We could wreck natural world, David Attenborough tells Prince William per BBC News
The BBC report
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-46957085 on their hero David Attenborough speaking at Davos:
'Sir David Attenborough has told Prince William that people have never been more "out of touch" with the natural world than they are today.
In an interview with the prince at the World Economic Forum, the naturalist warned: "We can wreck it with ease, we can wreck it without even noticing."
Sir David said people must care, respect and revere the natural world.
Heeding his words, the prince said: "Work to save the planet is probably going to largely happen on our watch".
Sir David, 92, said: "When I started 60 years ago in the mid-50s, to be truthful, I don't think there was anybody who thought that there was a danger that we might annihilate part of the natural world."
In his early career, he said, simply showing people a new animal on television would astound them.
Even then, he added: "Television in Britain in the 50s was only seen by a few million people in southern England."
Speaking in Davos, Switzerland, the Blue Planet and Dynasties narrator said: "We can go everywhere, we can go into the bottom of the sea, we can go into space, we can use drones, we can use helicopters, we can use macroworlds, we can speed things up, we can slow things down, we can film in the darkness - and so the natural world has never been exposed to this degree before."'
Meanwhile take a look at the previous piece on the increasing private jets being used. Take a look at the Guardian article linked from my previous article too but don't expect little other from the BBC other than the standard brainwashing.
