standstill”.
It’s not the sceptics that are reluctant to engage with these issues. Sceptics would love to engage. We want to point out that the one thing of importance that has come to a standstill is global warming. A growing number of warmists have acknowledged that warming inconveniently effectively halted fifteen years ago. Brian needs to play some serious catch-up and stop listening to the eco-lunacy drivel WWF and Greenpeace he’s being drip-fed. After all, even his dad, a patron of WWF, finally saw the light about the uselessness of wind turbines.
Pointing to the work of his International Sustainability Unit, a foundation set up to campaign on global sustainability, the prince said a better picture of environmental problems was needed before effective policy could be implemented.
Meanwhile Brian despairs at the slow pace of progress? He wants a “better picture” but is insisting we should immediately implement policies conceived by panicked responses built on shonky science and to heck with the consequences? Damn right sceptics are reluctant and do everything to halt to progress of this BS.
He said data on energy, water, biodiversity, forestry and soil, which is collected separately, needed to be combined and analysed as a whole.
Why? So government funded climatologists can corrupt or even lose the data?
“If this could happen, at least then we would know what the state of the planet actually is – and then plan accordingly,” he said.
There’s nothing wrong with the planet. It isn’t doing anything it hasn’t done before. What’s happening with the climate is neither unprecedented nor extreme. It’s been far hotter in the past. Stop trying to fix what isn’t broken!
He went on: “We do not have long to capture such a comprehensive picture, and so I would appeal to you as you meet here in Rio to make an even greater and concerted effort to persuade policy and decision-makers to act before it is finally too late.
Brian, you wouldn’t appeal to me if you were dipped in chocolate and encrusted in diamonds so please, shut the Scammell up because your ignorance is going to kill people.
“It is, perhaps, a trait of human nature to act only when the worst happens, but that is not a trait we can afford to rely on here.
It’s also a trait of human nature to point out the bleeding obvious. Warming has ceased. We stand a greater chance of being wiped out by an asteroid strike. What does Brian recommend we do about that? Buy Duchy Original tinfoil hats? There’ll be plenty going spare once the climate penny drops…
“Once the worst does happen, I am afraid that this time around it will be too late to act at all.”
This time around? So it’s happened before then? Gosh, I must have dozed off and missed it. I’ll be sure to set my clock for 2017. Wouldn’t want to miss out on such a monumental event as the end of civilisation as we know it – a second time.
