Prince Charles Calls for Global “War Like Footing” to Address the Climate Crisis

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Prince Charles has described climate change as an existential threat, which requires a war like footing to address.

COP26 Reset: Prince Charles Calls for ‘Vast Military-Style Campaign’ to ‘Radically Transform’ Global Economy

KURT ZINDULKA 1 Nov 2021

Heir to the British throne Prince Charles called for a “vast military-style campaign” to combat climate change as he opened the COP26 summit in Glasgow on Monday.

Prince Charles, Duke of Edinburgh, called on the governments of the world to take a “war-like footing” to solve the supposed climate crisis.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us just how devastating a global cross-border threat can be, climate change and biodiversity loss are no different. In fact, they pose an even greater existential threat, to the extent that we have to put ourselves on what might be called a war-like footing,” Charles said.

The following is Prince Charles talking up his “War Like Footing” (h/t Breitbart):

Am I making too much of what might just be a clumsy turn of phrase? Perhaps – but even The Guardian back in 2013 admitted Prince Charles’ climate kookery is a danger to democracy.

Prince Charles is a danger to democracy – even when I agree with him

Peter Wilby

I support Charles’s views on climate change, but still believe he should stay silent – as the Queen probably does

t is sometimes tempting, even for a republican like me, to applaud Prince Charles. Talking about climate change at a conference in London this week, he mocked “the Incorporated Society of Syndicated Sceptics and the International Association of Corporate Lobbyists”, and urged politicians “to face down a storm of opposition from all sides”. The risk was too great to wait for more scientific tests, he argued; like doctors treating a fever, politicians should “act on what is there”. Well said, sir!

But no matter how much you and I agree, the prince should have remained silent. True, global warming is accepted as a fact by every party in the Commons, and nearly all climate scientists think it no more controversial than the roundness of the planet. Charles, however, strays into areas of political dispute over what should be done. He is not even helping the green cause: he feeds the sceptics’ paranoid belief that “warmists” have infiltrated the establishment, rather as Kim Philby and Anthony Blunt (the spy who became surveyor of the Queen’s pictures) once did on behalf of Moscow.

Charles’s lack of judgment may explain why, though he will take over dutiessuch as attending Commonwealth heads of government conferences, the Queen will not agree to either abdication or a regency. Twenty years of Charles on the throne would probably destroy the monarchy. Its justification is to provide a head of state above politics, as a symbol and focus of national unity. The Queen’s views on almost everything are unknown. No doubt she sometimes expresses opinions to prime ministers, notably on the Commonwealth, of which she is head, and on widening social divisions, which could leave her without a national unity to symbolise. Crucially, however, a prime minister can be confident she will not repeat them publicly. Nor will she lobby or correspond with ministers.

Queen Elizabeth might be a little more discreet, but lately she has allegedly made it clear, in a semi-private way, that she is frustrated by the lack of climate action.

Queen ‘irritated’ by climate change inaction in COP26 build-up

By Alex Kleiderman

The Queen appeared to suggest she was irritated by leaders’ slow response to the climate crisis.

The Queen has appeared to suggest she is irritated by people who “talk” but “don’t do”, ahead of next month’s climate change summit.

Her reported remarks were overheard during the opening of the Welsh parliament on Thursday.

The monarch, who is due to attend the UN’s COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, said she did not know who was coming to the event.

Read more: https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-58923924

Convincing large numbers of people there is a crisis is a well worn path to toppling democracies and republics. Frightened people have repeatedly demonstrated their willingness to trade freedom for security.

I’m not accusing Prince Charles of attempting to restore an absolute monarchy, of being an intentional villain – he doesn’t seem smart enough. But Prince Charles is fanning the flames of tyranny with his militaristic rhetoric and hard line climate fear and Covid fear propaganda. I would love to know who puts these ideas into his head.

In these times of widespread fear and poor political decision making, there is no doubt in my mind the ambitious and unscrupulous are weighing their chances, and taking every opportunity to encroach upon our freedoms.

All the more so for someone with the ‘given name’ of “Charles”

As I understand the name Charles alludes to ‘farmer’ or farming

As such he really should know about weather, plants & climate and hence how this world works.
That Climate Science is a joke, a hoax & a scam

Even worse, as a leader (of sorts), diplomat, ambassador. negotiator and being as well-travelled as he is – he should be able to ‘read people

He should have empathy and understanding.

Just like Donald Trump had by the shed-load and was able to see clearly when people were lying, exaggerating and generally talking & bragging about things of which they were completely clueless.

That he doesn’t posses any sort of skill or aptitude for the position he’s in is not just A Fail, it is perfectly unforgivable.
So he talks big. He calls for ‘war’ while having every intention of himself of never never ever ever coming anywhere near any manifestation of any sort of weapon

The very definition of ‘coward’ ‘wimp’ ‘pathetic’
Give it up Chuckles. Retire to your real little glasshouse/greenhouse and say no more on topics that are waaaaaaay above your head
The Great British will give you genuine love & respect, for ever more, for doing so.
They will. Really.

Exactly = BoJo innit?
(Are we any closer to seeing the effects of long-term sugar & alcohol abuse – e.g.How The Orange Man was T-Total while all hs denigrators were bloated and diabetic boozers. now prove me wrong)

And what became of the War on Drugs, the War on Cancer, the War on Obesity, the War on Internet Pron, the War on <fill this blank>

A War on Wars would make a nice Monty Python sketch 🙂

As if The War on Emu wasn’t a big enough joke.
Only Australia could pull a stunt like that. bless.

Try Ash Sarkar – incredibly woke and eco-loony, a firm believer in the most extreme scenarios of climate change and has her head so far into the sand that even the soles of her feet aren’t showing. Believes everything she is told about climate change, perfectly willing to regurgitate it at will and completely of the opinion that if ‘something isn’t done’ in the next few years, a fifth of the world will be uninhabitable due to extreme temperatures by 2070. This is the standard of frenzied lunacy that passes for intelligence amongst the London twitterati.

Prince Charles is describing something that is already happening behind the scenes. This is less of a call to action and more of a psychological normalization / articulation (designed to shift the Overton Window) of what is already underway.

HISTORY:

The last time Britain went on a war footing, they began rationing of food and all basic necessities in 1939 and didn’t halt the rationing until 1955. Rationing went on for 16 years, for 10 years after the War ended and the progressive Atlee Labor Government want to extend it “indefinitely“.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rationing_in_the_United_Kingdom#Post-Second_World_War_1945-1954

RETURN OF THE NATIONAL LOAF:

British bakers reintroduce World War II bread in coronavirus fight

Britain’s National Loaf — a nutrient-dense whole wheat bread first produced in 1942 — has been re-emerging in recent weeks.

Today, as was the case back then, a scarcity of ingredients and a concern for public health are challenging the culinary status quo.

The U.K. has also seen a surging public interest in the growing of fruits and vegetables — a trend immortalized by the government’s “Dig for Victory” wartime campaign.

Britain embracing its culinary past would be no bad thing, Evans said.

“If standing in supermarket lines during this crisis prompts people to think more deeply and critically about the inequalities and unhealthiness inherent in our food system, all the better,” he added.

As for Atha, he said he was happy to see the National Loaf make a return.

Still time for Britain to reconsider the impending doom of a Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg dynasty. Parliament doesn’t need to establish a republic, just to make the monarchy elective by the House of Lords, for life.

As in Wessex and other Anglo-Saxon kingdoms:

He belongs to the throne that is used to subjugate the world since 400 years (alongside the East India company )
therefore this globalist approach is nothing new ,just the use of a trojan horse is.

On a more interesting note is that his opinion is exactly the same as Bill Gates while his Brother used to visit the same epstein island as Bill Gates (It’s a small world).
And he didn’t gave a crap when ‘his’ British childpeasants were massraped by muslims for years (they call it grooming)while he is so worried about climate.
Which make sense as the Windsors were good friends with mass child raper Jimmy Saville who was already exposed in 1977 on bbc by Johnny Rotten who also said in the interview that the bbc won’t air the interview – and that’s exactly what happened.

Almost exclusively Pakistani and Albanian Muslims, which tends to say far more about Pakistan and Albania than it does about Islam. Albania has long been the centre of drug, people and sex trafficking and has a history of gang violence going back a hundred years or more. Pakistan, as the country that gave us the Taliban and it’s indoctrination schools, is fast developing a similar reputation as that earned by Albania.

