After devastating wildfires in southern Europe, Prince Charles once again called for more stringent climate protection. “Our world is in crisis, and no matter where you are, no country is untouched by it,” wrote the British heir to the throne in a guest post for “MailOnline” on Saturday. Devastating wildfires in southern Europe, but the flood disasters and droughts of the past few weeks and months may also have shown this in a “heartbreaking” way.
In the wake of COP26, the upcoming UN climate change conference in Glasgow, the 72-year-old wrote that the conference would give the world’s powerful people a chance to change something before it is too late. The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has clearly shown that extreme weather events will increase if the international community does not take immediate and immediate action.
In his “Terra Carta” project, he has now brought together more than 400 major companies who, by signing the Declaration, are working to make sustainability the basis of their economic activities. Prince Charles has been an ardent advocate of climate protection for years. In November, representatives from all states are to meet in Glasgow, Scotland, after last year’s COP26 was postponed due to the pandemic.
