Environment and Energy News reports that Prince Charles will lobby Congress next week on climate.
According to the report,
The prince is scheduled to meet with a strong congressional ally in that effort, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.). Shaheen’s office announced today that Charles requested the meeting to discuss issues like energy security and the future of clean energy as a follow-up to discussions the pair had earlier this year.
“I met with him in March to discuss the role of the United States in the climate change debate, and I look forward to another productive discussion next week,” said the senator, who serves on the Energy and Natural Resources Committee and the Foreign Relations Subcommittee on European Affairs.
Shaheen noted that the prince has been a longtime advocate for efforts on clean energy and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
“He has led efforts to bring governments and nongovernmental organizations together with the business community to stress the importance of addressing global climate change,” Shaheen said.
Maybe the Prince can be crowned as King Climate as his mother won’t allow him to accede to his ceremonial birthright.
