The Daily Grind of Being Green

Princess Michael of Kent joins conservation crusade in the Bahamas - Telegraph

The Princess flew to Nassau in the Bahamas on Friday to support a charity set up by her friend the late Sir Nicholas Nuttall, who moved to the island in the 1970s as a tax exile, to protect the reef and fish stocks in the area.
As patron of the Bahamas Reef Environment Educational Foundation (BREEF), she was guest of honour at a ball on Saturday night whose riotous theme was A Nostalgic Evening in Old Nassau, celebrating the "fabulous era of native clubs, food, entertainment and dancing".

The toil and trouble the poor dear puts herself through to raise our awareness of conservation, a veritable saint.

Meanwhile, Prince Michael apparently does not share his spouse's passion for preserving ocean life. Instead of joining his wife, the Queen's cousin decided to attend a shooting party here.


No Ice Water for You

says Rajendra Pachauri, head of the oh-so "policy neutral" IPCC

Hotel guests should have their electricity monitored; hefty aviation taxes should be introduced to deter people from flying; and iced water in restaurants should be curtailed, the world's leading climate scientist has told the Observer.

Rajendra Pachauri, the chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), warned that western society must undergo a radical value shift if the worst effects of climate change were to be avoided. A new value system of "sustainable consumption" was now urgently required, he said.

"Today we have reached the point where consumption and people's desire to consume has grown out of proportion," said Pachauri. "The reality is that our lifestyles are unsustainable."

Kill them. Kill them all. Not the royals, just the conservationists and global warming supporters.
