Prince Charles speaks on environment

Jan. 7, 2013 at 3:49 PM

LONDON, Jan. 7 (UPI) -- Prince Charles said on a British television program he feels the weight of responsibility of environmental issues.

"I don't want to be confronted by my future grandchild and [have him or her] say, 'Why didn't you do something? Clearly, now that we will have a grandchild, it makes it more obvious to try and make sure we leave them with something that isn't a total poisoned chalice," he said Monday, a reference to the child expected next summer by Prince William and the duchess of Cambridge.

Charles made his remarks on the ITV television program "This Morning."

An outspoken campaigner on environmental matters, he was interviewed in a segment designed to inspire a new wave of volunteerism in Britain, the newspaper The Daily Telegraph said.
