Prince Charles speaks out on ‘great push back’ he received – ‘They thought I was dotty!’ | Royal | News (Reports)


Prince Charles has shared his memories of the backlash he received when he spoke out about environmental issues in his younger years. The Prince of Wales has been a great advocate of fighting the effects of climate change as far back as the 1970s when “nobody really wanted to know at the time”. The royal was speaking to author Margaret Atwood about the experience as she interviewed him for her BBC Radio 4 Today show guest-edit.

He told the Today show: “I had to face a great deal of push back, if I may say so.

“Nobody really wanted to know at the time.

“I think they thought I was completely dotty.

“The trouble is that, as human beings, we tend to get carried away by new technologies of convenience. I don’t think the consequences are perhaps thought about.”
