Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will have two children — at the most — to help save the planet and slow down climate change, the duke of Sussex said in an interview with environmental activist Jane Goodall.
In an interview published in an issue of British Vogue that was guest-edited by Markle, Prince Harry said fatherhood has made him more aware of the environment. The New York Daily News reported:
“‘It does make it different,’ he said, adding that he has ‘always had a connection and a love for nature’ and has ‘always wanted to try and ensure that, even before having a child and hoping to have children.'”
“‘Not too many!’ Goodall said with a chuckle.”
“‘Two, maximum!’ Harry said. ‘But I’ve always thought: this place is borrowed. And, surely, being as intelligent as we all are, or as evolved as we all are supposed to be, we should be able to leave something better behind for the next generation.'”
“But, in fact, we’ve stolen their future,” Goodall said, pouring on the alarmism. “Not all of it. But we’ve got to try and pay a little of it back. And get together to try and heal some of the harm, and at least slow down climate change.”
The guest-edited issue features highlights of “15 influential women,” including “teen climate activist Greta Thunberg, Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern and former First Lady Michelle Obama, who Markle interviewed herself,” The New York Daily News reported.
Climate alarmism has been a political staple, of late, for Democrats. For example, in February, Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) (AOC) suggested during an Instagram Live video that having children in the current times is morally ambiguous. “Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult,” she said. “And it does lead, I think, young people to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children?'”
“Like, we need a universal sense of urgency, and people are like trying to introduce watered-down proposals that are frankly going to kill us. A lack of urgency is going to kill us,” added Ocasio-Cortez.
In January, the elected Democrat suggested the world was going to end in 12 years if we don’t make radical changes to save the planet. “I think the part of it that is generational is that millennials and people, in Gen Z, and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, the world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” said AOC, speaking at a Martin Luther King forum in New York City. “And your biggest issue, your biggest issue is how are we going to pay for it — and like this is the war, this is our World War II.”
Mayor Pete Buttigieg echoed the 12-year climate claim at Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate, telling the audience that science shows the “climate ‘horizon of catastrophe’ will be reached in 12 years,” noted CNN.
Warming up the debate crowd in Detroit, Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez warned that climate change is a threat to the “universe,” as reported by The Daily Wire.
