Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has addressed the Duchess of Sussex among other environmentalists including Greta Thunberg who have passionately championed climate. The Grand Tour host fumed that such "important people" have only made "matters worse".
The 60-year-old car enthusiast explained that while Britons should be concerned about saving the planet, it appears we are "fighting against the tide".
The small-screen star admitted it is difficult to focus on climate change when people are constantly being "told about other things which are apparently even more important?"
The former Top Gear host also took aim at Meghan who has been vocal about the climate crisis in recent months.
Jeremy penned: "If you have been vaguely awake for the past 30 years, you’ll have heard all sorts of serious people saying the world’s climate is changing.

"They’ve told us endlessly the Arctic ice cap is melting, islands in the South Pacific are drowning and the rainy season in South East Asia is no longer reliable."
"It all seemed so far away and unimportant."
He continued: "To make matters worse, some of the serious people were seriously annoying.
"Whenever Greta Thunberg popped up on television, I was overcome with the urgent need to buy another patio heater."
