Queen Elizabeth says lack of climate action is “irritating”




The British monarch made the statements on Thursday during a conversation at the opening of the Welsh parliament in Cardiff.

The Queen was chatting with the Duchess of Cornwall and Elin Jones, the Speaker of Parliament, when her statements were captured on video.

“We need some of the biggest brains and minds in the world set on trying to repair this planet, without trying to find the next place to go and live,” he said.

His comments came the day after “Star Trek” actor William Shatner, 90, made history by becoming the oldest person to go into space aboard a New Shepard spacecraft. , developed by Blue Origin by Jeff Bezos.
