Climate change

A thorny subject for many people, and not one I can profess to knowing too much about -although my feelings about it are that it's largely a natural phenomenon and not really to do with cars at all- and because I don't know much about it, I tend not to talk or write about it that much- unlike some other people, in particular the Human FA Cup himself, Prince Charles.
The Prince of Wales launched an attack on climate sceptics, deriding them for peddling "pseudo science".
 
"Climate scepticism appears to be on the rise again with more and more people prepared to listen to those siren voices that say that everything is okay, there is no need to worry and that we can all carry on as before as all this fuss about climate change and environmental collapse is merely part of a sinister attempt to undermine the entire foundations of the market-based capitalist system.
Well, ladies and gentlemen, I believe the urgency of the situation is too great simply to sit back and do nothing."

On you go then Chuckles, you could start by getting rid of that Aston Martin convertible you have, or your helicopter, or the fleet of Range Rovers.

Here's Prince Charles yesterday, shortly after talking bollocks at a conference.

Well at least no one will listen to a man who said this...
'I just come and talk to the plants, really - very important to talk to them, they respond I find.'
And this...
'Do you seriously expect me to be the first Prince of Wales in history not to have a mistress?'

Perhaps he should just get a mistress and stop bothering the world with his opinions =]

Yeah, I am with you. I think "global warming" is a natural phenomenom, much like the sopoosed "destruction" of the ozone layer we were freaking out about back when? the 80s or 90s? Yeah, all natural.

We will be extinct like the dinosaurs soon. Probably in 2012.
