Prince Harry told Oprah that the world we live in is “depressing” for children growing up today. He said that depending on where you are, your country is either on fire or underwater and houses and forests are being destroyed. “Climate Change is really playing an important part in all of this, as well as social media. And we just don’t – I mean, I know lots if people out there are trying to fix these issues – but that whole analogy of walking into a bathroom with a mop if the bath is too full, rather than turning off the tap.”

He stated, “Is there really an moment, a reckoning time, post-COVID where we can actually take a look at each other, take a look at ourselves, decide that we need to do more about stopping or allowing things that are causing so great harm to so many of you at the source, rather then being distracted from the symptom?” 

However, their environmental rhetoric hasn’t stopped them from flying around the world in private jets. 

The couple flew private jets to Ibiza, France, and Nice, France, in 2019. Harry acknowledged that “no one can be perfect” in his private jet usage, but stated that “we all have a responsibility to our individual impact.” According to reports, Meghan Markle, Harry’s wife, wasn’t bothered about the hypocrisy charges. 

The couple had a successful wedding last year pledgeTo become carbon-neutral before the end of this decade.

Biden’s climate czar is a climate hypocrite and has been accused of multiple environmental crimes. In 2019, Kerry defended flying privately to Iceland in order to receive an environmental award, claiming it was “the only choice” for someone like him. By 2021, Fox News reported that the same jet emitted 30 times the amount of carbon produced by an average passenger per year.

Despite this, Kerry is often praised as a climate representative. Kerry was ridiculed further for framing Russia’s-Ukraine conflict through a climate change lens.

“Massive emission consequences to the war but equally important, you’re going to lose focus. Kerry stated that the war will result in a loss of attention for large countries. They will be diverted and it could have a detrimental impact.
