 As we know, Prince Harry wants us all to wake up to the challenge of global warming, and give up all of our little luxuries.

Apparently though this does not extend to his newly found showbiz friends in California!

    Huh! That’s all? US Climate Envoy John Kerry still has his own (well, his Heinz heiress wife’s) private jet. He even flew to Iceland in it to collect an Environmental Award..

    “Do as I say, not as I do” should be tattooed on the foreheads of all of these woke hypocrites. Form an orderly queue Harry, Meghan, Emma Thompson, Bill Gates…….add as many more as you care to mention.
    On another topic, yesterday, after many years, I finally switched off “The Archers”. It has been on increasingly thin ice for years but yesterday’s propaganda on man-made climate change was the last straw. The Beeb really is losing it.

    It must be tough living in Hawaii and having to ‘zoom’ to California and back by jet rather than internet like the plebs do.

    It is a pity Prince Harry and Meghan didn’t move to Texas and have a taste of the future….Their liberal woke friends have too much influence when it comes to important infrastructure issues. We need common sense decisions made by people like the guy in this interview.
    Well worth a listen to Sid Miller’s telephone interview with Fox News laying it on the line what happens when you don’t take a reliable electricity supply seriously. Note his comments on where the electricity is coming from, at the end of the interview.

      Can you imagine the electricity bill they would face for the mansion they would expect to live in if they were in Texas – on a smart meter?

        Those outsize power bills were for a tiny tiny number of home consumers on ‘wholesale spot pricing’ based power plans. The vast majority are like you and me on fixed price or vary by month ( in advance)
        Their supplier told those people the previous week, a big cold snap is coming, change your plan now as spot prices will go through the roof.
        A similar company where I live had the same type of pricing some years back, they too went out of business as the occasional spot price peaks will blow away any minor day to day savings.

        Yes, as I understand a few people had opted for “wholesale price” related plans, and got burned.

        I gather the power companies even advised them to switch before the freeze up, but understandably other companies were too busy to sign up new customers!

    I’m one of those people who believe that global warming is a con, so in a way I’m pleased that celebrities do this sort of thing because it dilutes their credibility

    If Harry no longer performs a royal role, what is the source of his income? Surely if he performs no public service he is no longer being paid from public taxation. Or am I being too naive? .

      The Sun reports that Harry and Me-ghan have pocketed $12 million and $171 million deals!

      I think his Dad agreed to send him a few quid if he gets hard up. The Crown Estates are making a killing from offshore wind turbine leases now on offer and the Royals get a percent of that income: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jul/17/offshore-wind-auction-could-raise-millions-for-queen

      The Crown Estate, which manages the monarch’s property portfolio, holds exclusive rights to lease the seabed around the British Isles for wind and wave power. Its profits go to the Treasury, which then sends 25% back to the royal household in the form of the sovereign grant.

      The Crown Estate does not make its forecasts public. However, if the government’s 2030 target is met, the Queen [or King Charles, or King William, probably not King Harry] could be collecting more than £100m a year within a decade.”

      https://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/940818/bp-s-entry-into-uk-offshore-wind-sector-points-to-higher-electricity-costs-940818.html

      “Britain’s BP PLC (LON:BP.) and French oil supermajor Total emerged as surprise winners in an auction that saw huge interest in the auction organised by the Crown Estate.

      The contracts awarded were worth £879m ($1.2bn) per year, or £111m per gigawatt per year, it added which “represent a very significant sum for developers. In comparison, developing and constructing a 1GW offshore wind farm currently requires investment of around £2.5bn.”

      Observers said that ultimately these higher seabed costs will be passed onto customers through higher electricity prices.

      BP’s new chief executive Bernard Looney (sic!) has set out an ambitious plan for the group to grow renewable power generation to 50Gw by 2030 from 3.3Gw currently.

      Under the awards yesterday, BP and EnBW will each pay around £1bn in fees for the project before an investment decision (FID).

      RWE paid the lowest for its bid at £82,552 pounds per megawatt (Mw) per year, while BP and EnBW are paying £154,000 per Mw per year for the leases.”

        £20-40/MWh just for the leases – more if they get substantially curtailed. I’m sure Prof Gordon Hughes will have noted this.

    LOLROTF. Harry and Me-ghan again reveal themselves to be lowlives focused on being in the public eye and making a buck. In whining to Oprah, they’re preaching to the converted. I refrain from reading about/watching these idiots on news media in the hope that they will finally fade into private life, as they originally and falsely claimed was their aim. We should be so lucky!

      They are making a buck, whats wrong with that. They never said they were going to ‘fade away’ at all. It was always going to join the top level celebrity circuit and make a living that way. They no longer get funded by the UK taxpayers and rely on inherited money from Diana and the Queen Mum and some of Princes Charles dosh.
      Its not my thing listening to their ‘messages’ , but they arent aimed at my demographic. They correctly worked out that the US is far more open to this sort of hustle and money made reflects it.

    I shan’t be wasting any energy watching them. Does that make me a greenie?

    A period of silence from Harry and wife would be more than welcome.
    Have they not made enough money from talking to while damaging the Monarchy?

    They might risk our switching to a titular presidency so as to fulfil the likely ambition of Tony Blair or the last House of Commons Speaker, for fire examples.

      Coorrection of typos above :talking ROT; for DIRE examples.

      How have they damaged the monarchy? Considering the personal behavior of certain individuals over the years who were ‘working royals’ has had far greater impact. They clearly dont want to spent their time ‘on the job’ on mindless ceremony and only asking ” have you come far”. Its tabloid froth that says they are damaging anything. Any parent could tell you , the children can have minds of their own and working for the family firm can be stifling.
      As for the clear hypocrisy about private jets and saving the planet, the better to show its absurdity but Im not holding my breath.
