Prince William has joined forces with former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to warn against ‘environmental devastation’ and urge ‘decisive action’ to tackle climate change. The Duke of Cambridge, 39, has co-authored a piece with the billionaire US politician, 79, for USA Today. In the piece, he compared the current fight against climate change to the 1960s Space Race, writing: ‘This time the question isn’t whether we can reach the moon. It’s whether we can save the Earth’. ‘An hour of change and challenge is upon us again, but this time the question isn’t whether we can reach the moon. It’s whether we can save the Earth.’ He also quotes John F. Kennedy saying ‘we are behind but ready to catch up’ adding it’s ‘our turn’ to mimic the late President’s generation and ‘move ahead’. The royal has also explained how the race to put a man on the moon ‘created new jobs, launched new companies and spurred technological innovations’ and that the race to beat climate change will ‘be no different’ and ‘improve lives all over the planet’. He writes: ‘The environmental devastation we are witnessing – including record-breaking temperatures across the world; wildfires in the American West, Turkey and Greece; historic flooding in Western Europe, the East Coast of the United States and Central China; and the drought-driven famines in East Africa – is larger than what was feared possible even a year ago. ‘For so many, simply breathing air and drinking water is now a health hazard. Many others have seen their food supplies grow scarce and their livelihoods threatened by disruptions to the climate, including in the ocean.”
Gevolgd door 18:00 Bezoek van Prins Charles aan Royal Kew Gardens Green-fingered Charles! Prince visits Kew Gardens with President Ali Bongo Ondimba of Gabon to meet with CEOs from his sustainable markets initiative. Prince of Wales visited Kew Gardens with Gabon President Ali Bongo Ondimba. The heir to the throne, 72, met with CEOs from his sustainable markets initiative. He toured the Herbarium at Royal Botanic Gardens with Kew’s chair of trusteesBy Claire Toureille For Mailonline Published: 15:35 BST, 28 September 2021 | Updated: 15:36 BST, 28 September 2021. Prince Charles visited Kew Gardens today where he met with the president of Gabon during a visit themed around sustainable businesses and biodiversity. The heir to the throne, 72, looked in great spirits during the visit of the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens and the Jordell Laboratory in west London. The Prince of Wales witnessed first hand the Royal Botanic Gardens’s efforts to promote biodiversity around the world and particularly in relations to effort. He was joined by Gabon’s president Ali Bongo Ondimba, with whom he met CEOs who have taken part in his Sustainable Markets Initiative. The programme was introduced by Prince Charles at The World Economic Forum 2020 Annual Meeting in Davos, and involves a 10-point action plan to kickstart sustainable business ideas across the 2020. Prince Charles looked in great spirit during the visit, where he was greeted by Royal Botanic Gardens Kew’s Chair of Trustees Amelia Fawcett. Dressed in a smart pinstriped navy suit, with a crisp white shirt and a light blue scarf, he greeted President Bongo Ondimba, who was wearing a similar navy suit with a pink and blue tie. The pair first toured the Herbarium, respectfully followed by the SMI CEOs who took part in the visit. Charles, led by Amelia Fawcett and an unnamed member of staff, wearing a stylish navy velvet jacket over a floral dress, was shown around the gardens’ grounds, where he learned about the biodiversity efforts Kew is pursuing around the world. The Prince of Wales chatted to Kew staff members with his usual warmth during the visit. Surprised visitors casually waved at the future sovereign during the tour, to which he responded with good humour. The group then moved inside to the Jodrell Laboratory, where a specialist went into more details about the sustainability efforts undertaken at Kew, especially in relations to business. The presentation seemed to focus on bunches of lavenders, which were propped in tube in front of the visitors. A handful of CEOs selected from the larger group were allowed to visit the lab with Charles. Charles’s Sustainable Markets Council aims to champion sustainable markets around the world with help from companies, financial institutions and governments. His initiative hopes to ‘find ways to rapidly decarbonise the global economy and make the transition to sustainable markets’, Clarence House said today. A spokesman for Charles added at the time the scheme was launched that it also ‘brings together leading international figures from the private, public and philanthropic sectors’. Charles is the Royal Family’s most noted and passionate green campaigner and recently told how he believes climate change reaches a ‘tipping point’. Speaking in November 2019 during his tour of New Zealand, Charles said he feared for his grandchildren’s future as the world faces ‘an urgent global crisis’. He added that humans have been on a ‘dizzying spending spree for centuries’ with the planet’s resources and we are facing a ‘climate and biodiversity emergency’. Charles has been outspoken about climate change for years – and last year it was revealed he attempted to convince US President Donald Trump of its seriousness. Speaking at Clarence House in July 2019, Charles warned that the following 18 months were critical for humanity to survive the impact of climate change. The Prince said the future of our species – as well as the world’s wildlife – could be decided in a series of crucial United Nations meetings between world leaders.
