London, England (CNS) - Britain's Prince Charles is opening a MySpace account. The 60-year-old royal has turned to the social networking site to warn young people about the dangers of deforestation and climate change.
His page is expected to explain why it is vital to preserve rain forests and how cutting down trees emits more carbon in a year than all the cars, planes, boats and trucks in the world.
Speaking about his decision to take his eco-crusade online, Charles said: "One of the internet's strengths is that it can enable diverse communities to come together to ensure that everybody's views and actions can really be made to count."
"It provides the potential to create global determination for change on a vitally important issue."
A Clarence House spokesman added: "The Prince knows all about the popularity of social networking sites on the internet through his sons and their friends, and he sees an opportunity here to spread the message of the importance of tackling deforestation through the huge communities that exist online."
Visitors to Charles' page Tuesday can also see the world premiere of a 90-second public awareness film made by his Rainforests Project.
The short will also be screened at the National Geographic store on London's Regent Street tonight.
WOW, I am impressed. Now about that plane ...
Let’s FReep it!
Dear Lord, please pass over this dunce when the time comes!
Maybe he’ll fly to Myspace headquarters for every update.
(He's also a bumbling, imbecilic twit.)
According to my kids, MySpace is so, well, yesterday...

I read somewhere recently that the Prince claims to be ‘carbon neutral’.
