Yo..Prince Charles here's a news update. Back in the 1970's we were told by the "EXPERTS" that we were heading into a new Ice Age for the same reasons we are now heading into Global Warming.

After the Presidental election is over in the U.S. you will see that the Global Warming issue is going to slowly go away. It was only being used for the U.S. presidental election to help out the Democrats to win the election. Once in power the Democrates will only give Global Warming lip service because it would cost to much to actually do anything that the "EXPERTS" say has to be done!

Yeah, I was told there would be no oil by the year 2000 by my teachers. I wish Japan would focus on pollution control rather than trading CO2 credits. http://www.polb.com/environment/green_port_policy/default.asp This is an example of doing something productive. Prince Charles should know that trading CO2 credits and converting his cars won't change the world. Pollution control programs will and they have the added benefit for being non-tradeable. American companies are changing while Japanese are trading. I guess Al Gore is an American Prince.

Some interesting comments so far, although I would differ in opinion from most: OgieDogie: This years oil price hike injured the US ecomony badly, many are still smarting from it. I would be suprised if it goes away quietly. Many (ordinary people) will be demanding alternate sources of energy to protect a whole economy from burning up. Fatloser: I think Japan is quite advanced in efforts to find ways by technical means to reduce energy consumption. Simple stuff like low energy lightbulbs are now common place here. Japan signed up to the Kyoto Treaty, the US refused (or GWB did) saying it would hurt their economy. Carbon trading is very common in the EU. It isn't a solution to consumption but it keeps awaweness high and focuses people on trying to reduce. Some14some: Hopefully "peasants" like me! ;)

Many people expect "warming" to affect us immediately - it probably wont. The recent hot summers and freak weather are (I believe - and I'm not a scientist) just cyclical items that will come and go. Nature acts over the longer term and it will be our children or most likely their children that will suffer if we continue to use the earths natural resources without any regard for sustainability. Just think of all the people in India and China who are on the verge of affording to buy a car and what affect that can have - I doubt if the cars they buy would be toyota Prius'!

Some very misled people on here.

Converting cars, etc. WILL help the environment, and will help the consumers -- at least in the long run if not the very short one. As gyouza rightly pointed out, oil prices hit the economy, and in particular the US, extremely hard. If those prices had stayed the way they were during the current final crisis it would have been insanity over there. Oil prices, save on flights, are now much lower in general than they were even two weeks ago, but your foolish if you think it will stay that way. Oil is a limited resource, and others should be sought out NOW, not once the world gets desperate again.

I agree on one point with many posters, that reduction of waste in general is as effective as CO2 credit swapping.

smithinjapan - Some very misled people on here.

Oh, yeah Smith! You've got that right! And, Prince Charles is right too! Global Warming is more important than the financial crisis. Some of the economic crisis can be blamed on Global Warming due to poor crops, severe storm damage, drought, etc.

Global Warming will create an Ice Age! The melting polar ice caps will slow the ocean currents in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans, which currently carry warm air from the equator to the polar regions keeping the Earth's temperate climate. However, when these currents slow down the earth will freeze over. This is a similar hypothesis used in 'The Day After Tomorrow' movie, but it will be much worse than the movie and will last for centuries, not days.

His "snobbishness" aside, he is absoutely right. Economies have always gone up or down over the centuries. Our environment however is on a steady downward trend. Anyone who knows anything about this problem knows that we are already in danger. Coral reefs are dying, glaciers are melting at alaming rates. With continued rampant deforestation and continued increases in fossil fuels being pumped into the atmosphere, the Earths environment is going to rapidly deteriorate. I dont care what people like OgieDogie say. It is already happening.

Today, the news said that the possibility of rain is zero percent...we just had a brief rainshower. If the computers they are using can't even predict the the chances of rain in a day, how come they can predict the climate in the next 1,000 years? I say, this climate change is all BS

http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,944914,00.html

Err - have you read the article? It quote 3 scientist on the global cooling that was recorded at the time, and then says:

Scientists figure that only a 1% decrease in the amount of sunlight hitting the earth's surface could tip the climatic balance, and cool the planet enough to send it sliding down the road to another ice age within only a few hundred years.

Yup - if the sunlight decreased. No prediction that an ice age was coming - and the phrase "the coming ice age" is not featured in the article at all, as you suggested.

Prince Charles is something of an eccentric, but likeable. This report is wrong in saying it is his first visit since 1970 - he was here I think in the early 1990s, with his first wife, Princess Diana, when she wowed the crowds along Omote Sando and Aoyama Dori.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Oh I say hoserfella. Were the glaciers and polar ice caps melting and breaking off at the same rate 50 years ago as now? The hottest years on record have all been in the last 20 years. Rainforests and all forests for that matter were still plentiful 50 years ago and as a result offset the CO2 released into the atmosphere. Do you know anything about this issue or do you just like to rant about nothing? Anyone who does not heed the warning signals is out of touch. Not Prince Charles. You are talking about ONE year in your last rant. Scientists are talking about patterns over many years. Have you been up to Greenland and measured weather patterns deep into glaciers? Of course it may differ from year to year. Thus the word unpredictable. No one is asking anyone to run for the hills for any reason. Who said that? You are just one of those who will put down anyone who cares about the Earth and the greater good of people. Would it hurt people to live a little more responsibly towards the environment? And as for the word "suckers", people who have anxiety about the future of the planet are from from suckers.

If the pesky peasants would just give up their attempts to better themselves global warming wouldn't be an issue, eh? Don't worry Charlie, when unemployment goes high enough people won't be able to afford to run their cars (except those of the upper class, of course) so there will be a big cut in CO2 right there.

