Peter Mandelson: Prince Charles's remarks on GM crops 'irresponsible' | Politics | The Guardian
The Prince of Wales made frequent representations about areas of public policy he believed were misguided, according to Mandelson.
Tony Blair asked Peter Mandelson to tell the Prince of Wales to stop his "unhelpful" attempts to influence government policy on genetically modified crops.
In a sign of the private irritation among ministers at the prince's interference over the years, Mandelson accuses him of being "anti-scientific and irresponsible", in the third instalment of his memoirs

Prince Charles attacks climate change sceptics | Environment | guardian.co.uk
The Prince of Wales last night launched an attack on climate sceptics, deriding them for peddling "pseudo science".
In a speech to world business leaders at a climate change seminar, Charles criticised such sceptics for apparently intimidating people from "adopting the precautionary measures necessary to avert environmental collapse".
Charles, speaking yesterday at the event staged by the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership at St James's palace, did not mention any sceptics by name but said: "People have heard the climate sceptics and attempted to listen to the kind of pseudo science they are peddling ... I have endlessly been accused of peddling pseudo science, in one way or another, for most of my life - just think about the strange irony."

At least he recognises it.

How would Charles know the difference between real and pseudo science? My guess is he knows the square root of nothing about it!

Chuckles, with Moonbat, are two High Priest specialising in non-science/nonsense. To say climate sceptics are peddling pseudo science is rich coming from this twit.

In reality, there are too many pseudo scientists (like himself), still peddling Mann-made climate hypotheses, unable or unwilling to correct themselves even though scare stories, such as the hockey-stick graph, have been shown to be exaggerated fictions.
