Scientist David Attenborough Says Collapse Of Civilization Is “On The Horizon"

During the UN climate change summit this week, Sir David Attenborough warned of the collapse of human civilization.

Human civilization is on the brink of collapse and poised to take much of the natural world down with it if climate change is not adequately and immediately addressed, Sir David Attenborough said during the UN climate change summit in Poland this week.

Via The Guardian:

The naturalist was chosen to represent the world’s people in addressing delegates of almost 200 nations who are in Katowice to negotiate how to turn pledges made in the 2015 Paris climate deal into reality.

As part of the UN’s people’s seat initiative, messages were gathered from all over the world to inform Attenborough’s address on Monday. “Right now we are facing a manmade disaster of global scale, our greatest threat in thousands of years: climate change,” he said. “If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilisations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.”

Attenborough said: “The world’s people have spoken. Time is running out. They want you, the decision-makers, to act now. Leaders of the world, you must lead. The continuation of civilisations and the natural world upon which we depend is in your hands.”

Climate change is slow, subtle, complex, and frightening. In fact, most people cannot accept it. Frozen in denial, they refuse to take action to halt the Great Mass Extinction that looms ahead.
