Prince Charles, who has described climate change as the “biggest threat to mankind,” is flying to New York City later this month to receive a Global Environmental Citizen prize from Harvard Medical School’s Centre for Health and the Global Environment from none other than Al “Alternate PowerPoint” Gore. He’s travelling by scheduled flight instead of a chartered or private jet in order to, as he likes to put it, “reduce his carbon footprint.” He’s booked the entire first-class and business class section of a jumbo jet for the 20 people going with him. Unfortunately those sections hold 62 people, meaning their carbon footprint is three times what it would be if every seat was used. Ya gotta hate those technicalities.
