Prince Charles Embarks on a 16,000-Mile Global Warming Crusade — By Private Jet

With the situation looking so bleak for Western Civilization, we could all use a little laugh — so the Prince of Wales may be good for something after all. The latest chuckle from Charles:

Prince Charles was accused of hypocrisy last night for using a private jet on an 'environmental' tour of South America.
The prince will travel to the region next month in a visit costing an estimated £300,000 as part of his crusade against global warming.
He will use a luxury airliner to transport himself, the Duchess of Cornwall and a 14-strong entourage to Chile, Brazil and Ecuador on a 16,400-mile round trip.

Aides insist that Prince Chucklehead will offset his emissions — possibly meaning that the taxpayer will also be on the hook for a bottle of Beano.

Prince Chuckles has an emissions problem.
