Prince Albert has told the American press that the views of presidential candidate Donald Trump on the topic of climate change are “dangerous.”
The Sovereign reportedly said: “I was pretty shocked when I heard climate change denial. It’s dangerous to have someone like this running for office, someone who can have people believing it’s all a conspiracy.”
As previously reported by Monaco Life, Prince Albert last week met UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon (pictured above) and presented him in person with the documents ratifying the Paris agreements made at last year’s COP21.
There were also discussions about the upcoming COP22, which will be held November 7-18 in Marrakesh, where the Foundation Prince Albert II of Monaco is reportedly hosting a “select dinner”.
In addition to his visit to the UN, Prince Albert attended the annual Princess Grace Foundation (US) dinner and awards, together with Princess Charlene. He also made a quick visit to the childhood home of his mother, Princess Grace, in Philadelphia’s East Falls district. The Princely family has recently acquired the building.
