Britain's Prince Charles warned on Thursday that mankind has 100 months or less to save the planet from a climate-caused disaster. Charles told some 150 business leaders in Rio de Janeiro that "the best projections tell us that we have less than 100 months to alter our behavior before we risk catastrophic climate change and the unimaginable horrors that this would bring." "Any difficulties which the world faces today will be nothing compared to the full effects which global warming will have on the worldwide economy," he said. "It will affect the well-being of every man, woman and child on our planet," the prince added, calling for urgent steps to curb deforestation and greenhouse gas emissions.
