Danish Queen Blasphemes The CO2 High Priests

Queen Margrethe’s statement that ‘you can not change the climate’ gets a cold shoulder from several environmental organizations.

Both WWF and Greenpeace will now right with the queen during a tour of Greenland said about climate change: “there is nothing to do ‘.

– You can not change the climate when it cooks up though. It must look in his eyes, said the monarch among others.

But it is not true, says Greenpeace:

Do not know what she thought of
– I do not know what the Queen thought of when she says you can not do anything, says press officer for Greenpeace’s climate program, Christina Res.

– You can fortunately be doing something about climate change, and preferably sooner the better, she says.

    She’ll rue that statement on her last ride to visit the green reincarnation of the national razor.

    Three cheers to the Queen of Denmark! A great dose of reality!

    Here’s what she also stated, “that ‘one can not go out with a freezer and put new ice on a fjord. Det er, som det er’. It is as it is.”

  5. Paul H says:

    She must take after one of her more sensible ancestors, King Canute.

    ( For those who don’t know, he was not trying to hold back the tide; rather he was trying to prove to his advisors that it was impossible)

    Now if only Princess Charles could grow a brain.

  6. Blade says:

    Interesting! I was under the impression that Greenland was under the jurisdiction of Denmark somehow (too lazy to look it up).

    Logically the Danish would be expected to exploit the propaganda holding their hands out for AGW welfare of which Greenland is no doubt first in priority.

    I hope some folks from Scandinavia can flesh out the truth of the matter for those of us that live elsewhere.

    We can’t do anything about climate change. Because the climate changes itself. Such was the surprising forecast from Queen Margaret, who is visiting Greenland together with Prince Henrik.

    “We can do nothing. One can’t change the climate, when it will do it itself. We must look at the facts”, says the Queen after having been briefed on climate change and permafrost by Professor Bo Elberling at the Arctic station at Qeqertarsuaq. She added to her view by saying:

    “One can’t go out with a deep freezer and put new ice on the fiord, Can one? It is, what it is. At the same time one can say, that new fish species will come, and the fishing industry will have new opportunities.”

    With her statement the Queen is downplaying the view that climate change is man-made and that the greenhouse effect and the regulation of CO2 emissions has little impact on the future of the climate.

    In this she is in disagreement with the large majority of climate experts all over the world. And with the official view in this area, as for example as expressed on the Energy Ministry’s home page. Here it states:

    ”Climate change is one of the biggest challenges we face today. In the last 100 years the average global temperature has risen 0.74 degrees Celsius. The amount of CO2 in the atmosphere has risen 33% above pre-industrial levels. The IPCC estimates that the temperature will rise a further 1-4 degrees unless there are international agreements to limit emissions. If in the coming years we don’t undertake to stabilise and reduce the man-made causes for global warming, we can expect further increases in temperatures”.

    SF’s [Socialist Party, in opposition] spokesman on climate Anne Grete Holmsgaard, formerly a director at Denmarks Technical University, is disappointed by the Queen’s statement:

    ”She must have had bad advice. It is clear, that before one visits Greenland one can expect that questions will arise on this topic because climate changes are so clearly seen and are so important – especially for Greenlanders. And so she should have had better advice on what she should say”, says Anne Grete Holmsgaard.

    The queen is the most powerful piece in the game of chess, able to move any number of squares vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
