Prince Charles to ‘work hard’ to help fight climate change
Charles will work hard to “make the world a better place” and to “help save the planet” by helping develop clean technologies, the Prince of Wales said in an interview with the BBC.
“It is absolutely the right thing to do.
And it is a way of life,” the royal said in a conversation with the broadcaster.
And the right way is to take action now. “
But we will always work hard and be ambitious.
The prince, who is married to the Duchess of Cornwall, said he was “very conscious” of the fact that climate change was a “big challenge” for society, and he hoped to have a role in shaping the future of the planet. “
We want to do something in our lifetime and I know that if you do, it will be a long time before you can say, ‘That was my contribution.'”
The prince, who is married to the Duchess of Cornwall, said he was “very conscious” of the fact that climate change was a “big challenge” for society, and he hoped to have a role in shaping the future of the planet.
“The future is here and it is the future we want,” he said.
“There is so much potential.
And we need to work hard.”
The prince said he had already been approached by companies interested in developing clean energy, and hoped to start conversations with other countries about the issue.
The royal has faced criticism from climate campaigners who have accused him of failing to lead the world in the fight against climate change.
The Royal Society of Great Britain has also criticised him for failing to act on global warming, and in a statement this month said that the prince was “a man of his word”.
“We have repeatedly made clear to the royal household that we would never, under any circumstances, sign up to the global warming policies of our government and would never accept the Prince’s assurances that he would act on climate change,” the society said.
Charles also said that he hoped “people would become aware of the problems that are going on in the world”, and said that, if elected, he would make it a priority to “create a world that is more resilient to climate change”.
“I will be very conscious of the role that the Royal Family plays in making sure that this happens,” he added.
“And I am looking forward to working with other people in government who are in a similar position.”
The royal family’s support for clean energy will also be put under scrutiny this year as new regulations are expected to be introduced in the UK, including a ban on carbon dioxide emissions.
“If we continue to have this kind of policy and to continue to pollute our air and our water, it is not only the UK but all over the world that will be at risk,” the prince said.
He added that he “very much wants” the government to change the regulations.
“That’s a very big challenge, and it’s a big problem,” the Duke of Edinburgh added.
