The Prince of Wales said yesterday he found the views of climate-change sceptics "extraordinary". He warned that life would be "no fun at all" for future generations unless people took action to fight climate change.

Charles, who has spent the week touring eco-projects across the country, emphasised how some local people were taking up the challenge of adopting more sustainable lives.

Asked in a pre-recorded interview for ITV's breakfast show Daybreak, what he thought of climate-change doubters, the Prince said: "I find it quite extraordinary, because it seems only sensible to take a precautionary approach.

"There is something going very wrong. It may be convenient to believe that somehow all these greenhouse gases we're pouring into the atmosphere just disappear through holes conveniently into space. It doesn't work like that."
