Prince Charles: Help me save the rainforests

Date : 5th June 2008, Source : The Telegraph (UK)



Today is World Environment Day, a day that should remind us that there is just the smallest window left for us to act to stop catastrophic climate change. The frightening reality is that the consequences of global warming are being felt far more rapidly than most scientists predicted even 18 months ago. The polar ice caps are melting faster, the ability of the oceans to absorb carbon dioxide is diminishing and our weather patterns are ever more erratic and more extreme. But we do still have a chance to stop the worst excesses of climate change, so long as we act now. And one of the most effective ways to do this is by halting the destruction of the rainforests, one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions.
