Prince Charles spoke out regarding the conservation of forests at the Paris Summit.

Britain’s Prince Charles was one of the dignitaries at the Paris Summit today. He reiterated the need to protect the forests of the world. The culprits in this equation were the big corporations that were acting in a vicious and voracious manner.

Several delegates and envoys joined in the chorus of voices. Prince Charles, who is getting on in years, also met up with many regional leaders from South America. They all discussed ways to reduce the rape of forests in Brazil and Russia all the way to the African Continent. 

Charles is a strong proponent of mysticism in which he is deeply interested. He called for a back to basics approach which will lead to accelerated change as far as reforestation is concerned. The time is now, said Charles.

The prince has long been an advocate of deep ecology. It is his conviction that the large companies and firms of the world don’t pay any heed to any conservation efforts. And the source agencies that provide them with their resources also don’t give two hoots about such talk regarding the world’s natural beauty. To them it is nothing but a load of obscurantist spiel.  

Prince Charles said that the logic of the market was becoming more and more materialistic as the days went by. The only object in a throwaway society was consumerism. It as as if the public had been made numb to the consequences of its decisions.

Almost 30 million acres of forest land is destroyed each and every year which is a shame. The process leads to a whopping 12% of the total global carbon emissions. This is the greatest source of environmental pollution. It is not helping in any way to curb the dirty air, filthy water and tons of garbage in certain landfills.  

Forests play a crucial role in absorbing carbon emissions. The forests were like the lungs of the earth. Yet here we were chopping tree after tree. We ought to keep in mind that when the rain forest goes, so do we as a viable species along with it.

Humanity will be flooded out of the habitat of the earth when the environment reaches a certain point of no return. Nobody wants that to happen. A billion people are dependent upon the forests.

All the leaders gathered at the summit promised that they would do more to not only protect the forests but enhance the environmental condition of the planet as well. This happens to be the second day of the summit in Paris. And over 149 world leaders have met to chalk out a course of action to stop global warming in its tracks.
