Prince William criticises billionaire space race after William Shatner's Blue Origin flight
The Duke of Cambridge says the focus should be on repairing the Earth, not trying to find "the next place to live".
In an interview ahead of his inaugural Earthshot Prize, the Duke of Cambridge told the BBC: "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."
If we don't have "some of the world's greatest brains and minds fixed on trying to repair this planet" there may be a reason. It is just possible that the climate game doesn't attract them. William could even ask himself why those great brains do not see the issue as important enough to take a professional interest in it.
