Harry is making a strong for Hypocrite of The Year Award!!

The Duke of Sussex has been labelled a "hypocrite" for choosing to take the two-hour flight back to his mansion in Montecito via the £45million Gulfstream jet. He boarded the 20-seater plane, which is believed to belong to one of his friends, U.S. businessman Marc Ganzi.

Royal author Tom Quinn said this move "appears to be enormously hypocritical" given the 36-year-old royal’s talk about climate change. He told The Sun that it is a "huge blind spot" for the duke who "seems to see himself as someone who guides the rest of the world and that his own behaviour isn’t relevant."

The online community also bashed Prince Harry with one Twitter user calling him a "total hypocrite" and another claiming he relied on "privilege."

"Yesterday Prince Harry took a private jet home from a polo match — after lecturing us all about how climate change is one of the world’s "most pressing issues. A total hypocrite. Elite environmentalism is about telling the little people to know their place," the user wrote.

In May, Prince Harry told Oprah Winfrey that mental health and climate change are two of society’s "most pressing issues." He acknowledged that people "are doing as best they can to try and fix these issues." He also talked about its damaging effects to the generations to come.

"With kids growing up in today’s world, pretty depressing, right, depending on where you live, your home country is either on fire, it’s either underwater, houses or forests are being flattened," he said in his interview in his Apple TV+ documentary.

Prince Harry has reportedly made four trips via private jet in 11 days despite his stance against the effect of CO2 emissions on the climate. A single jet alone can emit two tonnes of CO2 in an hour. His flight to Aspen was for a charity polo match for his co-founded Sentebale charity. Ironically, he also took a private jet to a climate change summit in Sicily. It is said that in 2019 alone he took six private jet flights.

    There used to be a Prince Harry. Is he now a Prince with no duties?

    In reality, neither he nor his carbon dioxide emissions will have any significant impact.

    Hypocrisy is hereditary amongst the Windsors:

    What’s shocking is that too many politicians seem to believe these “celebrity” climatologists, like Greta and this Prince guy. Hollywood experts. Late night comedians. They are all hypocrites. Why?

      They wish to keep their positions in society or their jobs. To be received and not shunned or excluded.
      To do this they must appear to conform to the Norm .

    Please see below copy of today’s to Express.

    Greening the future – or conning the kids?

    Children from MPs’ constituencies around the country are sending ‘their own “Parliamentary” message on climate change to world leaders at the COP26 conference later this year’, with ‘650 youngsters aged seven to 13’ representing their constituencies ‘as part of the UK’s first online Children’s Parliament.’ Half the children will represent ‘Her Majesty’s Government and the other half Her Majesty’s Opposition’, and the ‘virtual parliamentary session will be held in a House of Commons-style “chamber”” where they ‘will debate and vote on the environemtnal issues that matter to them – alongside Covid-19 and technology.’

    With David Amess, Conservative MP for Southend West as its Parliamentary “champion”, and with the participation of pupils from the Saint Pierre School in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, the project is backed by ‘British online educational platform Wakelet https://wakelet.com/about and also Microsoft; entitled ‘This House Matters’, it is ‘seen as critical to teach children about the value of democracy’, asking each child the question ‘What animal would you most miss if it became extinct due to climate change?’ (‘We’re not playing at politics’, Daily Express, August 28, 2021). https://www.express.co.uk/ourpaper/view/2021-08-28 https://www.childrensparliament.org.uk/climate-change-for-the-climate-assembly/

    Presented as an issue above party politics, caring for the environment has become a quasi religion with its own commandments, its saints and sinners, its priests and prophets (and prophetesses, notably Greta Thunberg); however, it is deeply political, having serious ramifications not only for children, but for those who care for them: people who are old enough to vote and to pay the bills, aka adults. Indeed, so terrifying are those ramifications – at the very least, the abandonment of modern industry, travel and agriculture in order to cut CO2 emissions – that those who promote the ‘green’ agenda are anxious that the full facts are not revealed lest there be a public backlash. https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2021/08/07/information-tribunal-orders-committee-on-climate-change-to-reveal-net-zero-calculations/ https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2021/08/08/boris-johnsons-push-for-net-zero-plunged-into-chaos-as-treasury-baulk-at-the-cost/

    No wonder they are trying to appeal to the very youngest amongst us, before they grow older and more cynical and have to pay bills. By priming them with fears that all the animals are ‘going extinct’ and that ‘everything is running out’, perhaps the organisers are hoping they will apply ‘pester power’ to parents so they cease to question the Green narrative.

