Pure farce: alarmist Prince Charles travels by Airbus; suggests solar powered garbage cans might help save Canada from overheating

"Unless we can all, both individually and collectively, take the actions which we now know are necessary, the future is going to be very bleak indeed."
Charles, a green advocate long before it became stylish, praised the sort of Canadian innovation that's on display at the eco-friendly Whistler Olympic village in B.C. for the 2010 Winter Games.

"Water harvesting, recycling, efficient and renewable energy usage and even solar powered garbage cans," he said.

"These and other measures are, if I may say so, of the greatest possible importance."
Charles and Camilla arrived earlier in the day at the St. John's International Airport in clear, cold weather and under a full moon rising.

They came down the stairs of an Airbus jet separately...

Prince Charles is being accused of hypocrisy after it was revealed that he is chartering a luxury private jet for a five-day tour of Europe to promote environmental issues.
But instead of using scheduled flights, the Royal party has hired a private plane, thought to be an Airbus A319.
The flights on the specially converted jet, which boasts a master suite with its own lavatory and shower, will cost an estimated £80,000 - five times more than business-class fares on scheduled airlines.
