Prince William’s Dangerous Green Deal
Even the most famous woman in the world can’t last more than a week on the news cycle, and so we’re back to the old favorite of apocalypse musical chairs.
Climate change or Covid? Trump or Monkeypox? China or drag queens? Trending topics in society say a lot about our state of mind…
For those watching the Royal Family in the wake of Her Majesty’s death – hoping and (dare we say it) pray that his offspring would be fine – they might be appalled by the video posted yesterday.
Unable to attend the event, he recorded a video message for the Earthshot award presented in New York.
The awards show is not an event, the Royal Family does it all the time, but the words Prince William chose to say while he was doing it are a bit concerning after all the goodwill he has amassed by courting public favor last week.
“Environmental protection was close to my grandmother’s heart, and I know she would have been delighted to hear about this event and the support you all give to Earthshot finalists, the next generation of trailblazers. of the environment.
“Together in this room are the people and organizations that will help us achieve Earthshot’s mission to repair, restore and rejuvenate our planet in this decade.
“This mission is not easy.
“Just as President John F. Kennedy so aptly put it, when he challenged the United States of America to unite behind the goal of putting a man on the moon, ‘We choose to do these things not because they are easy, but because they are difficult. ”
“I know the world is an uncertain place right now, that many families and communities around the world are facing unimaginable challenges – from conflict to energy crises and food shortages. While addressing them in the short term, we We must also remain resolutely focused on solving the biggest challenges that threaten our future.
“Because if we don’t, climate change will only serve to root these immediate challenges in fundamental global issues that will have a serious impact on the lives of all of us.
“That’s why our collective mission is so urgent.”
It goes on… But Prince William sounds exactly like he’s narrating one of the World Economic Forum’s apocalyptic promotional videos released ahead of the last forum in Davos – which isn’t surprising considering they’re an official partner of Earthshot’s global alliance.
The royal family made a critical mistake by confusing love of country and care for the environment – which are non-political aspirations common to most Western citizens – with the heavily politicized and commercialized green movement. The clue for Prince William is the number of billion dollar companies on the sponsorship list.
It’s the same mistake his father made by using the royal name to launch the widely despised Great Reset initiative.
If the Prince of Wales wants to start a Crown regeneration programme, sponsor more public parks or create university scholarships to help the next generation learn more about the planet, that’s fine. He would get away with it easily. But when it comes to getting involved with deeply political entities that award themselves prizes for eco-activism with strong undertones of collectivist thinking, the Prince is going to run into serious trouble.
As he rightly says, the world is heading towards an energy crisis. What he fails to say is that this is a crisis largely caused by the relentless push towards renewable energy (something the Crown has gotten involved in) at the expense of an energy of appropriate basis. It is a disaster created by the ideology to which he awards prizes.
The one thing the royals don’t need right now is their name close to the solar and wind technologies that are destroying energy as people move into freezing houses and blackouts. electricity this winter.
Too bad his face is all over the Earthshot page screaming about the climate.
