Prince Charles has been out here in New Zealand again, I don’t know why. He was only here three years ago. Here he is in November 2019, lecturing on the effects of a ‘human spending spree’ of earth’s resources. I wish a reporter would step up and ask ‘who’s doing the spending?’
Charles offered the usual pessimism, doom and gloom, “a tipping point,” wanting us to “take less, make less and dispose of less,” warning us we only have ten years to do it. In 2011 we were warned it was six years. It gets old after a while.
Is Charles going to do with less? I don’t think he was talking about himself or his family.
How often do you hear about “climate change” or “global warming” on the news? Can you remember when you first started hearing about it?
Fifty years ago it wasn’t a thing. In the 1970’s we were being warned about “an ice age,” we were told to only have two children and it was predicted we’d run out of food. So I’ve heard it all before. It’s a political agenda designed to scare the public into a new world order.
Of course we’ve got to look after the environment. But this isn’t about the environment.
Joan Veon, a committed Christian, international journalist, and businesswoman attended more than 100 United Nations and UN-related meetings all over the world and reported on the links between the Technocrats and the UN.
Joan Veon tells how she received her “wake up call” when she learned that the super-rich elite of the world have been feverishly working to establish a “One World Government” through a multitude of “international” institutions.
How often do you hear the term “sustainable development?” When the term was formulated in 1990 Prince Charles commended those who came up with it for getting the term into everyone’s vocabulary.
Joan Veon wrote an article called ‘Sustainable development, Agenda 21 and Prince Charles’, showing how Prince Charles kicked the ball off.
She also wrote a book about his activities.
In April 1991, fourteen months before Agenda 21 was initiated at Rio, Prince Charles held a private two-day conference aboard the royal yacht Britannia, moored off the coast of Brazil. His goal was to bring together key international figures in an attempt to unite them at the Rio Earth Summit.
On board his yacht were senior officials from the World Bank, chief executives from the big oil companies such as Shell and British Petroleum, key NGOs and other officials. Some of them were energy traders. Al Gore was also present.
They invented the term ‘global warming’ in 1992 and the term was used at the initiation of Agenda 21 in Rio.
“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban hosuing are not sustainable.” – Maurice Strong, Earth Summit director at the inititation of Agenda 21 in Rio, 1992.
Do you know what ‘Emissions Trading’ or cap-and-trade is? It’s Energy trading – an exchange where polluters can buy permits for their pollution. Polluters must hold permits in an amount equal to their emissions. Those who want to increase their emissions must buy permits from others willing to sell them.
Then the merchants graduated to making money out of the air by labelling C02 a pollutant, even though it’s a harmless gas that makes up just 0.058% of the atmosphere.
So it’s money for nothing – like the Pope selling indulgences as licenses to sin. Before graduating to C02 the traders started by buying pollution permits for coal-fired power stations. With this kind of thing, there’s enormous potential for moral risk from greed. Do you know about the scandal of an energy trading company called Enron?
“The close links between Charles and Enron came amid dramatic new evidence of the way the company bought its way into the highest echelons of the British Establishment.” Prince Charles took £1m off Enron
In 2007 Prince Charles set up The Prince’s Rainforests Project (PRP) in the UK. The project is working with governments, businesses and non-profit organisations around the world to quickly find solutions to deforestation, with the ambition of “making the trees worth more alive than dead.”
That’s good. Actually, it’s great.
So why on God’s green earth did the Duchy of Cornwall, the Prince’s private estate, invest $113,500 in Sustainable Forestry Management Ltd, a “carbon credits” company based in Bermuda? Sustainable Forestry wanted to trade in carbon credits from rainforests. That means paying money to harvest rainforest trees.
They weren’t allowed to, so they started to lobby politicians. Prince Charles also made speeches criticising existing regulations and calling for a change in the rules to allow trading in rainforest carbon credits. Why would he set himself up to be the conservator of rainforests and then try to have that protection removed? What does that tell us?
More about his lifestyle, and his opinions:
“Charles has an overweening sense of privilege and entitlement, born of many years of being pampered with a level of personal service and comfort that have securely insulated him from the realities of normal life. He also has annoying habit, as The Economist recently noted, of “sounding off about a wide range of subjects about which he has more opinions than knowledge.”
