Um, Chuck, Al Beat You To It

Somebody ought to break it to this dunce that a certain bloated former politician already cornered the market on this scam.
PRINCE Charles will focus on the threat big business poses to the environment in a new book and documentary due for release next year.

The project has been named Harmony and Charles will follow in the footsteps of former US vice-president Al Gore, whose film An Inconvenient Truth won an Oscar and helped him earn the Nobel Peace Prize.

Publisher HarperCollins says the Prince's book will argue humans have become dangerously disconnected from nature through their relentless pursuit of economic growth and technological progress.

In a statement released by the Rupert Murdoch-owned publishing house, Prince Charles said people had "a sacred duty of stewardship of the natural order of things".

"In some of our actions we now behave as if we were masters of nature and, in others, as mere bystanders," he said.

"If we could rediscover that sense of harmony; that sense of being a part of, rather than apart from nature, we would perhaps be less likely to see the world as some sort of gigantic production system, capable of ever-increasing outputs for our benefit - at no cost."

This from a guy who once fantasized about reincarnated as a tampon.
