Prince Willem-Alexander joins climate debate

Prince Willem-Alexander joined the climate change debate on Thursday, speaking in the Indian capital Delhi where he is on an official visit with his mother queen Beatrix and his wife princess Maxima, ANP news agency reports.

The prince said enormous amounts of money are spent on infrastructure to allow a small number of people to live a luxurious lifestyle.
Prince Willem-Alexander: ‘Is it too much to ask for this minority to make a contribution to the future of our planet and see this as an ‘insurance premium’ against a disaster that…. will have a devastating effect on future generations even in the most conservative predictions of the IPCC [Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change?’
