Today’s talking point


SIR David Attenborough, 94, has admitted that TV viewers may be switching off his doomladen output predicting climate change catastrophe.

He told Radio Times that his latest BBC series, Attenborough’s Life in Colour, was about rejoicing in wildlife and the natural world, and added: ‘I’m doing plenty of “woe is me” programmes at the moment.’ 

Yet the very next day Sir David was at it again, warning the UN Security Council that climate change threatens to cause a disaster ‘of First World War proportions, as people fight over resources’.

Leaving aside the point that the Great War was caused by politics, not a shortage of resources, is it time for ‘national treasure’ Sir David to take his own advice that incessant doom-mongering may be counterproductive and stop nagging?
