Prince Charles Lectures President Trump on Climate—Trump Ignores His Advice
June 5, 2019 (EIRNS)—President Donald Trump told Piers Morgan of ITV’s “Good Morning Britain” this morning that his meeting with Prince Charles, scheduled for 15 minutes, went on for an hour and a half, because old Charlie was so “passionate” about climate change.
“He did most of the talking,” Trump said. “He is really into climate change, and I think that’s great; I like that, and I want that.”
Did you listen? “I totally listened to him,” Trump answered, and praised Prince Charles’s “concern” for future generations.
Did you agree with him about man-made climate change?
“I believe that there is a change in weather, and I think it changes both ways,” Trump said, referring to both natural and human forces, Environment & Energy News agency reported. He elaborated: “Don’t forget, it used to be called global warming; that wasn’t working, then it was called climate change, and now it’s actually called extreme weather, because with extreme weather, you can’t miss. Look, we have a thing now with tornadoes. I don’t remember tornadoes in the U.S. to this extent. But then, when you look back 40 years ago, we had the worst tornado binge that we’ve ever had. In the 1890s, we had our worst hurricanes, and I say we’ve had some very bad hurricanes.”
