    Prince Charles, addressing a small business group in London, called climate change a bigger danger than terrorism. The heir to the British throne urged business to take advantage of technology to become more energy efficient. He was speaking at a meeting of the Confederation of British Industry, The Scotsman reported. The prince quoted John Coomber, a director of an organization that assesses risk who called global warming the number one risk in the world, ahead of terrorism and demographic change. 'I think he has got a point,' Prince Charles said.

    Prince Charles launched his 'green revolution' with a stark warning that we are all 'living on borrowed time' if we don't stop eating up the world's resources. In a forthright speech in front of leading figures, including Prime Minister Tony Blair, the Prince said: 'We are consuming the resources of our planet at such a rate that we are, in effect, living off credit and living on borrowed time. 'It is our children and grandchildren who will have to pay off this debt and we owe it to them and ourselves to do something about it before it is too...

    The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11. The Prince raised his concerns when he met senior Muslims in London in November 2001. The gathering took place just two months after the attacks on New York and Washington. "I find the language and rhetoric coming from America too confrontational," the Prince said, according to one leader at the meeting. Prince Charles, who is about to embark on his first official foreign tour...

    LONDON - Prince Charles says he believes the pace of climate change is terrifying and people are becoming too dependent on technology. In a rare TV interview ahead of his official tour of the United States next week, Charles expressed concern that economic progress is "upsetting the whole balance of nature." "You know, if you look at the latest figures on climate change and global warming ... they're terrifying, terrifying," Charles told CBS' "60 Minutes" in the interview aired Sunday. The prince is a keen environmentalist, but his office declined to say whether Charles will raise the issue of climate...

    Confrontation is a good thing By Mark Steyn (Filed: 01/11/2005) According to The Sunday Telegraph, on this week's whirlwind tour of the Great Satan, the Prince of Wales "will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam…because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11". His Royal Highness apparently finds the Bush approach to Islam "too confrontational". If the Prince wants to take a few examples of the non-confrontational approach with him to the White House, here's a couple pulled at random from the last week's news: the...

    THE PRINCE OF WALES and his new bride have taken America by storm this week. Across the nation, a frenzy of monarcho-mania has once again swept this great republic. Office workers clasping DVDs of the royal wedding in April have been hanging out of high-rise windows trying to catch a glimpse of the Prince’s motorcade as it sweeps triumphantly through city streets. Special souvenir copies of The Wall Street Journal with cut-out-and-keep guides to the couple’s couture have been flying off newsstands. Hairdressers are reporting a sudden surge in demand from middle-aged women for a new style — Camilla bangs....

    Is Prince Charles being groomed to become the Constantine of Islam in England? Prince Charles has arrived to America to for an eight-day tour. His mission is to persuade W. Bush and the Americans of “the merits of Islam”. He has voiced private concerns over America ’s "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths. He thinks United States has been too intolerant of the religion. What is behind this interest in Islam? Why would the Prince of Wales become an ambassador of this Arabian religion?

    The Prince of Wales was at the White House last week, hoping, the Daily Telegraph reported, "to convince President Bush of the merits of Islam . . . because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since Sept. 11, 2001." This is a drum Prince Charles has been beating for years. In 1993, for example, he scolded those in the West who peddled "unthinking prejudices" about Muslim culture -- for example, "that sharia law of the Islamic world is cruel, barbaric, and unjust." Two months after 9/11, he was lambasting the American attitude toward Islam...

    Prince Charles came to America in November to tell us that we don't understand Islam and we don't even try. You talk about a man who has been out of touch with reality for decades in his own personal life and now is going to lecture the White House on the "religion of peace." He says only a few bad apples are causing the problem, but then why don't the many "good apples" demonstrate like crazy about their violent brothers? Instead, their silence is deafening. Let's consider just a few items America has done to benefit Islam in this great...

    When it comes to Europe, the Islamists are definitely winning.  Just ask Prince Charles. Prince Charles of Wales and his new bride, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, have been in the United States, hobnobbing at the White House and imparting royal pearls of wisdom.  According to statements made prior to this visit, Prince Charles thinks the U.S. is “intolerant” towards Islam.  In Prince Charles’ view, it’s all gone downhill since 9/11 because of the Bush administration’s “confrontational” approach to Muslim countries.  In fact, he made these comments during a meeting with Muslim leaders soon after 9/11. Of course,...

    The Prince of Wales wants Britain to be transformed into an "organic oasis" with no chemicals used on any crops -even at the cost of imposing trade barriers and pulling out of the European Union (EU). He outlined his vision in a meeting with Lord Haskins, the former chairman of Northern Foods, who was appointed by Tony Blair to head a rural review. Prince Charles's comments are understood to have been privately dismissed by Haskins as ill-thought out and impractical. Charles's vision of Britain as an organic island was disclosed in the midst of controversy about his attempts to influence...

    The Prince of Wales sees himself as a "dissident" working against prevailing political consensus, according to a former senior aide whose disclosure is likely to provoke fresh debate about the role of the heir to the throne. Despite the best efforts of staff to "dampen down" the prince's eagerness to publicise his views on sensitive subjects, it was difficult to argue he was "not political", said Mark Bolland, his former deputy private secretary. Sir Michael Peat has dismissed Mark Bolland's claims The prince's self-appointed "campaigning role" was "constitutionally controversial", claimed Mr Bolland and had not "so far as I am...

    LONDON - Putting his money where his environmentalist mouth is, Prince Charles is swapping gas-guzzling private planes and helicopters for commercial flights, train journeys and biodiesel cars. A longtime champion of green causes, the heir to the throne says action is needed now to avoid leaving a ruined planet to the next generation. "From February, we are going to look at the diary and see what we can do to reduce our carbon footprint," a spokeswoman for the prince's London residence, Clarence House, said Thursday on condition of anonymity in line with royal rules. "Wherever possible, we will be making...

    In an effort to reduce his "carbon footprint," Prince Charles has announced through a spokesperson that, "Wherever possible, we will be making less use of helicopters and chartered planes and rely more on car journeys, scheduled flights and trains." But planet saving may not be the prince’s only motive. The Associated Press notes that "pressure to be more cost-effective has seen the scrapping of the royal yacht Britannia and cuts in the use of the royal train." The Stiletto bets that whenever he flies on a commercial jet, The Royal We will be sitting in First Class with all the...

    You’ll no doubt recall the Big Announcement England’s Prince Charles made about a month ago about reducing his "carbon footprint" by taking commercial flights instead of royal helicopters and private planes. At the time, The Stiletto predicted he would insulate himself from the discomforts of today’s cramped and dirty planes by commandeering the first-class section. The Stiletto underestimated his chutzpah.His Royal Minus and a 20-member posse have booked the entire first-class and business-class sections – 62 seats in all, according to thisislondon.co.uk – for a flight to New York later this month. "This means their effective 'carbon footprint' is three...

    A Christian group is calling on Prince Charles to take the title 'Defender of the Faith' when he is crowned king. The Evangelical Alliance, which represents Christians across the UK, will make the submission in its Faith and Nation report due to be launched tomorrow. The Prince has previously said he would like to be sworn as the 'Defender of Faith', taking into account the numerous religious groups represented in Great Britain. Charles will become Supreme Governor of the Church of England when he is crowned king. But the Evangelical Alliance, which represents over one million evangelical Christians in the...
