The BBC says:

Prince Charles says climate change should be seen as the "greatest challenge to face man" and treated as a much bigger priority in the UK.

The prince unveiled his vision for the future of the environment, farming and food in an exclusive BBC interview.

He said climate change "is what really worries me", and said he did not want his future grandchildren to ask why he had not acted over the issue.

Unfortunately Prince Charles is a big part of the problem, he is not part of the solution. He consumes far, far more than the average UK citizen and so produces far, far more pollution and greenhouse gas emissions than the average UK citizen. (In common with all rich people.) So Prince Charles might be worried about climate change but he evidently fails to see the connection with his own circumstance.
