Prince Charles campaign to save the rainforests backed by the US Senate

Date : 19th November 2009, Source : The Telegraph (UK)



The crusade by the Prince of Wales to save the world’s rainforests has been bolstered by a £165 million cash pledge from the US senate. The money is the most serious financial commitment by a major western country to the Prince’s appeal to raise money to persuade rainforest nations to stop cutting down trees. The donation was announced at a summit at Clarence House which was attended by Ed Miliband the Energy and Climate Change Secretary. Mr Miliband and the British government will now be under huge pressure to make a similar financial commitment.
