Charles Calls For Emissions To Be Kept At COVID Levels

So he expects us to maintain emissions at the current rate? What planet does he live on?

 

Hasn’t it occurred to the twerp that millions are sat at home instead of working? Estimates put the number on furlough at over 6 million in the UK, on top of some 2 million out of work completely. That’s a quarter of the workforce.

Meanwhile government borrowing last month was £62bn. That’s equivalent to about a third of GDP.

Across the world, other countries are going through exactly the same economic collapse.

How does the Prince of Wallies suggest we maintain emissions at today’s levels without making our current economic crisis a permanent one?

And what effect does he think that will have on society, when millions are thrown onto the scrapheap?

    You gotta say, the lad’s consistent!
    Consistently wrong, consistently pushing the GreenBlob agenda and permanently lost up there on ‘Planet Chuckie’.

      Consistently travelling around the world using fossil fuels, then moaning about them.

      His ginger “son” appears to be trying to outdo his father in the climate virtue signalling stakes or is he just overly influenced by relatively recently introduced malevolence? I am a monarchist but dear god this pair do nothing to aid the cause!

    “How does the Prince of Wallies suggest we maintain emissions at today’s levels without making our current economic crisis a permanent one?”

    More to the point, how does anyone, Prince or politician, expect to lower (and store) even some of the CO2 we have already added in order to get to Net-zero by 2050?

    When Charles starts commuting to his gigs on a bike, rather than by helicopter or chauffeured Limo, I might think he’s not a hypocrite.
    Another of the Cummings do as i say not as i do elitists school.
    Boris confirmed that all law is advisory only, so we make a point of getting together and shaking hands with everyone we meet.

    Since H RH Prince Charles, unlike his mother, does not understand the monarchcy’s vital need
    to keep out of politics, he should step aside and enter private life.

      Isn’t He surprising? He noticed that something was out of ordinary.

      Perhaps you missed it when William also spouted ignorant global warming drivel so it might not be that much of an improvement. Queen Anne the Second perhaps?

    Even his mother thinks he’s extravagant. His latest foray into the ether was to describe the sheer joy he felt, aged seven, when his equally extravagant grandma took him to the Bolshoi ballet. He thinks this would also inspire today’s youth.
    Without wishing to denigrate the performing arts, he really doesn’t know how the other 95% live, never mind the other 50%.

    “The GDP figure in 2019 was $2,824,850 million, leaving United Kingdom placed 5th in the ranking of GDP of the 196 countries that we publish.” https://countryeconomy.com/gdp/uk
    That is £2,321,888,280 or over 2.3 trillion Pounds Sterling. So yes, “government borrowing last month was £62bn. That’s equivalent to about a third of GDP.” monthly.
    What bothers me is that the whole ruling class does not appear to understand basic first year university economics. They do not understand underlying facts and quantification. Between Climate Emergency current and future expenditure and Covid19 economy shutdown we are heading towards bankruptcy.

    There should be a law – Commoners should be permitted to emit as much CO2 per year as Prince Chuck, but no more than that.

    I don’t think poor Chaz has the brains to make the link between the productivity of fossil fuels and the freeing up of money/time/human energy and creativity to indulge in his favourite frivolous luxuries.

    This call to keep fossil fuel use at the current/lock down levels is absurd…. unless you want to stagnate the world’s economy. Notice how it’s the Western/industrial countries alone that are requesting it?

    I noticed he is calling for a new “inclusive” form of capitalism.
    Coming from a member of the world’s most exclusive club, this indicates that self-reflection is not his strong suit.

