To further my statement earlier that The Prince of Wales isn't the only world figure speaking out on climate change issues and how it affects the globe, Pope Francis has also spoken up on this issue in his ongoing visit to Africa.

"Francis has made ecological concerns a hallmark of his nearly 3-year-old papacy. But on Thursday, he took particular aim at those who deny the science behind climate change."

Pope says fossil fuels must be curbed in talks - AOL

Mods: if its felt this report belongs in the Pope's thread, please move it.

As climate changes, when there is a stress on the resources of an ecosystem, the local inhabitants will face increased burdens. Increased heat, decreasing precipitation, flood, melting of arctic environments all pose threats to humans and our fellow inhabitants of the globe.
That's the message socio-ecologists have been sending for a while now.

Make California dryer, make the Yukon warmer, blanket large Chinese cities in smog, throw a super storm at the Arabian peninsula - all serve to stress the local population. And stressed populations are uneasy populations.
That's the simple message here.

The Prince of Wales has joked that he is unable to recommend eating delicacies such as heron, swan or peacock as he received an award for supporting culinary heritage. Charles accepted the Prix Francois Rabelais, named after the 16th century French writer, at the Institut de France in Paris for his work on commitment to organic agriculture and environmental protection, while visiting the French capital for the UN climate talks-

The Prince of Wales today warned the world must help farmers protect soil or face a climate change catastrophe.

He told a meeting in London, attended by Government ministers, that the world must act now for the health of the planet and its people.

In a keynote speech Prince Charles said: "In my experience, the fertility and health of the soil is at the heart of everything.

"If I may say so, my great hope is that today's meeting will lead to further decisive action, funding and research to support the cause of poverty reduction, sustainable landscapes, landscape restoration and more agro-ecological and resilient approaches to land use around the world.”
