Prince Charles Goes Over the Edge

Prince Chucklehead was entertaining for awhile. But now it’s time to call in the men in white coats, before Britain suffers the ultimate indignity of this hysterical clown becoming King. Lately he’s been shrieking that only by radically lowering the standard of living of us peasants can the human race be saved from extinction:

The Prince said if the world carries on “business as usual” then the human race itself could be in danger. …

“This is an important point that needs to be stressed more than it is, because its ultimate impact is plainly not at all clear to most people — without the biodiversity that is so threatened, we won’t be able to survive ourselves.” …

He said the only way to protect wildlife and ultimately the humans who rely on these ‘ecosystem services’ is to transform the world economy so that growth is not at the expense of nature.

He referred to a “sustainability revolution” that would force people to change their lifestyles so they consume less petrol, food and other resources.

“History will not judge us by how much economic growth we achieve in the immediate years ahead, nor by how much we expand material consumption, but by the legacy for our grandchildren and their grandchildren,” he said. “We are consuming what is rightfully theirs by sacrificing long-term progress on the altar of immediate satisfaction. That is hardly responsible behaviour. There is an urgent need for all of us to concentrate our efforts on sustaining, nurturing and protecting the Earth’s natural capital and, moreover, reshaping our economic system so that Nature sits at the very heart of our thinking.”

How strange it is to hear a progressive bleating sanctimoniously about our duty to our descendants, even as liberalism saddles them with a senseless debt that won’t be paid off for generations. But at least he acknowledges that where there is moonbattery, there will not be economic growth.