Starviking - Well, I'll be. Looks like you're right. After reviewing many of the 1970s articles, it looks like most, if not all of the articles were basically journalists taking scientists' observations about global cooling and then scaring the public into believing that another ice age could be on the way. In other words it was journalists who were pushing that. The experts knew better. Just as you said.

I have always erred on the side of sceptics and require proof for things, but there is another way of looking at it:

1) Man made global warming is a fact - Outcomes: a) change behaviour, save the earth b) ignore, be a sceptic, ruin the planet

2) Global warming is a myth Outcomes: a) change behaviour, mildly inconvenience yourself b) ignore, be a sceptic, find out that you were right all along and the irritating environmentalist were just whingeing do-gooders.

So the outcomes are either 1a or 2a OR 2a or 2b. Or a case of better be sage than sorry.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The odd thing is that the solution to Global Warming and the Financial Crisis are the same. The idea is that to stop/slow Global Warming one needs to reduce their waste/consume less. The financial crisis was created by people over consuming, the obvious long-term solution to the financial crisis is stop over consuming. For the last few years the wife and I have been focused on making or life styles more efficient, which in process has made us slightly more enviromentally friendly but the best part is our discretionary income % has increased from about 65% to 75%(less worry about the financial crisis).

usaexpat: Prince Charles' constitutional position is another subject, but there's no doubt that what he's saying is correct. There ain't much point having economy prosperity if the cost of such "success" is to cause the planet's ecosystem to collapse.

Criticising someone for raising the issue is daft - after all, the one man who can make a really substantial difference to the problem - your President - has spent the last 8 years encouraging all of the trends that make global warming worse, not to mention wasting hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars on making the world a more dangerous and unhappy place. If you want to talk about wasting taxpayers money, lI suggest that you look at where your own taxes are being spent first...

I would rather tend to suspect what he suggests is that we should enlarge the trading market of CO2 credits as part of the efforts to find a way out of the present financial crisis. Trading of CO2 credits, as some people argue, is just another "derivative" contrived by using the financial engineering and scapegoating all of a sudden a substance which is necessary for photosynthesis and is constantly swapped between greenery and air. Royalty seems to be a laudable publicity for British national strategy with an authentic touch. Even though it's perhaps not a becoming remark for a prince to say outspokenly that financial crisis is more important than global warming, he may or may not be aware that tsunami of credit crunch worldwide is going to strike us all irreversibly.

In the following url you can see satellite pictures which were recently printed in a British newspaper showing Arctic ice coverage in 1997 compared to 2007. These pictures originally came from the World Wildlife Fund, an organisation of which Princes Charles' father is a patron and former president.

<i>Climate change is 'faster and more extreme' than feared</i>

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/3226747/Climate-change-is-faster-and-more-extreme-than-feared.html#comments

If you look carefully you will see that the 1997 picture has been doctored to show more ice than was actually there. The top half of both pictures are <i>exactly</i> the same (ie: no change over a 10 year period) while it can be seen that the 'ice' in the bottom half of the 1997 picture has been airbrushed in.

It's interesting that an organisation which Charles' father is closely associated with needs to resort to photoshop to sell their propaganda. But I'll give Charles the benefit of the doubt - maybe he hasn't been told that Arctic ice coverage has increased over last year. This year has seen a 31% increase in ice coverage over the previous year, or roughly the same size as Germany.

Now, if anyone wants to compare the difference between actual Arctic ice coverage in September 1979 and September 2007 you can check it out at http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/ (There's a link at the bottom of the page).

Now the images returned have a different orientation than the Telegraph images - but they are pretty similar, if not identical - lots of ice loss off Eastern Siberia, Western North America.

If you bothered to look at the actual WWF Report you'd see that there's no pictures comparing Arctic ice coverage therein

Yes, you're right, there are no pictures with the WWF report. But the report does say; "The latest science shows that the Arctic Ocean is losing sea ice up to 30 years ahead of IPCC predictions. It is now predicted that the summer sea ice could completely disappear between 2013 and 2040 – something that hasn’t occurred in more than a million years."

http://www.panda.org/about_wwf/what_we_do/climate_change/news/index.cfm?uNewsID=148141

It's interesting they would say such a thing when Arctic ice cover has now returned to a situation which is within normal limits for this time of year while the amount of summer ice this year was much more than in 2007.

Also, while the WWF issues these extreme warnings they also offer luxury package tours which do nothing for the environment and emissions of CO2. If they really believed man was causing the earth to warm then I don't think they would be so confident about offering luxury world-wide tours in a private jet.

For a price tag that starts at $64,950 per person, travelers will meet at the Ritz-Carlton in Orlando, Fla. on April 6, 2009 and then fly to “remote corners” of the world on a “specially outfitted jet that carries just 88 passengers in business-class comfort.”

Also, the Telegraph is comparing 1979 ice coverage to 2007 - there is no 1997 picture.

You're right about their being no 1997 picture. The Telegraph has taken the 2007 photo and used it for the 1997 pic. (after doctoring it, of course.) To say it's exaggerated image is an exaggeration. It's a straight out lie.

All related to price of oil (Farmers use petro-chemicals for fertilizer, transporting, and such. Houses are powered/heated by(gas and/or gas powerplants sometimes). Reducing the use of petro-chemicals, should make it cheaper to feed your family and keep roof over your head, as well it keeps the wealth in the US and it helps a neighbor feed his family and keep a roof over his head. I'm fence-sitting on the whole global warming idea but I most certianly believe in peak oil.
