Prince Charles calls for swift action on climate change

Prince Charles calls for 'swift' action on climate change

The Prince of Wales has warned the climate crisis will "dwarf" the impact of coronavirus. Click here to read the full story.

In a recorded message, to be played at the virtual opening of Climate Week on Monday, Prince Charles said "swift and immediate action" was needed.

The prince said Covid-19 provided a "window of opportunity" to reset the economy for a more "sustainable and inclusive future".

He added that the pandemic was "a wake-up call we cannot ignore".

In his message, recorded from Birkhall in the grounds of Balmoral, Prince Charles said: "Without swift and immediate action, at an unprecedented pace and scale, we will miss the window of opportunity to 'reset' for... a more sustainable and inclusive future."

"[The environmental] crisis has been with us for far too many years - decried, denigrated and denied," he said.

"It is now rapidly becoming a comprehensive catastrophe that will dwarf the impact of the coronavirus pandemic."

His comments come as a new poll suggests there is growing concern among citizens all over the world about climate change, although there are big differences about the level of urgency required to tackle the issue.
