The Prince of Wales has warned global leaders they have 18 critical months to solve climate change and restore the balance of nature, ensuring the survival of the human race.

The Prince, addressing foreign ministers from around the Commonwealth, said they were "uniquely positioned" to lead the world by example, urging them to match ambition with “the practical action that is required”.

Speaking as the future head of the Commonwealth, a position which was confirmed during a convention in London last year, he emphasised that the next 18 months would see "critical meetings that will collectively determine the global agenda for the coming decade".

The leaders of Commonwealth countries will gather next year in Rwanda for a week-long summit, at which they will discuss the "unparalleled challenges caused by rapid climate change and biodiversity loss".

In 2006, Al Gore said that' we only have 10 years left to save the planet from turning into a total frying pan'. Charles should stick to doing what he is good at like.......um.....think.

I expect he'll have a very nice profile on bank notes and coins. The Aussies should also get him to spell check their bank notes as I understand he's notoriously finicky.

A typical misleading headline. What he actually said was
Speaking as the future head of the Commonwealth, a position which was confirmed during a convention in London last year, he emphasised that the next 18 months would see "critical meetings that will collectively determine the global agenda for the coming decade".
In other words,more like 10 years. But obviously you need to work on the changes to make BEFORE the end of that period.
Oh, the human race will not become extinct, but parts of our planet could become uninhabitable by unprotected humans before the end of the century. And one to 3 billion people could become climate refugees. Where will they go, or rather be allowed to go?

Are they not taking this clean air craze to new depths of desperation .
I remember the pea soupers When i was growing up in West London .
Every house had at least one coal fire . You couldnt see mare than a few yars , everything came to a standstill .
Thats pollution , Not a bit of tyre dust .
