Charles delivers a prince of a speech

Whether you think the Prince of Wales is just an ecological hypocrite or not, you have to admit his speech yesterday at the Future of Food conference at Georgetown University was inspiring. It even led some rather cynical soldiers in the sustainable/organic food campaign to offer praise.

“I was actually really impressed with Prince Charles’s speech,” said Washington-based writer Samuel Fromartz, author of Organic, Inc.

The speech generated a lot of buzz on Twitter, too, with a number of people requesting that The Washington Post provide a copy of the speech online. Your wish is our command. You can read the entire transcript here (His Royal Highness did take a few liberties with the speech, but not many). You can also watch a short excerpt in the video above.

Comments, of course, are welcome.

Tim Carman serves as the full-time writer for the Post's Food section and as the $20 Diner for the Weekend section, a double duty that requires he ingest more calories than a draft horse.
