Melbourne, Apr 22 (ANI): Prince Charles is set to pen a book on climate that will focus on the threat big business poses to the environment.

Publisher HarperCollins said that the Prince’s book would talk about how humans have become dangerously disconnected from nature through their unstoppable pursuit of economic growth and technological progress.

He will also be making a documentary due for release next year.

The project is named ‘Harmony and Charles’.

In a statement released by the Rupert Murdoch-owned publishing house, Prince Charles said people had “a sacred duty of stewardship of the natural order of things”.

“In some of our actions we now behave as if we were masters of nature and, in others, as mere bystanders,” quoted him as saying.

“If we could rediscover that sense of harmony; that sense of being a part of, rather than apart from nature, we would perhaps be less likely to see the world as some sort of gigantic production system, capable of ever-increasing outputs for our benefit - at no cost,” he added. (ANI)
