Guillermo stated that it is important to have the best minds and ideas in the world so that we can repair the planet, not just find the next place to call home.
London Prince William, the United Kingdom’s Prince of Wales, criticized the wealthy for funding space racing and space tourism. He called on the most powerful people to fix the earth first.
Guillermo stated today that William Shatner, the actor of Star Trek, became the oldest person to have flown into space aboard a rocket constructed by Jeff Bezos. Yes.
William, the second inline to the British throne said, “We need to focus on repairing our planet rather than trying to find a new place to live.”
On Wednesday, the 90-year-old Shatner, known for playing Captain James T. Kirk in the 1960s TV series, flew briefly into space with Bezos’ space travel company Blue Origin. Elon Musk, Richard Branson and other billionaires are investing resources in their space ambitions.
William, the Duke of Cambridge was speaking about climate change at the first Earthshot Environmental Awards in Sunday’s proceedings and the forthcoming United Nations Climate Summit in Glasgow.
At a star-studded ceremony at Alexandra Palace in London, five sustainable development projects will each receive £1 million ($1.35 million). William will be attending with Kate, Duchess, of Cambridge. The moon landing challenge that President John F. Kennedy set for the United States in 1961 inspired this award. The challenge was to send humans on the moon before 1961 ended. This challenge was met 8 years later.
A committee consisting of senior broadcaster David Attenborough and actress Cate Blanchett, as well as Ngozi Okonjo Ivira, director at the World Trade Organization, will select the winners.
Gilmour’s father, Prince Charles, and grandfather, Prince Felipe, were very interested in environmental issues. This has allowed him to express his concerns about the world that his children will inherit.
He stated that his eldest son Prince George “knows very clearly” how resources affect the planet, and would ask the same question 30 year later. It would be “absolute disaster.”
Guillermo stated, “As young adults are growing up their future has basically been endangered.” It’s extremely disturbing and, you know what, painful.
He responded to the remarks of his father and urged world leaders at the United Nations Climate Summit in Glasgow (COP26) to put his words into action.
Guillermo stated that he believed the COP should communicate clearly and truthfully what the problem and the solution are.
The summit will be held between October 31 and November 12. Many environmentalists say this is the world’s last chance to reverse the situation in the fight against climate change.
