If you aren’t familiar with Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed, let us introduce you. He is the son of the famously wealthy Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud who has been affectionately called the Warren Buffett of Saudi Arabia. He lived a lavish life until something changed him forever. He was on an exotic hunting trip and was so disgusted by the “cowardly” practice, he went vegan. His move to a plant-based diet also prompted him to question other aspects of his lavish life and became fixated his country’s role in climate change.

Saudi Arabia is the world’s largest producer of crude oil and over 90 percent of the nation’s revenue comes from the oil business but Khaled bin Alwaleed hopes to changes this. He has invested millions of dollars in an industrial solar panel factory and hopes that this clean energy will be able to replace fossil fuels in the future. In his most recent effort to promote clean energy, he has installed 100,000 LED lights across Amad Jordan along with solar panels to power them. The project is estimated to cut the local government power bills by as much as 60 percent.

Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed told The National Observer, “Climate change and the unjustified consumption of energy are two of the most serious issues we face today at the macro-level.” He has been speaking at various business forums about his vision fo Saudi Arabia’s clean energy economy – and Saudi Arabia is listening. His father recently announced $50 million investment Breakthrough Energy Ventures as part of a larger plan to put over one billion dollars into clean energy technologies. Saudi Arabia also signed on to the 2016 Paris Agreement and the oil-rich nation has announced that they will be completely rid of their oil dependency by 2035.

While Khaled bin Alwaleed’s effort to bring clean energy to the Middle East is inspiring, he’s not stopping at LED lights. He sees his fight for clean energy as directly linked to his vegan lifestyle. He told the National Observer, “Animal welfare, factory farming, the environment — usually they’re solvable if we look at things in an economic way, a humane way and a practical way rather than a greedy way.” And he is right.

The animal agriculture industry is responsible for 14.5 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions in the world which is more than the entire transportation industry. But by taking meat out of your diet, you can cut your carbon footprint in half. We should use Pince Khaled bin Alwaleed’s inspiring story as motivation in our lives. Whether it we are building solar panels or eating responsible, we can all work to address climate change on a personal level.

Hey guys, Get your ex back fast with the help of a real and genuine spell caster called Dr.Unity.
I\'m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored and my husband is back after a breakup, After 2 years of marriage, me and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me and moved to California to be with another woman. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really upset and i needed help, so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help get ex back fast. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a (Love spell) for me. 28 hours later, my husband really called me and told me that he miss me and the kids so much, So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and the kids. Then from that day,our Marriage was now stronger than how it were before,All thanks to Dr Unity. he is so powerful and i decided to share my story on the internet that Dr Unity real and powerful spell caster who i will always pray to live long to help his children in the time of trouble, if you are here and you need your Ex back or your husband moved to another woman, do not cry anymore, contact this powerful spell caster now.

So its okay for them to be environmentally friendly but treat humans like crap. Their women are oppressed and do not have the same freedoms that many women have worldwide. I see nothing good about this and he is not a wonderful prince! Are you kidding me!!!!

I totally agree. I am happy he\'s vegan. I am happy he\'s doing his share to better the planet. But really? Praising him? I just don\'t get it.