Objection from an ex muslim = me
From an article 20 years ago from a german feminist Alice Schwarzer :

A police officer told her that 90 % of all rapes in Cologne are being committed by TURKS ” and you can bet that most of the remaining 10% are are also committed by muslims.

Stockholm is europes rape capital no1,thx to muslim.

The biggest part of them are neither pakis nor albamians nor turks but arabs.

I was actually very disappointed in Elizabeth this week, warbling on about COP26 and how we must ‘do something’ now. As one of the richest people in the world, she just joined the mass hypocrisy that is demonstrated by the likes of Al Gore and most of Hollywood.

Nobody important takes Chuckles seriously, but Her Majesty has always been pretty sensible up until now.

The Queen’s income comes as a fixed fraction of the Crown Estate. It is currently guaranteed to rake in billions from leasing seabed and shore access to offshore wind/tidal farms and their connectors.

Boris announced no more ICE car sales in Britain after 2030.

The annual sales rate in the UK is around 2.5 million. Has been as high as 3 million. In 2020 electric car sales were about 108,000.

I’m really skeptical that this is doable. I doubt industry can make enough, I doubt people will buy them or can afford them, if they do I doubt that with the long refuel times it will be possible for anything like current usage to continue. And its also certain that if 2.5 million a year were sold, with the move to wind power generation, its going to be impossible to charge them when people want to.

This is going to be a disaster. Another ill-thought through, or not at all thought through, green adventure, like trying to power the grid from wind.

Its very hard to forecast specifically what the results will be of seriously attempting it, but they have to include drop in annual sales to around half a million or less as people hold on to old cars. The implications for industry and the economy would be considerable.

Then we’d have changing patterns of use to accomodate the increased fuelling times and lower range. Expect big effects in areas like Cornwall and Norfolk which are heavy tourist economies.

This is going to be a wild ride. Lots of people will be wondering what on earth to do as their cars reach end of life in the period up to 2030. One can imagine a sales surge of ICE cars followed by a slump. But who knows?

When Charles talks about a war-like footing, he is using it as code for rationing.

The last time rationing was used in the UK – crime rates soared and the poor were made significantly poorer.

Meanwhile, out of ‘equity’ they will funnel money from the undeserving poor @ home to 3rd world sh!th0les to support the elites (not the poor) of those sh!th0les.

It’s worse than that. During the war, Edward was actively a traitor. He was willing to serve as figurehead king over a Nazi-occupied Britain.

As Germany overran France in May and June 1940, Churchill threatened to court martial the Duke of Windsor if he didn’t return to British soil from Vichy territory. Hence, he was exiled to the Bahamas in July.

“There wasn’t the level of flooding, flash flooding, storms, coastal inundation we have seen since 2000 in the last century.”

Ever heard of the “Benchmark Flood” 1947? “Big flood” 1953?

Do your homework before making yourself the eternal useful idiot.

From the Natural Environment Research Council:
“The UK coastline has been subject to terrible floods throughout history. Records suggest that coastal floods killed 100,000 people in the UK in 1099, with similar death tolls in 1421 and 1446. Up to 2,000 people drowned around the Bristol Channel in 1607, the greatest loss of life from a natural catastrophe in the UK in the last 500 years.”

The queens remarks were taken out of contex, deliberately. She was actually referring to a VIP who was going to COP-26 and then pulled out, when she said “talk but don’t do”, not to leaders not taking action on climate change.

Of course, all of them are hypocrites at best, and many are deliberately levering the “climate emergency” to gain power and wealth. All at the expense of the public.

Timber for those purposes is used in a meaningful and long term way, not burned to ash in an instant.

Some of the furniture in my house has been handed down since it was bought 70 years ago, many people have much older pieces. That gives plenty of time for the regrowth of more trees for replacement. But mine and many others won’t need to replaced furniture for another 100 years, down the generations, at least.

Even the modern furniture I have bought is ten years old and will be handed down.

My house is full of timber, it’s over 200 years old and Listed, so will go on in perpetuity protected by the state.

“But mine and many others won’t need to replaced furniture for another 100 years”. Billions of people on this planet, you know, and they all like furniture- and for that, we need to manage forests, and for that, we need markets for the “junk wood”.

