Myrea Pettit champions environmental and conservation issues, her Last Dodo’s Ball painting has the same warning to the assembled company as voiced by Prince Charles who is now using the power of the internet to “inform and challenge” people’s thinking to tackle the world’s environmental problems.
Like Myrea’s Dodo that has been on the web for some time, Prince Charles described the internet as possibly “the most effective tool in history” as he gave a keynote speech at a Google Zeitgeist conference.
The heir to the throne said that, ultimately, the battle against climate change could only be won by every person on the planet making environmentally-conscious choices.
The Prince of Wales is also planning to stage an open-air green extravaganza, it was revealed. Charles, who has warned that climate change is the greatest challenge facing man, is hoping to host the environmental event in 2010.
It is designed to rival Prince Albert’s Great Exhibition of 1851, London’s Evening Standard newspaper reported.
Hyde Park – where Charles’s great-great-great grandfather’s exhibition was held – is a possible venue
“It’s being considered for 2010. It’s all in the very early stages.”
Lets hope we all understand Prince Charles message that none of us should wish to go the way of the of the Dodo!
Myrea has now developing her Frogsworld website to give an extra boost to Prince Charles and his frog message .
