I love that people are starting to pay attention to him now.

I have never been a 'royals' follower but when Charles started promoting sustainable farming/businesses, communities and the like, back in the 80s everyone just laughed at him. You could say he was green before green was cool.

It is my understanding that the employees that work for those businesses such as highgrove earn a living wage - which in my opinion - is an important part of the whole sustainable movement. For more info check out this link:

Yes! We too have loved the Prince's green ways for awhile, so glad he is finally getting some recognition for it.

I love how summarizes the problem with pure "conservation" of nature: "[...] recognize that oasis of conservation amidst the deserts of industrialised intensification are inherently unsustainable long term." You cannot extract parts of an ecosystem and hope it will survive without the rest of the ecosystemic supports.

Paul, when are you interviewing him for your podcast?

As allegedly reported through the Deutsche Press Agentur (DPA), August, 1988.

His father, Prince Philip, said: "In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation. "

so... maybe this guy, charles, is an improvement?

watched the video... remix it so he says 'Paul Wheaton' lol

Pete, did you remix it? That would be funny, but I like him talking about Allan Savory.
