    Prince Charles, addressing a small business group in London, called climate change a bigger danger than terrorism. The heir to the British throne urged business to take advantage of technology to become more energy efficient. He was speaking at a meeting of the Confederation of British Industry, The Scotsman reported. The prince quoted John Coomber, a director of an organization that assesses risk who called global warming the number one risk in the world, ahead of terrorism and demographic change. 'I think he has got a point,' Prince Charles said.

    Prince Charles launched his 'green revolution' with a stark warning that we are all 'living on borrowed time' if we don't stop eating up the world's resources. In a forthright speech in front of leading figures, including Prime Minister Tony Blair, the Prince said: 'We are consuming the resources of our planet at such a rate that we are, in effect, living off credit and living on borrowed time. 'It is our children and grandchildren who will have to pay off this debt and we owe it to them and ourselves to do something about it before it is too...

    The Prince of Wales will try to persuade George W Bush and Americans of the merits of Islam this week because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since September 11. The Prince raised his concerns when he met senior Muslims in London in November 2001. The gathering took place just two months after the attacks on New York and Washington. "I find the language and rhetoric coming from America too confrontational," the Prince said, according to one leader at the meeting.

    LONDON - Prince Charles says he believes the pace of climate change is terrifying and people are becoming too dependent on technology. In a rare TV interview ahead of his official tour of the United States next week, Charles expressed concern that economic progress is "upsetting the whole balance of nature." "You know, if you look at the latest figures on climate change and global warming ... they're terrifying, terrifying," Charles told CBS' "60 Minutes" in the interview aired Sunday. The prince is a keen environmentalist, but his office declined to say whether Charles will raise the issue of climate...

Office workers clasping DVDs of the royal wedding in April have been hanging out of high-rise windows trying to catch a glimpse of the Prince’s motorcade as it sweeps triumphantly through city streets.

    Is Prince Charles being groomed to become the Constantine of Islam in England? Prince Charles has arrived to America to for an eight-day tour. His mission is to persuade W. Bush and the Americans of “the merits of Islam”. He has voiced private concerns over America ’s "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths.

    The Prince of Wales was at the White House last week, hoping, the Daily Telegraph reported, "to convince President Bush of the merits of Islam . . . because he thinks the United States has been too intolerant of the religion since Sept. 11, 2001." This is a drum Prince Charles has been beating for years. In 1993, for example, he scolded those in the West who peddled "unthinking prejudices" about Muslim culture -- for example, "that sharia law of the Islamic world is cruel, barbaric, and unjust." Two months after 9/11, he was lambasting the American attitude toward Islam...

You talk about a man who has been out of touch with reality for decades in his own personal life and now is going to lecture the White House on the "religion of peace." He says only a few bad apples are causing the problem, but then why don't the many "good apples" demonstrate like crazy about their violent brothers? Instead, their silence is deafening.

    When it comes to Europe, the Islamists are definitely winning.  Just ask Prince Charles. Prince Charles of Wales and his new bride, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess of Cornwall, have been in the United States, hobnobbing at the White House and imparting royal pearls of wisdom.  According to statements made prior to this visit, Prince Charles thinks the U.S. is “intolerant” towards Islam.  In Prince Charles’ view, it’s all gone downhill since 9/11 because of the Bush administration’s “confrontational” approach to Muslim countries.  In fact, he made these comments during a meeting with Muslim leaders soon after 9/11.

    The Prince of Wales wants Britain to be transformed into an "organic oasis" with no chemicals used on any crops -even at the cost of imposing trade barriers and pulling out of the European Union (EU). He outlined his vision in a meeting with Lord Haskins, the former chairman of Northern Foods, who was appointed by Tony Blair to head a rural review. Prince Charles's comments are understood to have been privately dismissed by Haskins as ill-thought out and impractical.

    Prince Charles wants to be crowned King in a multi-faith coronation service in a dramatic break with tradition, it is claimed. The Prince is said to have decided that the Christian service in Westminster Abbey must be followed by a separate ceremony involving religious leaders from other faiths. Held in the ancient Westminster Hall inside the Palace of Westminster, the service would attempt to give room to Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Sikh beliefs as well as other Christian denominations. Prince Charles believes reforms to the coronation are vital to reflect the changes in British society that have taken place since...

    The Prince of Wales cannot defend all faiths because the differences between them makes such a position untenable, a senior Anglican bishop has said. The Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir-Ali, said all faiths could not be defended because of serious differences between various religions. He said Prince Charles would be obliged to take an oath to defend the Christian church if he succeeded to the throne. Dr Nazir-Ali has also warned against "multi-faith mish-mash" in the UK. He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme the monarchy and the legal system had both emerged from the Judeo-Christian ethic. 'Values come...

While Americans have always been entranced by the gleam of royalty - even if they would not choose it for themselves - America's willingness to hear the Prince's message on environmental issues suggests that he has a voice here in the former colony that is drowned out in the convolution of royal goings-on at home.