    Sir David Attenborough said the coronavirus pandemic has swept the problem of climate change from the front pages and that it must be put back there and he praised Greta Thunberg for galvanising the youth and following the science – all this and more related verbatim for DT readers along with a report that the Prince of Wales is calling on world leaders to capitalise on the “unique but narrow window” to put “planet and people first” in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. In the same edition we read about ‘a particular headache for public health officials, scientists and politicians as Wales and especially the old mining communities has proportionally almost twice the number of cases of the coronavirus as the rest of the UK while mortality rates in and around the Rhondda Valley have also been among the very highest in the country’. Just read that again – a particular headache caused to officials – what? We are talking people and lives here. The DT reports ‘There is an older, sicker population and the history of coalmining and heavy industry means there are people with breathing problems that the coronavirus is particularly likely to affect. The Welsh Valleys are tight-knit communities, in which generations of families still live in homes together, leaving older people susceptible; obesity rates are high and so too smoking along with lung diseases contracted in the mines.’ Surely this is where investment must be made giving communities such as these opportunities to make improvements to their lives. How spoilt I feel having lived in the Southeast all my life.

    In a few years time it will be unconstitutional for him to blather politics. The beeb would no doubt -argue that greenbabble is not political because there’s an all-party consensus. Would the existence of a sceptic party losing a few deposits destroy that argument? It would be worth it just to shut him up.

    Paul, you asked a few questions at the end of your piece but forgot the most important one: “what difference would it make anyway?”

    The great myth is levels of global CO2 are higher today than when they first started recording the data. https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/

    If, as the IPCC say, CO2 is a well mixed gas in the atmosphere, how can the levels be measured lower. As their fundamental science suggests CO2 is a well mixed gas, who is lying?

    In relation to CO2 and temperatures, how come temperatures have not dropped 17% along with the decline in CO2 levels?

    Why can’t the greenblob see their own lies.

      They are mainly a Rentacrowd mob, a manifestation of troublemaking for their kicks, exemplified by ERebellion, whose motives have nothing to do with human wellbeing and everything with weird fun. At best a distraction from useful, productive activities.
      Not even as healthily natural as the hippies.
      Drearily boring wasters.
      Best ignored or hosed with (slightly)dirty water.

      It’s a claimed drop in emissions – of which there are still lots man-made and natural. Emissions still exceed adsorptions, atmospheric levels are still rising overall – natural seasonal effects mean it rises and falls in an annual cycle within the general increase. You cannot have a % of a temperature – although weather forecasters often say things like the temperature will be half tomorrow what it was today. The effect of CO2 is logarithmic. If going from 350 to 700ppm caused 1C of warming, you’d have to go to 1400PPM to get another 1C (ignoring other factors/feedback). CO2 is well mixed in the atmosphere, although if a really massive amount (measurable PPM) were released/absorbed at one location obviously it would take a while to stabilize globally. It doesn’t mean measured PPMs at all points in the atmosphere are identical all the time.

    Neil,

    the 17% is not true.
    Or perhaps I should say that it is misleading as it is 17% of our circa 5% of man made CO2 emissions.
    The CO2 monitoring site at Muona Loa in Hawaii has not recorded any drop in CO2 levels in the atmosphere, they are still on an upward trend. Could that be an indication that the 5% is actually much smaller? It surely indicates the futility of even Europe’s quest for net zero?

      Ian, according to the IPCC suggest total man-made emissions are 3% of total atmospheric CO2. The UK, it is said contributes 1% of the 3%. So, 0.0416% x 3% x 1%= 0.00000125%

    He just wants to build more subsidy generators on Crown Estates land / seabed, farming money out of the peasants for the next 25 years, just like the rest of the billionaire investors in this scam.

      John and James don’t have a good track record either.

      For those in South Britain.
      John Baliol= Toom Tabard
      James I = held captive in England for 18 years, assassinated at Perth 1437
      James II = killed by exploding cannon Roxburgh Castle in 1460
      James III = Killed 1488, when the king faced the army raised by the disaffected nobles and many former councillors at the Battle of Sauchieburn
      James IV = Killed Flodden 1513 along with a large number of Scottish nobles
      James V = Died of Fever in 1542 shortly after Battle of Solway Moss
      James VI = the wisest fool in Christendom
      James VII = Died in exile
