Video: Prince Charles & Robert Redford: Eco-Hypocrisy

Check out the filmaker's website...

The Prince is coming to the US this week to speak at Georgetown University about "sustainability" so we decided to see just how he lives up to his own standards.

We've made a short film that exposes just how hypocritical the Prince is as he lives a fabulous, luxury life whilst lecturing the rest of us that we have to live with less.

He is coming to the US to lecture on sustainability and tells people they must live with less in order to save the planet but tells us we must end our "age of convenience". He wants to make our lives more inconvenient to save the planet from alleged climate change but the Prince refuses to make any changes in his own life.

The film points out how Prince Charles, with his wife and a staff of 14 flew more than 16,000 miles around south America to "warn about the dangers of climate change". Instead of a small private jet Prince Charles traveled on a giant Airbus (normal capacity 134 passengers) that was converted into a luxury private plane.

If the theme is "we're all gonna have to live with less," then can we have less rich who assuage their guilty consciences by telling us to be poorer? It is like the priest-child molester who lectures his congregation on carnal sin. Think of what we could do to reduce our carbon footprint if sent these guilt-wracked rich people to reeducation camps... kidding, kidding. But speaking of Communist China, I understand that they are creating new consumers by the scads. Is it possible that Asian carbon doesn't cause warming?

Okay... when the LEADERS of this world use LESS "stuff," then, so will I. Isn't the BEST way to lead by example?

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (MarketWatch) — Breathtaking price drops, such as those we’ve seen in precious metals over the past couple of days and especially this morning, are typical of times when there is an excessive amount of bullish sentiment.

At such times, after all, most of the sideline cash that otherwise would be itching to invest in gold has already been deployed — leaving little remaining short-term cash to jump in and support the price during the inevitable periods of weakness.

Live with less stuff!

Great I am all for it. Here is a brief list of things I believe we ALL can live without.

o A Federal MONSTER: Pretending to be a government gobbling up 25% of the GNP while building a Soviet style bureaucracy
o TSA: Goons who pretend to protect us. Their real job is to instill fear
o War on Terrorism: A joke from day one. Much of the world considers the USSA Military terrorist ONE
o Medical Industry: The good Medical Profession is held in thrall by the goons from HHS
o Processed Foods: Chemicals and denatured food pretending to be food the source of MUCH or our medical problems
o "Vaccines": Toxins injected DIRECTLY into our blood. NEVER proven safe or effective

Lou, I agree with most of your list, except vaccines which most certainly HAVE been proven to work (the rise in the rates of measles in parts of California due to hysterical parents not vaccinating, is not a coincidence). Now, if you want to argue that the pharma companies are eyeing "mandatory vaccines" as a big fat paycheck, you're right. Still doesn't make the vaccines, especially the general concept, useless. My uncle who got polio would definitely not think so.

Also, the sensational headline about eco-friendly lightbulbs giving someone cancer is nice if you're a knee-jerk hater of change, but the actual "link" only exists for those extremely rare photo-sensitive persons who cannot go out in the sun at all. They can get skin eruptions from UV exposure which "can lead to cancer". The real culprit is the spectrum of the lights - which is different between the two light bulbs generally, but there's nothing that says the more efficient ones HAVE to have a certain spectrum (mainly, it's the cheap ones that will pose a problem).

Prince Charles says headless chickens should have more blind trust in science

http://joannenova.com.au/2014/02/prince-charles-says-we-should-have-more-blind-trust-in-science/

PRINCE Charles has called people who deny human-made climate change a “headless chicken brigade” who are ignoring overwhelming scientific evidence.

Thus Chicken Little yells “headless chickens”, and climate sensitivity must be 3.3C. Right?

The heir to the throne, a dedicated environmentalist, accused “powerful groups of deniers” of mounting “a barrage of sheer intimidation” against opponents.

So one of the richest men in the world, future ruler of nations, feels bullied by unfunded volunteers? Such bravery from our next Head of State. (I’m not Monarchist or Republican, but if Charles keeps talking, that could change.)

This is the same old argument: authorities want us to believe authority, while stupid punters ask for data instead.

