Here's a link to a BBC article talking about an interview he did for them:

"The halting of logging in the world's rainforests is the single greatest solution to climate change, Prince Charles has said.

He called for a mechanism to be devised to pay poor countries to prevent them felling their rainforests.
The prince told the BBC that the forests provided the earth's "air conditioning system". He said it was "crazy" the rainforests were worth more "dead than alive" to some of the world's poorest people."

Full article here, along with the audio version of the interview:

That's what I really like about Charles; if he thinks it urgent - he tells it, regardless how popular the view is.
And on this point, I couldn't agree more. If his calculations are right, and I have no reasons to believe otherwise, then the matter does have "wartime urgency".

Thumbs up

This IMO, is a great way to bring awareness to young children. They after all, have got to try to live with the terrible damage we have done to the environment.

The Prince of Wales is not known for his love of technology - he refers to the radio as the wireless - but he will break new ground today when he becomes the first senior member of the Royal Family to utilise a social networking site in their official duties.

Prince Charles goes on MySpace for the first time - Telegraph

Princes and frogs are usually something of fairy tales, but there is nothing fictional or magical about the Royal family's latest campaign which features both figures.

Charles, and sons William and Harry, appear alongside an animated frog in a star-studded YouTube film for the Prince of Wales's latest environmental crusade

He has a website on the topic which is well worth a look.
