I agree. The more high-profile people out there get the word out and start talking seriously about environmental issues and what we can do to help the planet, the better. People are more apt to listen to celebrities or well-known people who know what they're talking about. It's good to see Charles enthused and knowledgeable about this. I wonder if as King, he will do anything (if there's anything he can do) in terms of suggesting legislation or proposals about the environment. I'm not even sure what power he would have in regards to that, so maybe someone with more knowledge about the monarchy and their roles in the legal system can help me out.

HRH hosts the first May Day summit on climate change

The Prince of Wales hosted a May Day Summit on climate change at St James’s Palace today and called for immediate action to solve what he called the world’s environmental “emergency”.
More than 1,000 business leaders from across the country were brought together for the May Day Summit which consisted of nine simultaneous regional events and one national ‘hub’ event, hosted by The Prince at St James’s Palace State Apartments.
The summit, which came from an idea of The Prince's, aimed to encourage the businesses to work together to create and commit to a powerful agenda to tackle climate change.


A speech by HRH The Prince of Wales at the May Day Buisness Summit on Climate Change, St. James's Palace, London - great speech, as usual

Good morning ladies and gentlemen, and welcome all of you to this May Day Business Summit on Climate Change. When I was serving in the Royal Navy – rather a long time ago now I have to admit – “May Day, May Day, May Day” was the distress call used in cases of emergency. It still is – and this is an emergency we face. I fear this event – which I am told is unique – is rather my fault – my own meddling fault! – owing to the fact I asked a marketing expert how the message about climate change could be spread more widely amongst the business community using the experience of communication experts.
Not knowing what the reaction would be, I cannot begin to tell you how pleased I am that so many of you – more than a thousand! – have taken time out of your busy lives to take part. You are all business leaders of real influence drawn from every sector and, with your help today, I am sure that we are going to make a real difference to combatting climate change in this country.

Green prince leaves a giant CO2


THE Prince of Wales has been found wanting in his efforts to save the world from global warming. Charles and his royal household have generated more than 1,500 tons of carbon dioxide in the past year, according to an independent audit

Green prince leaves a giant CO2 - Times Online

There seem to be more than a few 'assuming' statements in the Times audit, how you can do an audit without the actual facts, is beyond me!

I agree Skydragon, before criticizing the Prince again because of his carbon footprint they should wait till Tuesday when Charles will publish details himself.
And the critics should also consider that the Prince doesn´t travell most of the time to make hoildays but because he has a job where it´s necessary to travell around the country and to go abroad.
And to make him responsible for the flights of his adult sons, is more than i can bear...

So our Charles really is the green prince. I am pleased with all the environmental work he is doing. When I see so many claims to be green by different governments and corporations, but they are only empty words and ways to find publicity. Its nice to see Charles is really going all out to set a good example.

Good for you Charles.

Prince Charles Becomes Carbon Neutral
LONDON - Tuesday June 26, 2007 11:59 am


Fewer chartered planes, more train trips and a royal Jaguar that runs on cooking oil have helped Prince Charles achieve a carbon-neutral household, an annual review of the prince's accounts said Tuesday. The annual review by the prince's Clarence House office said Charles cut his annual carbon emissions by 9 percent, to 3,775 tons, between April 1, 2006 and March 31 of this year. The prince offset those emissions by investing in an agency that promotes tree planting and sustainable energy projects.

CHARLES RUNS ON COOKING

Sunday August 12,2007

ECO-friendly Prince Charles has mothballed two of his favourite cars because they are gas guzzlers.

And the “green” Prince has had two of his official cars – a Jaguar and a Range Rover – converted so they can run on used cooking oil.

Charles has ruled that his treasured Aston Martin and his Bentley must stay in the garage and only be used as a last resort in a bid to save the planet.

Charles is really earning his Green Prince title! Not the Aston Martin!

I am surprised the Aston Martin is a gas guzzler. I've never had an issue about him having his classic James Bond car. He has loved that car ever since his mother bought it for him. It is a gorgeous car and it's not such a bad gas guzzler when you consider all the people who drive around in their Hummers!

Asked about his habits in the garden, Prince Charles replied: "I just come and talk to the plants, really - very important to talk to them, they respond."

So Charles was right - you should talk to plants, scientists discover | the Daily Mail

I think the majority of gardeners will be pleased to know that they were right after all!