Using all the inductive reasoning he could muster, Charles admits he cannot figure out why everyone does not accept the pronouncements of people who hide declines, data, emails and methods:

Charles said it was “baffling … that in our modern world we have such blind trust in science and technology that we all accept what science tells us about everything – until, that is, it comes to climate science”.

We can only assume this eloquence and insight is a product of the best education the British Isles establishment could offer. That’s not just one, but two forms of namecalling, you headless chicken deniers. How could you possibly disagree?

-----------------


In the 1700′s the King raised the ire of the New England region not only with a tax on tea, but Pine trees as well.

http://www.nelma.org/lagniappe/kings-broad-arrow-and-ewp/

excerpt:

The tax on tea was not the only issue that raised anger among American colonists in the 1700’s. Eastern White Pine played an equally key role in events that led to the Revolutionary War and American Independence from England…

…Acting as dominion over the forests of “New England”, the King assumed ownership of the best of the Eastern White Pine trees and appointed a legion of Surveyors of Pines and Timber to survey the forestland “within 10 miles ofbroadarrow any navigable waterway” and mark all suitable trees with “The King’s Broad Arrow”, a series of three hatchet slashes. This was the symbol commonly used to signify ownership of property or goods by the Crown, in this case to be owned and used solely by the Royal Navy. Any tree of a diameter of twenty-four inches and greater at twelve inches from the ground, with “a yard of height for each inch of diameter at the butt” was blazed with the broad arrow. Violation by the colonists of this rule would be assessed a fine of £100. Persons appointed to the position of Surveyor-General of His Majesty’s Woods were responsible for selecting, marking and recording trees as well as policing and enforcing the unlicensed cutting of protected trees.

Use of the broad arrow mark commenced in earnest in 1691 when the revised Massachusetts Bay Charter included in its last paragraph a “Mast Preservation Clause” stating (original language):

“And lastly for the better provideing and furnishing of Masts for Our Royall Navy Wee doe hereby reserve to Vs Our Heires and Successors all Trees of the Diameter of Twenty Four Inches and upwards of Twelve Inches from the ground growing vpon any soyle or Tract of Land within Our said Province or Territory not heretofore granted to any private persons And Wee doe restrains and forbid all persons whatsoever from felling cutting or destroying any such Trees without the Royall Lycence of Vs Our Heires and Successors first had and obteyned vpon penalty of Forfeiting One Hundred Pounds sterling vnto Ous Our Heires and Successors for every such Tree soe felled cult or destroyed without such Lycence had and obteyned in that behalfe any thing in.”


The colonists paid little attention to this edict and tree harvesting increased with disregard for broad arrow protected trees. However, as Baltic imports decreased, the British timber trade increasingly depended on North American trees, and enforcement of the Broad Arrow policies increased. Subsequent British Parliament Acts of 1711, 1722 and 1772 extended protection, finally to 12 inch diameter trees.

The growing enforcement and stricter criteria of the decree angered the colonists who made their livelihood from the Eastern White Pine wood products they produced and sold. The early American pioneers had this timber on their properties, within their grasp, yet they were not to touch it.

The growing resentment led to “Swamp Law” whereby many of the “King’s” pines were cut illegally, the “Kings Broad Arrow” mark obliterated and the wood was put to use. Others cut down and used all the trees marked with the king’s broad arrow and then placed the broad arrow on smaller trees. Many of the marked “Mast” trees were partially burned in mysterious fires or splintered in unusual gales.

This rebellion led to numerous skirmishes throughout New England between local settlers and British authorities, with these clashes appropriately given names such as “The White Pine War” and “The Pine Tree Riot”.

The Revolutionary War was about many things, and Eastern White Pine weighed heavy on the minds and hearts of the colonists desire for independence. Some historians believe that denial of use of these trees wasOld_Pine_Tree_Flag_-_web at least as instrumental as taxation of tea in bringing about the American Revolution and the first acts of rebellion against British rule. In fact, the Eastern White Pine was the emblem emblazoned on the first colonial flag, including one bearing a white pine purportedly flown at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

Charles should be advised that the locals will not take too kindly to “The King’s Carbon” either.
