He’s pretty much as insane as your typical lefty in this country that blames so-called climate change for the meltdown in the Middle East. Do these people even stop to think for a moment how absurd they sound?
Drought and competition for increasingly scarce resources caused by manmade activities also played a role in the refugee crisis which has seen thousands of people leave the Middle East and cross Europe in recent months, the Prince of Wales said.
The remarks were made in an interview with Sky News recorded before the latest wave of terror attacks in Paris, which will be broadcast on Monday.
The Prince, 67, said: “We’re seeing a classic case of not dealing with the problem, because, I mean, it sounds awful to say, but some of us were saying 20 something years ago that if we didn’t tackle these issues you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and ever greater difficulties over drought, and the accumulating effect of climate change, which means that people have to move.
“And, in fact, there’s very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria, funnily enough was a drought that lasted for about five or six years, which meant that huge numbers of people in the end had to leave the land”.
Weird how he doesn’t mention the civil war going on there, or the madman Assad. In fact, Assad’s name isn’t even mentioned and we’re supposed to take this clown seriously?
