HRH Prince Charles voices strong opinions regarding those who reject the hypothesis that human influence on the Earth’s climate is likely to lead to catastrophic change. Speaking at a prizegiving for young sustainability entrepreneurs he had the following to say, as reported by the Telegraph:
“It is baffling, I must say, 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.
“All of a sudden, and with a barrage of sheer intimidation, we are told by powerful groups of deniers that the scientists are wrong and we must abandon all our faith in so much overwhelming scientific evidence.
“So, thank goodness for our young entrepreneurs here this evening, who have the far-sightedness and confidence in what they know is happening to ignore the headless chicken brigade and do something practical to help.”
