‘I can’t do it by myself!’ When asked about his carbon footprint, Prince Charles retaliates.
PRINCE CHARLES retaliated against a BBC reporter who questioned him about his massive carbon footprint while discussing his vision for Britain’s future.
The Queen, the Duchess of Cornwall, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will all be present at Cop26 for a series of ceremonies. Charles also mentioned his personal efforts to lessen his carbon footprint in the BBC interview, which took place in Prince George’s Wood, an arboretum he constructed in the gardens of his house on the Balmoral estate near Aberdeen. When asked what he does about his “hefty carbon footprint” and how heating a palace must “take a lot of gas,” the Prince told BBC Breakfast that he cannot “do it alone.”
“I’ve tried for a long time to make sure that the heating is done in the most sustainable way possible,” Charles added.
“I installed biomass boiler systems and solar panels on some of the farm buildings at Clarence House and Highgrove.”
“On top of that, I’m attempting to cut as much as feasible.” It’s been difficult for me to get electric autos.
“I won’t be able to do it on my own.”
“On two days a week, I don’t eat meat or fish, and on one day a week, I don’t eat dairy products,” he explained.
“If more people did that, you’d relieve a lot of the stress.”
He claimed to have modified his Aston Martin, which he has owned for five decades, to run on “surplus English white wine and whey from the cheese process.”
The Prince of Wales has urged that world leaders attending the Cop26 conference should take bold action on climate change rather than “simply talk” about it, and that they should pay attention to how “despairing” many young people are about it.
Charles said he understands why climate activists like Extinction Rebellion hold protests and block roads, but he believes they should do so in a less destructive manner.
In an interview with the BBC, he stated, “I completely understand the dissatisfaction.”
“However, I don’t believe it is useful to do it in a way that alienates others… The problem is, “How do you channel that frustration in a constructive rather than destructive way?” “The point is, people should really note how despondent so many young people are,” he continued. “Brinkwire Summary News,” by Charles.
