Prince Charles: We are not doing enough to combat climate change

Oct 01 2008

Prince Charles has spoken out about climate change prevention methods, saying we simply are not doing enough to combat it.

The prince highlighted in particular the plight of the rainforests, the industrialisation and burning of which is generating emissions on a par with electricity and heat production, he claimed.

Commenting on this issue, the Prince said that rainforests should be viewed as an environment-cleaning utility, which help feed the air with moisture, clear it of pollutants and regulate the climate.

"We are simply not reacting quickly enough and we cannot be anything less than courageous and revolutionary in our approach to tackling climate change," he urged.

Prince Charles heads up his own Rainforest Project, which campaigns for their preservation and best interests and is supported by 12 large companies.

In May, the Prince said that a £15 billion yearly programme must be implemented in order to tackle deforestation or "drought and starvation on a grand scale" would become imminent.