“What’s your contribution to conservation?” I’ve been a professional forester for 50 years- so I know infinitely more about forestry than you do.

“Like I have said elsewhere on this article, no one cares more about environmentalism, conservation and the planet that the genuine contributors to WUWT, and most certainly not ignorant green adherents.”

Well this proves how ignorant YOUR are because, you fool, “green adherents” HATE forestry, especially biomass- yet, some of the people here still think biomass is just another phony green renewable resource- it’s the ONLY truly green renewable resource.

Besides, why do you give a dam about carbon emissions, are you a green adherent?

The level of hysteria around COP26 is astounding and alarming.

The scale of the problem, if there is one, is hysterically exaggerated. We had for instance a reporter blaming a railway line blockage due to a falling branch on global warming. Every autumn trains in the UK are delayed because of leaves on the line, which will now also probably be blamed on global warming.

The measures advocated by the hysterical seem to be demanded from countries doing about 25% of the world’s emissions, so for that reason alone they will be totally ineffective in the claimed goal of reducing global emissions.

Meanwhile, the big emitters are growing, and that is simply condoned or not spoken about.

And the measures themselves are either impossible of achievement, as when its proposed to switch grids to wind and solar supply, or will have no effect even on local emissions, as when generating plants are converted to burn wood rather than coal or gas.

The BBC appears to have converted its news to almost nothing but climate and COP. The Guardian similarly though not quite so extreme.

The only comfort one can take is that this surely must be peak climate hysteria. But the worry is that this has even further to run and that the UK, under a Prime Minister who seems to have gone mad, is seriously headed down the road to de-industrialisation.

Without even realizing that that is the implication of the Government’s policy measures. The most terrifying thing is that they seem unable to foresee the consequences of what they are intending to implement.

I would actually like to see cars restrained and a planned role for walking and cycling in cities and even in the countryside, where frequently to take a bike to shopping involves some section of the journey on main roads with no bike provision, and impossibly risky and unpleasant. Better public transportation would be good too.

For a tiny fraction of the amount we are spending on the illusion of wind and solar we could be making the country much pleasanter and healthier on a local basis. But both political parties appear to be in the grip of this mad spending hysteria on things that don’t work and don’t improve any quality of life for anyone – in fact, all it does is increase fuel poverty.

At Tim Blair’s blog, a commenter compared Charles’s war declaration with Emperor Caligula declaring war on Neptune. Caligula took an army to the beach and ordered the soldiers to attack. They waded into the water and chopped at the waves with their swords, then collected seashells on the beach. They took the shells back to Rome and Caligula said they were tributes paid by Neptune after Caligulas great victory.

Charles I was an autocrat and his view that he was appointed by god to govern (top down) as he chose put him in direct conflict with those that thought otherwise, particularly Oliver Cromwell. Charles 1 was defeated in battle and executed. What followed was a republic and the beginnings of parliamentary democracy. Following the death of Cromwell, Charles II was restored to the throne and the long road to the modern world began with the beginnings of free market capitalism, and perhaps key, the start of the scientific, agricultural and industrial revolution, which was all bottom up.
Prince Charles is unelected but thinks he is entitled to push not just the UK, but the world, back towards top down government and it is likely he will be Charles III.

inevitably, the archbishop did feel the need to take to social media to apologise for these claims, tweeting that he “unequivocally apologise[d] for the words I used when trying to emphasise the gravity of the situation facing us at COP26.”

Note that July 11, 2019 + 18 months = mid-January 2021, so we passed that point-of-no-return more than 9 months ago.

It is impossible for the Prince, as an aged member of British nobility, to admit “Ooops, I made a misjudgment”, rather we are embarrassingly presented now with the farce of “Please, trust me this time because I really, really know what I’m talking about.”

“The Queen’s property managers will this week set out terms for the world’s biggest offshore wind auction in a decade. Industry experts expect the complex bidding process to raise record sums, which could increase energy bills and hand a windfall to the crown – potentially generating hundreds of millions for the Queen.

The Crown Estate, which manages the monarch’s property portfolio, holds exclusive rights to lease the seabed around the British Isles for wind and wave power. Its profits go to the Treasury, which then sends 25% back to the royal household in the form of the sovereign grant.

