The Prince of Wales has warned that the world faces a series of natural disasters within 18 months unless urgent action is taken to save the rainforests.So how did Charles know that ZOMG we're all going to die!!!1!!one!?
He conceded that at times he had been forced to keep his counsel when he would have liked to have spoken out. "You learn as you go along. I am going to be 60 this year. I would be a blinding idiot if I had not learnt a bit by now."Well hold on, there Scooter. So how's that 18 Month Plan working out?
A phrase associated with that great Roman, Julius Caesar, is of course "crossing the Rubicon". Last month, in Brazil, I warned that the scientific evidence showed we had less than one hundred months before we were at our own Rubicon and there was no going back. We now only have ninety-nine months – actually very nearly ninety-eight, before we reach the point of no return, with decisions that will lock us in to our future course. [Emphasis mine - ed.]18, 100, "very nearly ninety-eight", whatever. The science is settled!
Hey you deniers! Get the heck off my lawn!
