In the interview, the Prince of Wales 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.
Prince Charles has long been an advocate for environmental causes. His Duchy Hills Farm went organic in 1986. He converted his Aston Martin to run on biofuel made from wine while his other cars run on vegetable oil.
