He also said he understands why environmental groups such as Extinction Rebellion (XR) are protesting and blocking roads, actions that the British government has repeatedly condemned.

Charles fears that world leaders gathered at COP26, which begins October 31 in Glasgow, will “just talk” rather than take steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Since the signing of the Paris climate accords in 2015, the transition to cleaner economies has progressed very slowly toward limiting global warming to +2°C, and much less to +1.5°C, compared to the late 19th century.
Charles warned that the impact would be “disastrous” if ambitious measures were not taken, noting that he himself had stopped eating meat and fish two days a week.
