End of the world: David Attenborough sends ‘catastrophic’ warning: ‘Not false alarm!’

The legendary BBC presenter has sent a scathing warning to the richest nations ahead of the COP26 climate change talks.

Sir David was speaking at Kew Gardens in London during filming for a new landmark series, The Green Planet, to be aired next year. He told the BBC that the world faces a “really catastrophic” doomsday scenario if there is no action, adding there is a “moral responsibility” on them now.

Sir David stressed the recent IPCC report, that issued a “code red” for humanity over climate change proved that he and others had not been making “a fuss about nothing”.

He added: “What climate scientists have been saying for 20 years, and that we have been reporting upon, you and I both, is the case – we were not causing false alarms.

“And every day that goes by in which we don’t do something about it is a day wasted. And things are being made worse”.

But he said the report had not convinced everyone and that they are acting as a brake on efforts to tackle climate change.

“There are still people in North America, there are still people in Australia who say ‘no, no, no, no, of course, it’s very unfortunate that there was that forest fire that absolutely demolished, incinerated that village, but it’s a one-off’.

“Particularly if it’s going to cost money in the short term, the temptation is to deny the problem and pretend it’s not there.

“But every month that passes, it becomes more and more incontrovertible, the changes to the planet that we are responsible for that are having these devastating effects.

“If we don’t act now, it will be too late. We have to do it now.”

And he did not stop there. Sir David highlighted some of the impacts that will be seen in the short term.

He said: “Whole parts of Africa are likely to be unliveable – people will simply have to move away because of the advancing deserts and increasing heat, and where will they go? Well, a lot of them will try to get into Europe.

“Do we say, ‘Oh, it’s nothing to do with us’ and cross our arms?

“We caused it – our kind of industrialisation is one of the major factors in producing this change in climate. So we have a moral responsibility.

Sir David was echoing the thoughts of many scientists – who last week revealed 99% of them agree humans have caused climate change.

How it is dealt with now is imperative, or it could risk human extinction and the end of the world as we know it.

While past extinctions have been due to primarily volcanic eruptions and meteorites, the sixth major extinction is forecasted to be from human behaviours.

Climate change is occurring at an alarming rate – studies by the IPCC show that it is estimated that the temperature will rise from about 1.4C to 5.5C if action is not taken.

Add yours

  1. Bunch of hogwash. There is no valid proof that man caused or causes dramatic temp changes. Rather, science and history show a cyclical evolution, up and down, throughout time. Volcanos may alter air current flows, and quality of air in the short term, but changes, high and low have been happening from earliest of studies and recorded events,events, industrialization did not exist. This is a UN driven propaganda to aid 8n fully enacting AGENDA 21, AKA AGENDA 30.

  2. When are you people going to acknowledge GOD???? He is in charge of the heavens and the earth, GOD and GOD alone will destroy earth as promised in the Bible for a new heaven and a new earth! STOP THE MADNESS! And if your so worried about it, why don’t you ground the elites from driving 45 limos and huge sun’s for 1 stupid man!!!!! Jets from all countries spewing gas to get to a climate summit???? Really? You think we are that stupid??? THINK AGAIN!!!!!

  3. Man has nothing to do with Weather change, it is just cycles in the weather. It has been getting warmer since the last Ice age.
    Politicians are only using Weather change to gain more power. Politicians are liars, mainly democrats and liberals.
