'We're living on borrowed time', claims Charles

Prince Charles launched his 'green revolution' with a stark warning that we are all 'living on borrowed time' if we don't stop eating up the world's resources.
In a forthright speech in front of leading figures, including Prime Minister Tony Blair, the Prince said: 'We are consuming the resources of our planet at such a rate that we are, in effect, living off credit and living on borrowed time.

Britain's Prince Charles set to become a greener traveller

Prince Charles is likely to cut down on his use of helicopters and aeroplanes as his household conducts a review to make him a greener traveller.
Clarence House is looking at how the heir to the throne can reduce his air travel within Britain and use more cars and scheduled trains, in the hope that big businesses will follow suit.

I really liked the speech Prince Charles made at launching Accounting for Sustainability. It was very deep and well-thought and reflected many of Prince Charles's concerns. And it was not without humour.

Here is the speech for those, who are interested.

You are welcome, Roslyn.
I think it was really a great speech

Good for him! The more people investigate and use environmentally friendly methods, the cheaper they are likely to become. At present cost sometimes can limit a well-intentioned person to going with the less environmentally friendly option.

Wandering off-topic now, one benefit of these links to international news-papers, is that you get the chance to read other interesting stories you would otherwise not have access to. There's a corker on that page about the Burmese pythons breeding in the Everglades. Very worrying.

I am not quite sure I understand what is meant by this article: is it criticizing Prince Charles for booking all seats in the first and business classes?
He is using not a private jet but a 'regular' flight; surely that does reduce carbon dioxide.
And I guess the First and Business classes should have been booked for security reasons the .

I think part of the criticism is that he is going at all to pick up this environmental award when it could be presented via a communications hookup and not use the carbon emissions of the plane but.... the plane will be going anyway and he will be doing other things so it is good that he is combining duties and picking up the award and using a scheduled flight.

Unfortunately most of the Queen's kids can do very little right according to most of the press.

Is Charles Fighting Climate Change?

The Prince of Wales has cancelled his regular skiing trip to Switzerland in an attempt to help cut down his carbon 'footprint'. The decision has emerged in the wake of criticism levelled at Charles over his plans to fly to the US to receive an award for campaigning on green issues.

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/20012007/14...te-change.html

Miliband enters row over Charles US trip

David Miliband last night became embroiled in the row over Prince Charles's trip to America next week to pick up an award for championing green issues

http://www.theherald.co.uk/politics/...136514.0.0.php

It was reported the prince has booked the entire first and business class sections of a jumbo jet but aides insisted they would book only 20 seats if they did travel scheduled.....
...Receiving the award is part of a two-day visit, which will also highlight urban redevelopment and youth regeneration. They are going to the US at the request of the Foreign Office.

Miliband is the environment minister who attacked one of the greenest air companies, saying they are the biggest poluters and it was time they made changes. He was called an idiot, stupid, ill informed etc. He followed this up by saying that organic foods are a waste of money, the taste and quality is the same as the foods that are covered in pesticides, growth hormones etc, then it was revealed that he eats organic foods, err, because it tastes better.
