Almost. Although he sounds even more hysterical than last week.
PRINCE Charles has compared human inactivity over climate change to frogs being boiled alive, and says we can't see the way the environment is changing because we're too close to it.Of course that's utter nonsense, but why ruin a good scare tactic?
British tabloid The Sun reports the heir to the throne made his comments in the Amazon while on a tour of South America to raise awareness of climate change.
“The trouble is it's the old boiled frog syndrome," he said. "You can’t tell if you are in the water that it is gradually heating up. You just get used to the heat and you don’t notice until suddenly it reaches boiling point and it’s too late to do anything about it.”
Boiled frog syndrome refers to the idea that if you put a frog into boiling water it will jump out, but if you put it in cold water and slowly raise the temperature, it will be boiled alive. It isn’t true – when the water gets hot the frog will jump out, but it does make a nice metaphor.Maybe someone can come up with a god tampon metaphor. Would be much more appropriate for this douchebag.
“Nature has so many of the answers but we have somehow imagined that we can somehow defeat it, suppress it, squash it into a corner,” the Prince said.This at least gives us a timeframe to work with. Hopefully in eight years someone can remind this dolt how absurd his prediction was, assuming he's still around living on the public dole.
“The trouble is that nature will always come back and hit you in the teeth if you don’t respect her."
Yesterday, Prince Charles said we have only 100 months to save the world before time literally runs out.
