Prince Charles on Climate Change
One of Prince Charles’ virtues (he has many in my opinion – for which he gets scant appreciation at home and abroad) is his consistent public commitment to addressing climate change. Within the limits imposed on him by his royal position, he has been a strong voice for action. His latest initiative is a book for popular audiences, entitled simply Climate Change (may still be difficult to find in the US).
The book (co-authored with two climate scientists) is a simple, well-illustrated introduction to the topic. In fact, it looks like a children’s book, but isn’t. (The publishing genealogy of these “Ladybird Expert” books can be found here. The next book in the series is on quantum mechanics!)
I’m not sure what impact this little book will have in the UK, let alone this country, but folks who work on climate change communications issues should definitely give it a look. Maybe Scott Pruitt should read it!
