Prince Charles calls for green taxes to fight climate emergency: ‘The time to act is now’

January 23, 2020


We must rapidly realign our
own economy to mimic nature’s economy and work in harmony
with it. I will be convening a broad range
of industry and issue roundtables, including but not limited to aviation,
water, carbon capture and storage, shipping, forestry, plastics, financing,
digital technology, the bio economy, nature based solutions, renewable energy,
battery storage, electric vehicles, fisheries, integrated healthcare,
cement, steel, traceability and labelling and agriculture. At the end of which, I shall probably be dead. It is time to level the playing field
and to think about how we properly deploy taxes, policies
and regulation in a way that catalyses sustainable markets. Everything I’ve tried to do and urge
over the past 50 years has been done with our children
and grandchildren in mind because I did not want to be accused
by them of doing nothing except prevaricate and deny the problem. Now, of course, they are accusing us
of exactly that. So put yourselves in their position,
ladies and gentlemen. We simply cannot waste any more time. The only limit the only limit is our
willingness to act and the time to act is now Thank you.

    Prince Charles listened to Greta very very carefully. He has always been a champion of sustainable future they called him "weird" "strange", well the time has come. He now sees it right in his present.

    Why not instead of raising taxes for the poor, you take your stolen money and use that? Having multiple 100+ room mansions, having however many cars you have, and taking aeroplanes half way across the world every other day is not sustainable. Stop being a hypocrite and admit you couldn't care less about anyone else but yourself.

    Right so this future King has broken the main rule the monarchy has and that is don't get political.
    Obviously the monarchy wants to be abolished at this point, how about instead of trying to tax the people we just take our land back? The crown estate is the nations by right and by law, its about time these fkers got hit

    You might not like him but he is telling the truth.

It will be happening in the not distant future! Paul Beckwith, Guy McPherson are truth tellers about climate change!

    Ok so what sacrifices is he going to make?, is he going to shut the palaces and give the tax payer money back to buy electric cars? Is he going to distribute the Dutchy money into green technologies ? No he won’t do that he, will make a little speech and toddle off and think that is a weeks work he’s done whilst everyone else has to make sacrifices, his aid wrote this speech.

    This man has nothing else to do except preach. He flies into Davos, after been driven to the airport in one of his many cars he now pontificates that a family from say Sunderland, who go on holiday to Europe once a year must pay over the odds so that they can have a few weeks in the sun. Love the Queen but Your Royal Highness Prince Charles can piss off.

    When someone is trying to steal the spotlight, he is trying to divert the spotlight away from someone else. Charles is merely drawing media attention to himself in order to save another royal member who was recently receiving the media spotlight for a very wrong reason. If you are not stupid you should know who.
