The Prince is baffled 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.' This is a bit rich since he is on record warning us that 'companies developing genetically modified crops risk creating the biggest environmental disaster of all time', despite scientists taking the opposite view, concluding that GM crops are perfectly safe and, in the words of one expert, they deliver 'real environmental and economic benefits. Prince Charles is known to be a strong believer in the health benefits of homeopathy, despite the British Medical Association describing it as 'witchcraft' and the Government’s chief scientific adviser concluding that it is 'nonsense.' So much for his blind trust in science.
Prince Charles goes on to deplore the 'barrage of sheer intimidation, we are told by powerful groups of deniers that the scientists are wrong' This is the complete reverse of the real situation, since all the main political parties and the scientific establishment are united in a groupthink acceptance of the global warming hoax. What they all ignore is that the belief in man made climate change is not based on scientific evidence but on unproven and, so far, erroneous projections based on a dodgy theory.
The high watermark in slavish global warming scaremongering came during the period between the publication of the Stern Report and the broadcast of the Global Warming Swindle Channel 4 TV programme. The latter was virtually the first time that sceptical views on global warming were given an airing in the mainstream media. For their pains the producers found themselves on the receiving end of a barrage of abuse from those who had claimed that the 'science is settled.' It was during this period that parliament, to its shame passed the Climate Change Act 2008, opposed by only five MPs. Since then more and more ordinary people are beginning to rumble that the global warming hoax is politically, not scientifically, driven. Despite this sceptics are still relatively powerless and far from capable of 'intimidation' or forming a 'powerful group'. This however remains the position and strategy of the climate change scaremongers, but in time they will eventually get their comeuppance.
