Legendary documentary maker David Attenborough has issued a scathing attack on the human race, saying that we are a plague on the Earth. David says that, the sooner we sort ourselves out, the better the Earth will become.
Attenborough told the Radio Times, “We are a plague on the Earth. It's coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change; it's sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now.”
He added, “We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia; that's what's happening. Too many people there. They can't support themselves – and it's not an inhuman thing to say. It's the case. Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a co-ordinated view about the planet it's going to get worse and worse.”
David Attenborough, who is still travelling the World and making fantastic documentaries at the age of 86, has a new series called Natural Curiosities, which will premiere on the Eden channel in the UK next week.
