Prince Loopy

| Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2010

Rejoice, Church of Climatology! Your savior has revealed himself and is proclaiming his intentions to humanity -- in the form of Great Britain's Prince Charles.

In a new documentary, "Harmony," that NBC will air in November, he says he was put on Earth as Britain's future king to save the world, reports the Daily Mail. He also frets in the film about unbridled commerce destroying farmland and countryside, lamenting: "We seem to have lost that understanding of the whole of nature and the universe as a living entity."

Charles' delusions of personal grandeur are way 'round the bend beyond the eccentricity so often displayed by British royals. Witness his call in his June 9 speech at Oxford University for a Western pantheistic synthesis with Islam to counter Western capitalism and its exploitation of science. Yet it's his fellow climate alarmists who've perverted genuine science.

He's a "do as I say, not as I do" would-be savior, too. Charles, after all, significantly increased his "carbon footprint" by traveling to last year's Copenhagen climate summit aboard a royal jet instead of a commercial airliner.

If this is what the "divine right of kings" has devolved into today, perhaps it's time for Magna Carta 2.0.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