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...

    In a 1997 Middle East Quarterly article titled "Prince Charles of Arabia," Ronni L. Gordon and David M. Stillman looked at evidence that Britain's Prince Charles might be a secret convert to Islam. They shifted through his public statements (defending Islamic law, praising the status of Muslim women, seeing in Islam a solution for Britain's ailments) and actions (setting up a panel of twelve "wise men" to advise him on Islamic religion and culture), then concluded that, "should Charles persist in his admiration of Islam and defamation of his own culture," his accession to the throne will indeed usher in...
  • Prince Charles attacks climate change 'sceptics'

    The Prince of Wales launched a stinging attack on "climate sceptics" deriding them for peddling "pseudo science". In a speech to world business leaders at a climate change seminar Charles criticised the group for apparently intimidating people from "adopting the precautionary measures necessary to avert environmental collapse". Some experts dispute global predictions for climate change mainly because changes to the planet's climate have occurred in the past, due to natural causes. Leading figures such as former Conservative chancellor Lord Lawson and environmentalist and broadcaster David Bellamy added their voices to others questioning the conclusions of global warming 'believers'. Charles, speaking...

    On June 9th, Prince Charles delivered a stunning speech to the Center for Islamic Studies at Oxford wherein he called for a western pantheistic religious synthesis with Islam to help save the world from the impending environmental catastrophe looming on the apocalyptic horizon. Shockingly, Prince Charles strongly believes that Islam can play a critical role in bringing back ancient religious traditions that will promote a much needed check on western man’s unbridled enthusiasm for capitalism, power and money where science has been inappropriately exploited by commerce since the Industrial Revolution. Prince Charles presumes that such a course of action will...

    A fawning letter sent by Prince Charles to Colonel Gaddafi has been discovered at one of the despot’s palaces in Libya. Addressing the dictator as ‘Your Excellency’, the heir to the throne called for greater ties between the two nations. It is the latest embarrassing link to emerge between the British Establishment and Gaddafi’s hated regime, and follows revelations his brother Prince Andrew was also used as a go-between.

    London (PTI): Britain's Prince Charles has visited a mosque in north-west London and met Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin, the top spiritual leader of Dawoodi Bohra Muslims. Prince Charles, who met Syedna Burhanuddin and his son Prince Qaidjoher Ezzuddin on Wednesday, praised the Muslim leaders for valuing Islam and its traditions. Dawoodi Bohra Muslims, a sect of the Shia Muslims, numbers around 6,000 in Britain. "It is heart-warming for our community and all Muslims residing in the UK, that the heir to the throne of the country they live in values their religion and traditions," Prince Ezzuddin told the gathering.One of the...

    Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic 'spiritual principles' in order to protect the environment. In an hour-long speech, the heir to the throne argued that man's destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions - but particularly those of Islam. He said the current 'division' between man and nature had been caused not just by industrialisation, but also by our attitude to the environment - which goes against the grain of 'sacred traditions'. Charles, who is a practising Christian and will become the head of the Church of England when he succeeds to...

    Prince Charles yesterday urged the world to follow Islamic 'spiritual principles' in order to save the environment. In a high-profile speech, the heir to the throne argued that man's destruction of the world was contrary to the scriptures of all religions - but particularly that of the Islamic faith. (snip) 'From what I know of the Qu’ran, again and again it describes the natural world as the handiwork of a unitary benevolent power,' he said. 'It very explicitly describes Nature as possessing an “intelligibility” and that there is no separation between Man and Nature, precisely because there is no separation...

    The Prince of Wales has launched a campaign to save the future of fish and chips as he warned of the "dire" consequences of over-fishing. "Global fish stocks are deteriorating and we cannot ignore the fact, merely carrying on as if it is business as usual," the Prince said. In a speech to representatives of the worldwide fishing industry at the World Fisheries Congress in Edinburgh, the Prince reminisced about how he escaped from school at Gordonstoun to buy fish and chips in Inverness. But he said a meal we take for granted will be off the menu in future...

    The Prince of Wales has blamed a lack of belief in the soul for the world’s environmental problems, and said that the planet cannot sustain a population expected to reach 9 billion in 40 years. He said he found it “baffling” that so many scientists professed a faith in God yet this had little bearing on the “damaging” way science was used to exploit the natural world. The Prince pinned part of the blame on Galileo. Criticising the profit imperative behind much scientific research, he said: “This imbalance, where mechanistic thinking is so predominant, goes back at least to Galileo’s...

The Prince, who leaves on Tuesday for an eight-day tour of the US, has voiced private concerns over America's "confrontational" approach to Muslim countries and its failure to appreciate Islam's strengths. The Duchess of Cornwall will accompany her husband The Prince raised his concerns when he met senior Muslims in London in November 2001. The gathering took place just two months after the attacks...
