Climate expert Prince Charles calls Earth "sick patient," warns of "death certificate"

Chicago's Burnham Harbor in 2014
Prince Charles--note climate change expert and a genius in everything else--warned in 2009 that humans had "less than 100 months" to save Earth from global warming. That means the sun would set--metaphorically at least--on the planet in 2017.

HRH didn't set a date in his latest planetary forecast--but he's still a global warming believer.

From the Guardian:
Speaking to health experts at the Royal Society in London on Wednesday, Charles said: "We can only pray that our sick planetary patient might be placed on a road to recovery, in the process bringing gains for human well-being.

"Failure to write the prescription, however, might leave us contemplating the death certificate instead.

"So, my fervent hope is that you can find the means to make the difference that our world so desperately needs."
Meanwhile, for the second year in a row, the Great Lakes are almost completely frozen over, despite human-caused global warming. A record for most Great Lakes ice could be set this weekend.
