UKIP Slam Prince Charles Climate Scaremongering

November 24, 2015

By Paul Homewood 




Prince Charles’ latest foray on climate change has already been thoroughly mocked and debunked, by bloggers and a few others.

However, there has always been a slavishly, reverential reluctance to criticise anything he says by mainstream media or other official sources. Well, no more!

UKIP have now issued an official statement, which is highly critical of the Prince, as Breitbart report:


The UK Independence Party (UKIP) has taken the extraordinary step of publicly blasting Britain’s monarch-in-waiting, Prince Charles, after comments he made about Syria and migration being linked to climate change.

Speaking to Sky News, the Prince of Wales, who is next in line to the British throne, said: “There’s very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria, funnily enough, was a drought that lasted for about five or six years, which meant that huge numbers of people in the end had to leave the land.”

But UKIP have hit back, in a statement attributed to a party spokesman, who alludes to the fact that Prince Charles is both a hypocrite over his private jet uses and motorcades – and indeed should be using his influence in the world to keep Britain safe, rather than promoting the left-wing climate change agenda.

The UKIP spokesman commented: “Prince Charles will likely fly once again by private jet to Paris and be picked up by a convoy of gas guzzling motorcars in order to preach about cutting carbon emissions.

“At the start of this year he and Camilla were hosted by the Saudi Royal Family to use his special relationship with the monarchy to promote British interests. Perhaps he will use those connections to encourage the oil rich Gulf states to help tackle the threat from Islamic extremism and play their part in helping refugees in the region.

“Links between terror cells in Saudi Arabia and Islamic State are well established, and it is documented that a vast amount of funding for extremism is also coming from inside Saudi Arabia. Rather than make frankly ludicrous comments about climate change leading to Middle Eastern conflict, he actually has the right connections to say and do something useful.”


While Prince Charles’s comments are not out of the ordinary for him, his involvement in political matters is becoming more heavily scrutinised with many believing his ascent to the throne is imminent.

One critic told Breitbart London: “Well all I can say is… God Save The Queen… and God help us if Prince Charles becomes King.”

    Well, as a long term despiser of UKIP I have yet again to agree with their energy policy and the statements above.

    Saudi Arabian funding and US policy are the root cause of ISIL’s existence. The tragedy caused to Syrian people has absolutely nothing to do with climate.

    The clown prince looks to be setting himself up for being king….. OMG.

      I think that is why HRH isn’t in any hurry to”Pas The Batton”to her son.She knows he’s a “Nutter”

    I am old enough to remember when the mentally infirm were sent to live in great big houses in the country. During the day they were allowed out to wander (and wonder too perhaps) in large gardens and talk to themselves and the plants. They were looked after by large numbers of kindly staff. All paid for the state. To be honest I feel it was a good and gentle way to treat them.

    Nothing appears to have changed for at least one of them.

    Euan Mearns has a considered response to this: with some research referenced in the comnments which seeks to contradict his argument.

    It would seem that national and international water management, geopolitical population pressures and national/regional politics/war have more to do with it than CC.

    But, of course those factors are not easily encapsulated in a scary headline, or even a ‘black spider’ letter from HRH.

      You might have mentioned the government of Syria which operates by fiat rather than by law. Lack of employment opportunities was the most cited reason for the civil war until some climate fanatic got the bright idea that drought was the cause of the revolt.

      The immediate casus belli was the arrest and raping of teenage boys by security police after they had inscribed anti-government graffiti in a public place.

        Isn’t it interesting that the Arab spring didn’t effect Saudi Arabia, that centre of tolerance and fairness. Oh, don’t they have a royal family too!

    As a lifelong royalist and supporter of HMQ I will seriously consider becoming a republican if PC ever becomes king.

    I’ve never thought “Chuckles” was the brightest bulb on the tree. He keeps me continually in that mode.

    Wonder if Prince Charles still talks to the plants and what their answer would be on co2 emissions ?

    • November 24, 2015 7:25 pm

      The plants would be doing a high 5 and singing, “oh, we love more CO2, that’s why we grew a slew.” Bad poetry, but you get the point.

    Charles of course isn’t alone.

    In the run up to the COP21 meeting in Paris, the BBC and all sorts of others in the mainstream media are full of the unsupported and outlandish statements of supposed dire effects of global warming.

    We should just recognize all of this for what it is and take it all with an extra large pinch of salt.

      Channel 4 News is in Bangladesh. Yesterday it was about rising sea levels drowning the country, and farmers having to turn to fishing to make a living. Today it was about the polluting brick works, and the growing solar panel industry. They should read the INDC. Emissions are projected to increase by 264% between 2010 and 2030, and even massive funding will make very little difference to growth

    The attribution of the civil war in Syria to “climate change” shows how unscientific nature and shallowness of belief in global warming.
    For drought to tip over into civil unrest there must be some adverse human consequences. The mere fact of a drought – which Roger Andrews shows did not exist – is not necessarily going to cause the degree of human suffering that could trigger civil war. An example of where this did happen was in Eritrea in 1984. But the extent of the famine was vastly exacerbated by the policies of the Ethiopian Government who were busily collectivizing the farms, and then expropriating most of the crops to feed the city.
    On the other hand, you do not need a drought (or other major cause of crop failure) to cause a famine. Indian born economist Amartya Sen showed that the Bengal Famine of 1943 was not due to a drop in food production, but due to human factors. In the case of Bengal food prices were driven up by the British Army buying up the food to feed the troops in Burma, and a ban on trade between the Indian States prevented relief.
    For drought to have been a cause of conflict, it is necessary to show that there were human consequences. Where was the rise in food prices? Where was the hunger in a middle income country? Where were the food riots, or protests by farmers, triggering a civil war?

    I disagree with climate change having a left-wing agenda. It’s got all party support.
    Right-wingers use it to justify very steep tax on fuel and energy in general – both are flat taxes, Thatcher’s dream.
    Greens and Liberals love it.
    It appeals to the internationalism in Marx’s left-wing novels.
    We’ve got intensified heat waves, poorer air quality, more severe storms over big urban areas and millions are affected by it, today, not 100 years down the line.

    Global warning, why does nobody mention the biggest contribution to the problem are gases and dust from Volcanoes which account for some 70% of the worlds air pollution as any geology student will conform.

    November 26, 2015 12:26 am Much as I would like to vilfiy his opinions HRH is a patron of many NGOs such as charities which have a global warming agenda. It is probably not possible for him to brush aside the everlasting mutterings of these agencies which do not always have any scientific backing. Noblesse Oblige and so on.
