Less Than “18 Months”

Prince Charles on Deforestation:

(European Parliament, 14 February 2008)

“We have 18 months to halt deforestation of the rain forests to preserve life on this planet.”

“Emissions (from deforestation) are comparable to those generated by the production of electricity and heat.”

“…we are destroying our planet’s air-conditioning system.”

“Amazonia’s forests alone help to store the largest body of flowing freshwater on the planet. They release 20 billion tonnes of it into the atmosphere every day…”
