Prince Charles: I Don't Want My Grandchild to Ask Me Why I Didn't Do More on Climate Change

Celsias

Sometimes ( well, actually quite often )we wonder about the relevance of the Royal Family. But just occasionally one of them says something useful and sensible.On the environment that's usually Prince Charles 

prince charles The Prince, who speaks a lot of sense on environmental issues has told  ITV's "This Morning" programme  that he did not want his future grandchild due to be born this summer, to ask him why he had not done more to tackle issues like climate change.

n an interview filmed before Christmas at Clarence House,which has just been broadcast  he said: "I've gone on for years about the importance of thinking about the long-term in relation to the environmental damage, climate change and everything else."

"We don't, in a sensible world, want to hand on an increasingly dysfunctional world to our grandchildren, to leave them with the real problem".

"I don't want to be confronted by my future grandchild and (have) them say: 'Why didn't you do something?' So clearly now that we will have a grandchild, it makes it even more obvious to try and make sure we leave them something that isn't a total poisoned chalice."
