Charles’s Dirty Little Secret

November 20, 2021

By Paul Homewood


h/t Dave Ward


At the Cop26 summit this month he made an impassioned plea to stop climate change and warned we were in the ‘last chance saloon’.

But Prince Charles’s green credentials were called into question yesterday as it emerged a winter lights display at Sandringham is running on diesel generators.

The Luminate attraction at the Queen’s Norfolk estate is powered by the generators, along with a funfair and car park floodlights erected for the five-week event.

    Do as I say, not as I do. Usual double standards from the climate hysterics.

      That only applies to democratically elected persons. Royals are even higher above us.

        Elect from amongst the Widsors, first place Pr Anne for me.

    Surely you know by now that Celebrity and Royal CO2 has special properties that actually mean they suck harmful Plebs CO2 out of the atmosphere and reduce warming, not increase it?

    When Meghan flew to New York for her baby shower and then the pair flew to Sicily on a private jet for a climate conference, as they were Royal AND celebrities they sucked so much CO2 out of the atmosphere that temperatures dropped 2degrees C.

    As Prince Charles is a Royal, but not a celebrity, his efforts with the generators will create a neutral impact.

    It should not be a secret that nobody will be able to do anything significant without carbon fuels for transportation. If they really want to reach net-zero, even renewable biofuels are only 10% renewable ethanol mixed to be 90% fossil fuel at the pump. Will they have to go? Net-zero means negative emissions and there is no other option except biofuels. Solar panels, wind turbines, even nuclear are useless for transporting anything. Lighting up outdoor lights can be done with subsidized “renewable” energy, but little else.

      The E10 biofuel is just another con trick from the green political con tricks department .
      Supposed to produce 1% less CO2 .
      But is a lot less efficient and will need 10 to 20% more for the same use . Therefore it actually produces 9 to 19% more CO2 . But it is an extra 10 to 20% more revenue for the Government , which is what the whole thing is about .

        Q. Where’s the demand for E10?
        Not from the market.
        So who funds it?
        Who benefits?
        Who was ready to supply it?
        And who decided if should be?
        And who paid?

        It really screws the SU carbs on the Midge.

    Surely HRH could afford a few wind turbines.
    His show could then go on though intermittently but the intermittent loss of his his electric blankets’ function might be so vexing as to make him return to fossil fuel energy, on the quiet..

    “Prince Charles’s green credentials were called into question”. Is there anyone at all with any actual green credentials.

    • November 20, 2021 10:06 pm

      Sounds like a new challenge for medical science.

      There is probably some tribe deep in the Amazonian rainforest that has yet to be discovered and made aware of the existence of more than 2 genders that would therefore have no modern synthetic oil-based materials – otherwise, no.

    I’m only surprised the little chap (as Di may have said) didn’t insist on having solar panels to power the lights.
    Hah! I shall ever be a very disappointed Monarchist.

    While some of us maybe agonizing at what temperature to set the thermostat at this weekend our future King doesn’t stop working.
    Fresh from urging the world to consider the thorny subject of climate change he and Camilla
    take the ministerial jet on a four day tour of the Middle East.

    While retracing the footsteps of Jesus they announce Climate Change would be the theme of the visit. Only stopping in Cairo to book a room at a local hotel for next year’s COP.

    Princess Anne seems not to get involved in public controversy so she better understands what the UK monarchy is there for and how it should behave.

    Maybe she should be lined up to succeed her mother.

    • November 21, 2021 9:25 am

      Anne is the best of a bad bunch, no interest in fashionable wokeness, which is why her views are never aired on the BBC.

      I doubt if you could run all of that from a couple of plugs with a few extension leads!

      Definitely not. With any outdoor event the simplest and easiest power solution is a diesel generator. I don’t know if this is a regular event in which case if it generates – oops, sorry about the pun – enough profit then it would be worth the cost of laying cables to power points.

    Of the Seven Deadly Sins the eighth, Hypocrisy, is by far the worst.
    Heaven help us when he becomes king (and I’m an atheist).

    When I read the headline I thought Paul had moved into exposing the hypocrisy of our future King in an entirely different matter.

    The world of climate change is founded on hypocrisy, even Saint Greta, Archbishops and XR join in from time to time.

    Let’s not let principles get in the way of Charles making money to fund his lavish and privileged lifestyle. Imagine if he had ever actually had to work to have all those servants and houses and cars?

    The worrying thing is these rich people don’t realise their hypocrisy as they fly around the World in private jets etc. They pay their carbon offsets and they go off guilt free. You might have thought that all these offsets were devised for the benefit of the rich and privileged. Perish the thought.

    • November 21, 2021 10:53 pm

      Yes, his remarks on climate change simply underscore the necessity of that family making NO public opinions on controversial questions. Stick to Mom’s and Apple pie’s British equivalents
      Maybe they and their advisers do not know that these questions are controversial.
      If so, it reflects the BBC and other MSM ban on free speech-a terrible mistake for us in UK.

      Unfortunately Wills is also a green idiot, one of the greens from St Andrews.

        Yep. But he might be salvageable. Rescue chopper pilot, Kate seems based.

    Main thing that comes to my mind is what a tawdry show this is , just to grab a few pounds.
    Not the work of a Scholar Prince clearly.
