‘Prince Philip was a climate change sceptic’: Outsiders

Prince Philip who died on Friday aged 99 “was a climate change sceptic” says Sky News host Rowan Dean. Mr Dean revealed a letter which the Duke of Edinburgh sent in 2018 to climate expert Ian Plimer which complimented Mr Plimer on his recent book ‘The Climate Change Delusion’. In the letter Prince Philip goes on to describe wind turbines as “monstrosities” and questions whether they serve any practical purpose. Mr Dean said, “the prince attempted to invite Professor Plimer to London to address the Royal Society of British Artists on climate change back in 2010 but the invitation was disgracefully rescinded by the ‘mandarins’ at Buckingham Palace for political reasons”. Buckingham Palace withdrew the invitation and pointed out the issue of climate change had become “highly politically charged” and the Royal Family sought to avoid appearing to support a political stance. Mr Dean said “what is extraordinary about that letter is that … it points out the royal family should have nothing to do with the politics of climate change”. He pointed out a decade later Prince Charles was a major advocate for the Great Reset and Greta Thunberg and Prince William was a supporter of David Attenborough. Both future monarchs are “in politics up to their eyeballs,” he said.
