(National Sentinel)Â Royal Hoax: England’s Prince William thinks there are too many people in the world and that will have a “terrible impact” on the planet.
TheÂ Duke of Cambridge noted further that the world’s rising population was also puttingÂ “enormous pressure” on wildlife, and said that something must be done to address the issue, though he did not elaborate.
The prince’s concerns echo those of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, who in 2011 said that couples should voluntarily limit the size of families.
â€œIn my lifetime, we have seen global wildlife populations decline by over half,” the prince said in an address to the Tusk Trust gala this week, of which he is the royal patron.
“We are going to have to work much harder, and think much deeper, if we are to ensure human beings and the other species of animal with which we share this planet can continue,” he added.
“Africaâ€™s rapidly growing human population is predicted to more than double by 2050 â€“ a staggering increase of three and a half million people per month,” he noted.
â€œUrbanisation, infrastructure development, cultivation â€“ all good things in themselves, but they will have a terrible impact unless we begin to plan and to take measures now,â€ William said, according to The Telegraph.
Prince Charles, William’s father, is also a staunch environmentalist.
In July 2009, he warned humanity had only 96 months to save the world from â€œirretrievable climate and ecosystem collapse, and all that goes with it.â€
That date has passed without the ensuing predicted apocalypse.