    This might be the only way this scare campaign could gain traction, and their ‘children’s parliament’ is not democracy but a simulacrum of democracy – a mere facade designed to disguise the fact that since the 1990s only one Green Party MP has been elected to the real Parliament. It is part of the propaganda exercise selling the ‘green’ message – along with wind power and electric cars – that unless human beings change their ways, ‘climate change’ will ‘kill the Planet’.

    *Express* commentator Carole Malone complains of the Exinction Rebellion campaign’s extended – and very expensive https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1479709/extinction-rebellion-protests-london-police-uk-taxpayer-cost-climate-change-government

    – campaign of extended obstruction, saying that when she interviewed one of XR’s leaders on TV recently, she failed five times to answer the ‘very simple question: “What’s your plan to save the planet”’, but ‘kept on repeating the mantra that climate change was a very important issue and we all had to take it seriously.’ However, far from having no answers, extreme environmental campaigners know only too well that their solutions are so extreme that nobody would swallow them, willingly at any rate.

    And while sensibly pointing out that the XR activists are not brave enough to go and protest in China, the world’s biggest polluter, Ms Malone seems to have swallowed the green propaganda, saying: ‘We all get that the planet is dying. We’re all desperately worried and are doing whatever we can and whatever we’re told to do to help save it’ (‘I dare you … go and protest in China’, *Daily Express*, August 28, 2021). https://www.express.co.uk/comment/expresscomment/1483227/extinction-rebellion-climate-change-protests-china

    If so many adults have been brainwashed, what hope is there for children? But if ‘climate change’ caused by human activity is such an urgent and serious problem, the only answer must be to stop all human activity. This would mean going back to living in the stone age, with millions of people dying; but if human beings are the problem – and Sir David Attenborough believes that humans are a ‘plague on the planet’ https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/earth/earthnews/9815862/Humans-are-plague-on-Earth-Attenborough.html

    – depopulating the Earth would be part of the solution, albeit the ‘final solution’.

    David Amess is pro-life, but Sir David is not; he ‘has visited every continent on the globe, warning about the threats of pollution and climate change’ and warning (for the umpteenth time) that it was ‘our last chance to save the planet’, https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2020/04/19/david-attenborough-says-humanity-last-moment-save-planet-new/

    and along with other high-profile environmentalist, is heavily involved with population control.

    https://populationmatters.org/our-patrons

    https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jul/11/improve-contraception-access-to-tackle-wildlife-crisis-urges-campaign?utm_source=SPUC+News+List&utm_campaign=10dd1310d2-news190520_COPY_01&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_826f492851-10dd1310d2-148123137&mc_cid=10dd1310d2&mc_eid=c2228029a3

    He also has ‘form’ when it comes to scaring small children, including little Prince George. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/royal-family/2020/10/08/prince-george-sad-extinction-had-turn-attenborough-says-william/

    Significantly, too, ‘This House Matters’ sponsor Microsoft is the creation of Bill Gates, whose mega-wealthy Foundation is such a generous sponsor of population control. Their initiative is disguised as female empowerment, https://mercatornet.com/why-is-melinda-gates-so-obsessed-with-gender-equality/73453/ but children are the wealth of the pensionless poor – literally, their future. And although Steven Abrahams of Microsoft insisted that it was ‘“important to give children a voice when it comes to their future”’, to have a voice, they need to be born; and to have a real voice – rather than simply echoing the views of biased adults – they need to hear a range of views on the subject, not unrelenting doom and gloom.

