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".

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.
