Say what you want about Prince Charles, but that is one environmentally-aware dude! In the past, Ecorazzi has covered many of Charles’ earth-friendly deeds, including his resistance to genetically modified food and his Aston Martin DB6 converted eco-car. Now, the Prince is reaching out to Japan for concerted efforts to build a low-carbon society to combat global warming.

“We must not abandon the drive towards a low-carbon economy,” the prince of Wales said in a speech marking the 150th anniversary of bilateral relations between Japan and Britain. He continued by calling climate change “the biggest challenge our planet has ever seen.”

While it’s obvious the world is currently going through a financial crisis, Charles thinks that we must stay focused on our commitment to the environment. “While we hope and pray that the underlying strengths of the global economy will enable it to bounce back, the effects of climate change will be far from temporary and will, indeed, be irreversible,” he said.

To achieve the goal, the Prince urged technological innovation, including energy-efficient technologies and conservation efforts, such as forest management.

We totally, one-hundred percent support Charles as he spreads the word about the dangers of global warming. Hopefully, with the election of our new president, America will soon become an even larger force in the environmental revolution our world is slowly embracing!
