The BBC’s climate editor Justin Rowlatt has asked Prince Charles about Australia’s reluctance to take serious action on climate change. ‘Scott Morrison, the Australian PM, isn’t even certain he can make it to the meeting in Glasgow’, Rowlatt said during The Big Interviews program on the BBC. Prince Charles shook his head, asking, ‘is that what he said?’ Prince Charles went on to say that the upcoming Cop26 talks in Glasgow were the ‘last chance saloon’ for global action on climate change. Rowlatt singled out Australia twice during the interview, asking Prince Charles what advice he would give a country like Australia that ‘seems reluctant to take … really serious action’ on climate change. Prince Charles responded, ‘you gently try to suggest there may be other ways of doing things’.
