Appearing on ITV Good Morning Britain, the Prince of Wales called on children to be educated on the effects of climate change to be better equipped in the future to make changes to our planet. Prince Charles asserted that the ‘sixth sense’ of the world’s indigenous peoples should no longer be dismissed as unimportant and urged the British to invest in nature. He said: “As a first step, if we are to restore the critical balance between people and the planet, we must protect, restore and invest in nature.
“And that’s why we should listen and learn from the deep wisdom of their intuitive sixth sense.
“Something we have so rationally dismissed as irrelevant in a modern world. ”

He added: “As we focus on these solutions at the local level, we also need to think about investing at scale.
“We need to explore cross-border efforts to maintain and restore highly diverse natural ecosystems over large areas of land and sea.
“At this time of reset, we have an amazing opportunity to change the way we educate children so that they can better understand humanity’s relationship with nature.
“In doing so, we will inspire a whole generation of humanity who will be equipped to make the changes we desperately need.” ”
But the Prince of Wales was quickly criticized by GMB viewers who took to Twitter to highlight the royal’s inability to come up with a solution.
One onlooker wrote: “As a massive landowner Prince Charles can provide the means for this conservation education, between the Duchy of Cornwall and the monarch’s lands there is a national scope for this education.
“The Prince of Wales has been an environmentalist his whole life now, he must act. ”
And another: “We don’t want any propaganda for our children. Science is not settled… and scientists do not agree. ”
Some called on the royal family to lead by example and stop hunting.
One Twitter user said, “He needs to stop hunting and traveling in private jets and so on. The monarchy preaches but does not practice. ”
And another: “Maybe him and the rest of the royal family, etc.” should stop hunting innocent animals for fun is the best start. ”

Others, however, were pleased with the prince’s intervention.
One of them wrote: “A very wise man is our Prince Charles. He was in conservation before global warming was mentioned. ”
And another: “How much longer have the big polluters of this world – America, China and India been able to ignore the wise words of #PrinceCharles and #SirDavidAttenborough.?
“Wake up and smell the coffee…! ”
Finally, one spectator said: “The more time goes by, the more I respect this guy. “
