Sir David Attenborough sends grim warning to world leaders

The world's most famous and, arguably, most revered environmentalist sent a grim warning to urged world leaders meeting in Poland this week.

Sir David Attenborough urged world leaders to find ways ways to limit global warming, calling the issue “our greatest threat in thousands of years”.

“Leaders of the world, you must lead,” said Sir David. “The continuation of our civilisations and the natural world upon which we depend, is in your hands,” he said.

“Climate change is running faster than we are and we must catch up sooner rather than later before it is too late.

“Right now, we are facing a man-made disaster of global scale. Our greatest threat in thousands of years. Climate Change.

“If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.”

Do I take advice from someone who spends their time sitting behind a desk and forming theory, or someone who has spent most of their life out and about getting hands on experiance?

Not really a hard question to answer.

If I have to have another operation I would probably choose a surgeon who has done a few actual operations over one that has completed hundreds on a computer whilst sitting on their bums in an office.

How do scientists gain the knowledge they need to form theories, by observation and notation, who has been dong that most of his life, I won't insult people by answering that question.

I think the climate has been changing since time began BUT there are too many people on the planet and we are selfish and uncaring and we are ruining the planet via putting money 1st and filling the eath with poisons etc -- making other creatures extinct which is not helping one bit