The Crown Estate does not make its forecasts public. However, if the government’s 2030 target is met, the Queen could be collecting more than £100m a year within a decade.”

Probably not her, but King Charles, or King William would be.

Does this mean I can shoot at tornadoes and hurricanes? Can I launch artillery at droughts? Drop a MOAB on the next heat dome? Do we use the existing military branches, or do we set up a Climate Force, with tie-dyed shirts and flip flops for a uniform? Maybe give all the enlisted mirrored hats to increase the earth’s albedo while they’re at it.

No. The last thing they actually want is some sort of war-like footing, the screaming from the woke privileged elite wouldn’t stop. What they actually want is for everyone to let them do anything they want to, for the greater good, without question.

No problem. The UK can go first. Put your people into WWII style rationing in the name of climate change and let us know how that turns out.

So we in the UK already cut our CO2 by 48.8% on 1990 levels and achieved 42% renewable electricity.

No adverse impact whatever.

That’s not what they’re talking about griff.

Reducing emissions is not enough. Emissions must be eliminated. NOW.

Let me know how stopping the use of all fosil fuels in the UK over the next say 5 years jibes with your “no adverse impact” (which of course isn’t true anyhow).

Soaring electricity bills that will cause many to have to choose between heating their homes or eating are “No adverse impact whatever”? You and your ilk just hate people, don’t you?

Which would you prefer them to do, die of cold or starvation?

  1. What inaction? They’re already doing quite a lot of harm – physically – just look at all those windmills and closed power plants, economically and politically..
  2. The world has warmed a little since it had cooled a little. What existential threat? And when?
  3. So, sanction China and India or just flail on your own people for no effect on the claimed threat?
  4. Isn’t everyone looking for the big cause and “war-like footing”? It’s the ultimate virtue signal.

What Charles is really saying when he proclaims we need to be on a war-footing over CO2, is it is going to take a LOT of money to fix the Earth’s climate.

You are looking at the face of a no-consequences policy position. They may say any dumb thing you please and make any inexperienced prediction you want. It does not matter to them or the climate. You on the other hand need to stay on the edge of your seat for a another money grab at money you might make in the future.

“Warlike footing…”

Against China, Russia, & Saudi Arabia ?

OR

Against his own people???

He means rationing, like happens when an entire nation goes on war footing for resource allocation.

The war-time rationing would be only for the Little People, you know…. you and me.
The billionaire Bilderberg Club and the political class see themselves as exempt from such restrictions on their lavish lifestyles of chalets, yachts, and private jets that “war-time” rationing would bring to everyone else, including the Royals like Chuckles.

in the words of Winston Churchill…

We shall go on to the end to fight climate change…
we shall fight on the seas and oceans,
we shall fight on the beaches,
we shall fight on the landing grounds,
we shall fight in the fields and in the streets,
we shall fight in the hills;
we shall never surrender! Death to climate change!

I remember that during the coronation of Queen Elisabeth, Charles was being led by the hand.
He looked completely lost and inhabiting a separate reality. After all of these years I see no change.

There might well have to a be a war eventually but not of the kind he is thinking about given that with no democracy in the UK – especially with the lying womanising oaf Johnson denying us a referendum – there may be no other way to pursue our political goals.

There could a little light if it is true that UKIP are getting their act together to be the voice of those of us on the right of centre – or Far Right as described by the BBC/Guardian.

Club of Rome co-founder Sir Alexander King declared the enemy is humanity, so one should not be surprised.
And the RIIA, Royal Institute for International affairs, Chatham House, has Prince Charles’ back – they want to define ¨ecocide¨ an international crime with military intervention an option :

When goofballs like him and John Kerry preach one thing but do something else it tends to make me angry. If they will give up their lifestyles of the “Rich and Famous’ and move into an 800 square home and use nothing but renewable energy for homes, then I might consider believing them, but not until. And don’t give that crap about we planted ten thousand trees to offset our use, that is only something RICH folks can do!

It’s amazing how, after the global warming INSTITUTION came into being, that global warming became climate change, that historical climate temperature records were adjusted to show cooler past temperatures, and that the climate temperature rise from a declared dangerous rise of 2 degrees Celsius was lowered to an even more dangerous 1.5 degrees Celsius, that the alarmists began claiming global warming to be an existential threat to humanity.
