Go Green: STAY HOME

February 17, 2009

Britain’s Prince Charles is about to embark on a 16-thousand mile “green tour” to South America next month that he hopes will draw attention to environmental sustainability and climate change issues.  But maybe the Prince could better Greenify by staying home.

The Prince is taking a 14-person entourage, including his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, valet and various attendants, and flying onboard a private jet with a VIP lounge, Master Suite, satellite phone, printer, fax and luxury leather seats.  The Prince’s aides say the tour would be “impossible without a private jet.”  He is, after all, a Prince, right?

Prince Charles has long been a champion of environmental issues.  He’s very well regarded as knowledgeable about plants and vegetation.  His spokesman says he was asked by the government to make this trip because of the “important issues” involved.   But is he apparently so focused on looking for the forest that he’s missing the trees?

British Labour MP Ian Davidson, a member of the United Kingdom Parliament's public accounts committee, called the cost absurd and said, “"At a time when the greed of bankers is causing much adverse comment, I would have thought that Prince Charles would have had more sense than to be so financially and ecologically wasteful."

His trip scheduled for March will leave a 322 metric ton carbon footprint.  The cost, according to London newspaper, “Mail on Sunday” is expected to be about $820,000.  A spokesman says he will “offset his carbon emissions.”  Does that mean he’ll drive a Prius while he’s on the ground?

Really, Your Majesty, do us a kindness and send a letter.  Better yet, Greenify and send an email.
