William says Billionaires should focus on fixing the earth’s problems (Picture: BBC/Getty)
Prince William has criticised billionaires who keep sending rockets into space, saying the world’s greatest minds need to focus on trying to fix the planet instead.
The Duke of Cambridge’s comments were made in an interview with the BBC to be aired tonight — the day after Star Trek actor William Shatner made history by becoming the oldest person to go into space.
The actor, 90, known for his role as Capt James T Kirk, lifted off from the Texas desert in a rocket that was built by Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’s space travel company Blue Origin.
William, who was interviewed about climate change ahead of his inaugural Earthshot Prize awards, said: ‘We need some of the world’s greatest brains and minds fixed on trying to repair this planet, not trying to find the next place to go and live.’
He also warned world leaders, due to attend the Cop26 climate summit in Glasgow at the end of the month, against ‘clever speak, clever words but not enough action’.
And he raised increasing climate anxiety among young people, saying it would be an ‘absolute disaster’ if his eldest son, Prince George, was having to talk about the same issue in 30 years when it was too late.
‘I want the things that I’ve enjoyed — the outdoor life, nature, the environment — I want that to be there for my children, and not just my children but everyone else’s children,’ he said. ‘If we’re not careful, we’re robbing from our children’s future through what we do now. And I think that’s not fair.’
Shatner described his space flight as ‘the most profound experience I can imagine’ and said: ‘What I would love to do is to communicate as much as possible the jeopardy.
