Bummer: Climahypocrite King Charles III Appears To Be Giving Up His Climate Activism

Yes, the guy who travels in fossil fueled private jets all over the world and fossil fueled SUVs and fossil fueled yachts may have to stop yammering to get governments to force you peons to Do Something

King Charles III appears to signal an end to climate change activism

Outspoken about the “existential” threat posed by climate change when he was Prince of Wales, King Charles III on Friday seemed to signal an effective end to his decades-long public advocacy for lowering greenhouse gas emissions, which are warming global temperatures.

In his first speech as king, Charles pledged to uphold the constitutional principles that kept the sovereign, including his late mother, Queen Elizabeth II, from weighing in on what could be seen as political matters.

“My life will of course change as I take up my new responsibilities,” Charles said in his videotaped speech. “It will no longer be possible to give so much of my time and energies to the charities and issues for which I cared so deeply, but I know this important work will go on in the trusted hands of others.”

For more than 40 years, Charles had championed environmental causes, including the need to transition the global economy off of fossil fuels so as to avert a climate catastrophe. In November, at the start of COP 26, the United Nations climate change conference in Glasgow, Scotland, Charles said climate change was an “existential threat to the extent that we have to put ourselves on what might be called a war-like footing” and called on world governments to begin “radically transforming our current fossil fuel based economy to one that is genuinely renewable and sustainable.”

Hmm, so, he’s been saying doom is coming for 40 years and there’s no doom? Bummer.

Over the years, Charles has been a champion of solar power, winning approval in 2021 to install panels atop London’s Clarence House, his former residence, and praising India’s expansion of solar capacity.

Will he put solar panels on Windsor Palace? It took him till 2021 to put them on the place he’d been living for a long time. Like most climahypocrites, he’s short of doing stuff in his own life.

    I will give His Majesty the King a pass on this one: the King is supposed to be apolitical, to avoid constitutional crises in the United Kingdom. I will say, however, that the name “King Charles III” is kind of jarring.

    One does hope that he will be a better king than either of the two previous King Chucks. Alas! The first King Charles did indeed have his head chucked aside!

      Dear Elwood:

      Corinthians 13:11
      King James Version
      11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

      Looks like the King has just grown up.
