He's always come across as an honest fellow who really cares about our reckless SLAUGHTER OF DIVERSITY on this profit-ruined planet. And he hasn't mellowed with age. Here's what he said in a recent interview with the Radio Time.
Sir David Attenborough has warned that the human race has become a "plague on the Earth".
The 86-year-old broadcaster said the negative effects of climate change and population growth would cause disaster within next 50 years.
He told the Radio Times: "It's coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change. It's sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now.
"We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia - that's what's happening. Too many people there. They can't support themselves - and it's not an inhuman thing to say. It's the case.
"Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a co-ordinated view about the planet, it's going to get worse and worse." [source YAHOO NEWS]
AND HE'S RIGHT, there are too many of us. It's a fact. Not just for the reason of over-population but more essentially for the reason of squeezing out ALL THE OTHER FORMS OF LIFE into less and less space. Take the plight of the tigers, who now have little patches of Indian forest to roam in, when they need hundreds of square kilometers. What about badger culls? What about seal culls? What about the Siberian wolf cull? What about the stripping of the forests of the world, the planet's lungs!
Mankind is a petrified, petty and pathetic microbe or tummy bug or gnat, he's quivering behind his Elite Masters and allowing them to shit all over his once-beautiful planet, IN THE NAME OF PROFIT.
Never forget that, in this seemingly-haunting Eugenics-like debate; humans are slaves to debt, slaves to the repayment of a bank's investments in failed commercial ideas or products (like PPI and Bad Mortgages and Currency). Global Warming really has nothing to do with this real concern, it's more about, "Where have all the different species of plant and animal gone in the last hundred years?" and isn't it all down to the Commercialisation of Asset i.e. corporate conquest.
David Attenborough says, "There are too many of you," and he's right - but it's been drummed into man's consciousness over successive years of rubbish health care for farmers and religious indoctrination. Who the fuck wants a family of ten or fifteen children? Don't they even THINK that those ten or fifteen children might wanna spawn families of their own at some point?
It's just simple mathematics. And the over-population issue is dealt with in the most dishonest of fashions, "We let those poor billions starve to death," that's how we deal with it.
Instead of CLUBBING TOGETHER as a global race of survivalists (this world is a dangerous place, after all; meteors, asteroids, droughts, floods, earthquakes) who can allow the Diversity of Nature to return, mankind is shitting himself, clinging to his pathetic belief systems like some sort of life saver. It'll not save your life, it'll just end up KILLING YOUR HOME, your one living (free) planet.
