by Colin Fernandez: warns Prince Charles on the 50th anniversary of landmark speech he gave on plastic pollution and other threats to the environment…


The Prince of Wales has issued a stark warning that humans have just ten years left to save the planet.

‘We really do have to pull our fingers out now because the theory is we have got this decade left,’ he declared.

Prince Charles was marking the 50th anniversary of a landmark speech he made on the environment by calling for nature to be put back at the centre of modern life.

In 1970, he had warned about the problems of plastic waste, chemicals being discharged into rivers and air pollution caused by factories, cars and planes. This was regarded as ‘completely potty’, said the Prince.
