Optimism: 2 Categories: Economic/Financial, Sustainable Living

The United Kingdom's Prince Charles continues as a long-time outspoken environmental activistThe price of capitalism and consumerism is just too high, Prince Charles tells industrialists.

By Robert Verkaik

Capitalism and consumerism have brought the world to the brink of economic and environmental collapse, the Prince of Wales has warned in a grandstand speech which set out his concerns for the future of the planet.

The heir to the [British] throne told an audience of industrialists and environmentalists at St James's Palace, London, last night that he had calculated that we have just 96 months left to save the world.

And in a searing indictment on capitalist society, Charles said we can no longer afford consumerism and that the "age of convenience" was over.

Member: Wavehunter (William Coffin) I lived in Britain for many years, where I studied politics and international relations and worked in the charity sector. Now I live in Mexico and juggle my time between bringing up a young son, writing science fiction, teaching English and engaging with the global community on-line. I want to learn more about the enormous changes we all face so we might make a peaceful transition to what is bound to be a very different society.
