    Default David Attenborough to Publish 'Witness Statement' On Climate Crisis

    Alison Flood
    May 28 2020

    David Attenborough is to publish his “vision for the future” of Earth this autumn, laying out “the dreadful damage” done by humanity, and the ways “we can begin to turn things round”.

    A Life on Our Planet, which the 94-year-old has described as his “witness statement”, will cover his career documenting the natural world and his first-hand observations of the decline of the planet’s environment and biodiversity, as well as possible solutions.

    Was not familiar with "David Attenborough"?? He's a broadcaster & historian. Wonder how much attention he will attract with his "witness statement," given his credentials. We should all know by now the horrible things we've done, and continue to do, to our environment. Heard recently that PPE articles are now increasingly showing up in our waterways.

    He is one of Britain's national treasures - he made what must be hundreds of nature programmes, and is still going in his 90's. Is he not well known in the US? I call him St David!

    Julieanne: Thanks for the addt'l info. For some reason, Attenborough's work has escaped my attention. You've made me now sufficiently curious about St. David.

    He is certainly well-known, even to me. A long career, highly respected. I look forward to reading his book… Although some things cannot be reversed. Extinction is forever.
    Mr. Wizard, you surprise me. In this case you may be an outlier!
