The Prince of Wales launched a stinging attack on “climate sceptics” deriding them for peddling “pseudo science”.

In a speech to world business leaders at a climate change seminar Charles criticised the group for apparently intimidating people from “adopting the precautionary measures necessary to avert environmental collapse”.

Some experts dispute global predictions for climate change mainly because changes to the planet’s climate have occurred in the past, due to natural causes.

Leading figures such as former Conservative chancellor Lord Lawson and environmentalist and broadcaster David Bellamy added their voices to others questioning the conclusions of global warming ‘believers’.

Charles, speaking yesterday at the event staged by the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership at St James’ Palace, did not mention any sceptics by name but said: “People have heard the climate sceptics and attempted to listen to the kind of pseudo science they are peddling…I have endlessly been accused of peddling pseudo science, in one way or another, for most of my life – just think about the strange irony.”
