Prince Charles met Greta Thunberg – ‘global warming is the greatest ever threat’

Prince Charles has said climate change, global warming and loss of diversity are the “greatest threats humanity has ever faced” – as he met activist Greta Thunberg for the first time.

He was speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The prince said:

“Now it is time to take it to the next level. In order to secure our future and to prosper we need to evolve our economic model.”

“Do we want to go down in history as the people who did nothing to bring the world back from the brink, in trying to restore the balance, when we could have done? I don’t want to.”

“Just think for a moment, what good is all the extra wealth in the world gained from business as usual if you can do nothing with it except watch it burn in catastrophic conditions.”

“This is why I need your help, your ingenuity and your practical skills to ensure that the private sector leads the world out of the approaching catastrophe into which we have engineered ourselves.”

The annual meeting of business leaders, politicians and other figures is taking place in the Swiss mountain town until Friday.

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump spoke at the summit and called those urging more action on climate change “perennial prophets of doom” and the “heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortune tellers”.

Thunberg was among those watching Mr Trump, having earlier warned that planting trees is “nowhere near enough” – that followed Mr Trump’s pledge to join a “one trillion trees” initiative.
