Prince Charles criticises climate change denial

Help

The Prince of Wales has warned that ignoring environmental concerns will damage the ability of countries to maintain economic growth.

Speaking to an audience of MEPs and other policymakers in Brussels, he said, "a 'business as usual' approach... offers only short term relief and not a long term cure".

He hit out at climate change sceptics, asking how they could ignore "all the clear warning signs by passing them off as merely part of a cyclical process".
