    It's the thought that counts. He's getting on a bit to be gluing himself to artworks. Mind you, there's undoubtedly some monstrous electric Rangie not far away.

    You should write to him. Tell him your thoughts. I am sure he would read it.

    I guess Landreth would love a job as one of Charles many valets.

    Think of the variety of tasks, putting exactly one inch of toothpaste on his brush, ironing his shoelaces, fucking Camilla etc etc

    As soon as the envelopes with the correct scent and all the rest of it turn up it’ll be on.
    Something along the lines of ‘you know what to do so let’s see some action’ should cover it.
    Oh and ‘invoice attached’ too of course. I’m providing a service after all.

    Nope. You might not get anyone to respond. Put some effort into it. You’re a bore and an idiot. Your survices aren’t worth squat.

    King Charles III has issued a new statement on Cop27 attendance after the United Kingdom' new Prime Minister's major U-turn as Rishi Sunak confirmed he will head to Egypt for the upcoming climate change summit.

    Buckingham Palace said in a statement: "As it was made clear previously, in unanimous agreement with Government His Majesty will not be attending COP27.

    "His focus is on the pre-COP reception at Buckingham Palace this Friday, where senior business leaders, experts and NGOs can discuss the important work of the summit and explore ways in which public-private partnership can help tackle climate change.

    "His Majesty looks forward to hosting the PM and other global leaders at the event."

    It comes after Sunak confirmed his attendance at the event, saying "there is no long-term prosperity without action on climate change," adding: "no energy security without investing in renewables."

    Prior to his trip to Egypt, Mr Sunak will be among the guests at Friday's reception hosted by the King at Buckingham Palace.

    Charles has issued warnings about air and plastic pollution as well as climate change.

    He’s everywhere. Maybe




    We will soon know the fate of the $5 note, with the Reserve Bank (RBA) deciding whether to replace Queen Elizabeth II’s face with that of her son, King Charles III.

    RBA governor Philip Lowe said the central bank was currently consulting with the Government following the Queen’s death.

    “We recognise that this is an issue that is of national interest and there is a long tradition of the monarch being on Australia’s banknotes,” Dr Lowe said at an RBA board dinner last night.

    “The monarch has been on at least one of Australia’s banknotes since 1923 and was on all our notes until 1953.

    “Given this tradition and the national significance of the issue, the bank is consulting with the Australian Government, regarding whether or not the new $5 banknote should include a portrait of King Charles III.

    "We will make a decision after this consultation with the Government is complete."

    A decision is expected to be made within 18 months.

    In September, Assistant Minister for Treasury Andrew Leigh sparked debate when he said King Charles III would not “automatically” appear on the $5 note.

    "The decision to include the Queen’s face on the $5 note was about her personally rather than about her status as the monarch, so that transition isn’t automatic," he said at the time.

    There are growing calls for an Australian to be the new face of the $5 note, with suggestions including Uncle Jack Charles and Steve Irwin.

    He’ll have a way smaller carbon footprint than Landreth, so there’s that.

    King Charles III has hosted a reception to discuss tackling climate change, as global leaders prepare for the UN climate summit COP27.

    About 200 politicians and campaigners met at Buckingham Palace, including PM Rishi Sunak, US climate envoy John Kerry and COP President Alok Sharma.

    The King is internationally known for his climate work but it was agreed he would not go to COP27.

    The UN conference begins on Sunday in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt.

    Mr Sunak told the meeting that the UK's global leadership on climate change will continue after its COP presidency ends this week. The UK hosted COP26 in Glasgow last year.

    "Every moment that we allow climate change to ravage our planet we will see more human suffering," he said.

    "If we do not act today we will risk leaving an ever more desperate inheritance for our children tomorrow."

    Mr Sunak, who will attend the opening days of the summit, had faced fierce criticism from climate activists and opposition politicians for initially saying he would not go due to pressing matters in the UK.

    The prime minister paid tribute to King Charles's work on climate, saying he had worked for 50 years to find solutions, long before the first UN COP meeting.

    When former PM Liz Truss entered No 10, it was announced King Charles would not go to the summit.

    The monarch has a long-standing interest in environmental issues and attended COP26 in Glasgow last year, but the Palace said it had sought advice from then-PM Ms Truss and that "with mutual friendship and respect there was agreement that the King would not attend".

    On Thursday a spokesperson for Mr Sunak said, "had the prime minister been in post earlier the situation might have been different".

    Buckingham Palace says the reception on Friday afternoon was organised to "facilitate discussion of sustainable growth, progress made since COP26 in Glasgow and collective and continued efforts to tackle climate change."

    At COP26 in Glasgow last year, the King told leaders: "I can only urge you, as the world's decision-makers, to find practical ways of overcoming differences so we can all get down to work, together, to rescue this precious planet and save the threatened future of our young people."

    Buckingham Palace has been very consistent; it says King Charles is not disappointed that he will not be going to the UN climate conference in Egypt.

    The decision was made during discussions between the King and the then Prime Minister, Liz Truss, it says.

    That may be so, but today's event is a signal of how important the climate issue remains for King Charles.

    He has decided to bring part of the conference to Buckingham Palace by convening this meeting of key figures from his Sustainable Markets Initiative (SMI).

    The SMI and its Terra Carta Action Forum aim to spur business to up its efforts on climate change.

    King Charles has long argued getting the private sector involved in the climate issue is essential.

    Remember it’s policy not just what one individual can do. As what recently happen in the US, Australia and Brazil.

    Voting is critical. Everything starts at the voting booth.

    US..........

    Biden signs Inflation Reduction Act affecting health, climate and the economy

    With the signing of the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) on Tuesday Aug 16, the most significant climate legislation in US federal history (so far) became law.

    Australia.........

    Passes a climate bill

    Independent MP Dr Sophie Scamps has given her support to the Greens climate trigger legislation:

    The science is clear, we must stop burning fossil fuels such as oil, coal, and gas if we are to avert the worst impacts of climate change. It is estimated there are over 100 new coal and gas projects up for assessment under the EPBC Act. We need to ensure the impact from the emissions that these projects will create are assessed and that approvals under our national environmental law are not just a smokescreen that provide fossil fuel companies cover to continue profiteering while destroying Australia’s environment.

    The Albanese government cannot have it both ways. They cannot say the climate wars ‘are over’ and legislate our emissions reduction targets while also refusing to act on the root cause of climate change – fossil fuels.

    It is time our national environmental laws were strengthened. And the first step in doing so, is ensuring every major project is assessed for its future climate change impacts – our environment, our economic prosperity and our future depends on it.

    Brazil........

    Bolsonaro election loss could cut Brazilian Amazon deforestation by 89%

    A victory for left-wing challenger and current frontrunner Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva – commonly known as Lula – could avoid 75,960km2 of Amazon rainforest loss by 2030, the analysis shows – an area roughly the size of Panama. This would also significantly curb Brazil’s emissions when accompanied by a new focus on forest restoration.

    Science and continued awareness,.........rule.

    Horrid Henry doesn't seem to have inherited any oracle genes from his distinguished father.
