Not many people seem to be excited about the latest climate-change prediction by Prince Charles.
“I am firmly of the view that the next 18 months will decide our ability to keep climate change to survivable levels and to restore nature to the equilibrium we need for our survival,” he said.
But it’s not his first warning of doom. In 2009, he declared the “tipping point” would come in 100 months, a little more than eight years. He then extended the deadline in 2015, noted Climate Depot.
The site’s author, Marc Morano, pointed out the 2009 warning was of “irretrievable climate and ecosystem collapse, and all that goes with it.”
But in 2015, the UK Western Morning News reported: “His Royal Highness warns that we have just 35 years to save the planet from catastrophic climate change.”
“The grim reality is that our planet has reached a point if crisis and we have only seven years before we lose the levers of control,” the prince declared.
Morano observed that climate “tipping points” have been a staple of the global warming movement for decades.
The United Nations issued such warnings in 1982, and it declared a “10-year tipping point” in 1989.
“It’s difficult to keep up whether it is hours, days, months or 1000 years,” Morano wrote, citing other predictions.
For example, Elizabeth May of the Canadian Green Party said in 2009, “We have hours” to prevent disaster.
And then-U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown claimed that year there were only 50 days left to “save world.”
Also in 2009, NASA’s James Hansen declared President Obama only “has four years to save Earth.”
In 1982, U.N. official Mostafa Tolba said “within a couple decades” it would happen.
James Delingpole at Breitbart said: “OK. So assuming, for a moment, that the Prince of Wales isn’t just spouting gibberish, what kind of measures might we need to adopt in the next 18 months to ‘keep climate change to survivable levels?”
He explained the U.K. government’s Climate Change Committee chief is demanding “we stop wasting water, become really energy efficient, cut food waste, eat 20 percent less meat, take all our energy from renewable sources and ensure our homes are properly insulated and ventilated.”
U.N. official admitted its about socialism
The global warming and climate change campaign recently took a serious hit when Christiana Figueres, a United Nations official, explained at a news conference in Brussels that the whole effort is not about protecting the environment but destroying capitalism.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
“This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model for the first time in human history.”
But then a Hebrew University of Jerusalem expert on climate, Prof. Daniel Rosenfeld, suggested a “rethinking” is needed.
“We need to rethink everything we know about global warming,” he said, as new calculations show that scientists have grossly underestimated the effects of air pollution.
WND reported in 2018 on plans by China and Russia to trigger global warming.
At the time, the South China Morning Post reported the two nations were working together “to modify the atmosphere.”
