King Charles is off to a terrible start wearing the crown in Britain.
Last year, when King Charles took the British throne after the death of Queen Elizabeth, we hoped he would retain her scrupulous political neutrality. Instead, he’s using the bully pulpit of the throne to promote climate change radicalism.
At last year’s COP26 climate conference, his warning on climate change was all doom and gloom: “The world is on the brink and we need the mobilizing urgency of a war-like footing if we are to win.” He added that “time has literally run out.” A few weeks ago at this year’s COP28 conference, the world-renowned climatologist declared that the world is “dreadfully far off track” in using fossil fuels and that we are reaching “alarming tipping points.”
Who’s writing his speeches? Paul Ehrlich? The Sierra Club?
Then he used his annual Christmas Day message – which is traditionally a time for an uplifting and patriotic message to scold his fellow Brits by saying “We must protect the Earth and our natural world.” He doesn’t seem to understand that prosperity leads to a better environment.
We wish the King would stick to the script of promoting peace, ending world hunger, and keeping Britain great rather than trying to stop the rise of the oceans.
