Prince Charles, who now identifies as King, unveils a Royal clock
Counting down to climate disaster on Planet Earth
You know he’s been planning this move for years, while waiting for his mum to pass on.
“I’m going to have a clock. It’ll mark the minutes to the end of all life, unless we build Dutch windmills from Argentina to Nome. I AM the clock blocker.”
King Charles III of the United Kingdom launched a new clock that will count down until 2030—a year the government claims will mark serious consequences for the world's climate.
The Climate Clock was unveiled at the Climate Innovation Forum held at Guild Hall in London on Wednesday.
“Today with His Majesty King Charles III we launched the Climate Clock—a visual reminder of the urgency of the climate crisis,” said London Mayor Sadiq Khan [Con].
Khan joined the king for the event, ceremonially pressing the button and activating the countdown clock.
The clock is inspired by the latest claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and Millennium Challenge Corporation that in order to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees, actions must be taken in the next six years.
“The Climate Clock tells us what to do and by when. The Deadline and Lifelines on the Climate Clock make explicit the speed and scope of action that we must take to limit the worst climate impacts,” a spokesperson for London Climate Week wrote on social media.

“Everybody start brushing your teeth with toilet water today. Don’t turn on faucets.”
“You kids out there. Today, blow up three oil refineries.”
Yes, now we know what Prince Charles was doing all those years while he was waiting to ascend the throne. He was huddling and planning with clock makers.
Isn’t it time for America to give up the Great Experiment and rejoin the Commonwealth under the Man Who Would Be King and forget 1776?
OK, it was fun while it lasted, but now let’s get serious. Charley’s leading the way, and if we don’t abandon oil altogether, we’ll have to block the sun with awnings in outer space, and that could spawn new problems.
Earth never had climate crises before the Industrial Revolution. The melting end of the Ice Age is a myth. Propounded by Donald Trump.
COVID was caused by climate. The virus was lying dormant until it was activated by rising heat, from all those fish and bat fryers in Wuhan.
As usual, I have my own plan. My readers know I’m all about solutions.
I’ve calculated we can make significant progress toward cooling, if:
