“Humanity Can Take On Climate Change,” Says Prince Williams

Lately, it has been hard keeping up with the British royal family. After the ground-breaking interview of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle with Oprah Winfrey, the royals have been under quite the limelight – and yes, it’s worse now.

From allegations of racist remarks regarding the first-born of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the rumors of financial dependence, the royal family has dealt with it all. People were quick to take sides after the news broke out and the story unfolded; many blamed Markle for the split, and many blamed the monarchy itself. Despite the issues, Prince Williams seems to be focusing on something important: climate change.

Prince William spoke about a global movement to fight against the ongoing crisis of climate change. The Duke of Cambridge sent out a message through a recorded special video on climate change. It was broadcasted at the Conservation International Gala.

In the video, he mentioned the dangerous effects of climate change and promoted the idea of a global team effort. He also mentioned that he believes that human beings have a strong ability to set goals and then reach out to fulfill those goals. He went on to give the example of the creation of the COVID-19 vaccine in a record time to prove his point.

Global Warming To Be Worse

Prince William continued the discussion and reminded the audience that the next decade would force humanity into fighting against climate change and its devastating impacts. He also shed light on the impact of climate change on different regions, stating that some regions will face harsher weather, mostly the vulnerable and developing states.

Unity Above All

He stated that it is time that the world unites and begins a global team effort in order to control climate change. The Prince made sure to mention every business, community, and every government to come together to make a change and save the environment.

He spoke about everyone giving up their differences; whether they are political or a belief system, it is time to change. The Royal demonstrated optimism in his speech as he said that he was confident that unity and working together could save the planet and reverse climate change not only for ourselves but for our future generations.