    Still, if the rich can teach the poor how to be mean, they can also teach children how to be green; but the same movement making people feel guilty for ‘killing the Planet’ and thereby cancelling the future of their children and grandchildren, is profoundly anti-human; and if their pessimistic message does not succeed in deterring people from having children, they aim to cancel as many children as possible before birth. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/life/eco-anxiety-has-stoppedme-having-children/

    As to the children they do not manage to cancel, they are being conned into believing that by their very existence they are killing the Planet – that they have no future.

    Although we have only one Green Party MP, all the other political parties are so anxious to steal their clothes that by now the environmental campaign should be as naked as the emperor who was flattered into buying some very fine, very expensive, but very invisible new clothes. We are being scared into buying some very old, threadbare green clothes, but in the fairy story it was a small boy who finally pointed out what everyone else dared not say.

    Clearly, the environmentalists fear that their campaign might suffer a similar fate; by telling children a fairy tale in which nobody lives happily ever after – in which there are millions of very unhappy endings – they are hoping to ensure that all the boys and girls are thoroughly brainwashed – or greenwashed – to accept the Malthusian message of their green scary tale.

    Surely everyone knows that Harry is emitting celebrity co2 ?

    Fortunately for him and other celebs it has been scientifically proven that celebrity co2 actually COOLS the planet . Which is why so many of them jet around the world at the drop of a hat

    We should be thankful for their sacrifices and diligence to the cause

      Read ‘UNSETLED?’ by Steven E. KOONIN – a well respected and knowledgeable physicist who knows how to analyse data unlike the climatologists who are not scientists anyway. Seems to me that only Experimental Physicists know how to analyse data properly. His papers have been peer reviewed by many learned ‘proper’ scientists. Worth a read but, unfortunately, probably not by the alarmist crowd!

    The Prince is clearly a denialist who doesn’t want to embarrass his brother, the heir to the throne but who has a hectoring tendency towards those of us who deny the climate.

    “With kids growing up in today’s world, pretty depressing, right, depending on where you live, your home country is either on fire, it’s either underwater, houses or forests are being flattened,” 

    And there’s the problem – a view of the world wholly at odds with reality and a total lack of context of what the world was like before he was born.

      The problem with young people these days, they have been indoctrinated in liberal/left education establishments from Key stage 3, that the “world is going to end” because of man-made climate change. What hope do we have when they grow up and become our next leaders?

  11. August 29, 2021 10:05 am

    It will be interesting to see the reactions of climate alarmists convinced now that CO2 is (wrongly, I bet) seen as the villain of the piece when CO2 becomes exonerated.

    Will the AGW champions admit they were catastrophically wrong or become the new “denialists” or “fall on their swords” in despair?

    Also, once proven wrong, should they be tried for crimes against humanity?

    The elderly Queen may be a nice person, but why continue this royality thing?
    Other than giving news tabloids a reason for being, what purpose is served?
    Does anyone still believe there is something called “royal” blood?

    When the good queen dies there will be a noticable increase in CO2 emissions for that month. Expect great uptics in travel, cooking, broadcasting, and whatever else.

      “…royality…” instead of “royalty.”

      If deliberate, that is clever.

      (Royal reality show)

      Still, YOU are stuck with the ‘King Lear-Biden/Lady Macbeth-Kamala’ show.

      It is fascinating how Shakespeare managed insights about so many things that are hidden
      from almost all of us. The King Lear character is written to go through the three stages of Alzheimers – oddness and paranoia, restlessness and anger, listlessness and death. At that time, very few people lived long enough to show the full course of the disease.

      What an amazing, intuitive, doctor Shakespeare would have made!

      “…ignorant…”

      “Empty vessels make the most noise.”

      In the past, people would often use this sort of mild rebuke. That was because they believed in proverbial knowledge and valued it above book knowledge. I think that, nowadays, people under fifty hardly know what a proverb. They should make a study.
