Prince Charles Pulls an Al Gore: Set to Release Book and Movie on Environment

05/22/2009 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

The Prince of Wales is to make a scathing attack on big business' environmental impact with the launch of a new book and documentary film. The book, called Harmony, is due to be published in 2010 by HarperCollins and the prince is reportedly waiving his author's fee, although royalties will go to his charitable foundation, The Prince's Trust. In an echo of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth, which evolved from a slideshow presentation into a hit eco documentary, the prince's film is currently being shot in the US. The prince is working on the book with co-authors Ian Skelly and ex- Friends of the Earth director Tony Juniper. 1

In some of our actions we now behave as if we were masters of nature and, in others, as mere bystanders. Charles will team up with former director of green charity Friends of the Earth Tony Juniper to help create the book and film. Publisher HarperCollins says the prince's book will argue humans have become dangerously disconnected from nature through their relentless pursuit of economic growth and technological progress. It's expected to draw on Charles' experience as an organic farmer, with scenes in the documentary to be filmed on his Highgrove estate 2
