HOPE FOR THE PLANET

First News - - Front Page -

ALTHOUGH there’s been a lot of bad news for the en­vi­ron­ment in re­cent years, Sir David At­ten­bor­ough says there are “signs of hope” for the planet.

The pop­u­lar TV pre­sen­ter says that the at­ti­tudes of gov­ern­ments are slowly chang­ing and that politi­cians are start­ing to un­der­stand how se­ri­ous en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues are.

“There has been a world­wide shift, I think, among peo­ple in gen­eral about the con­cern there should be for the nat­u­ral world,” he said. “I am en­cour­aged more than I have been for some time.”

Even though US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has pulled Amer­ica out of the Paris cli­mate change agree­ment, Sir David thinks that the deal is “an­other big ad­vance”.

Sir David will be back on our screens later this year, in Blue Planet II, the se­quel to the ground-break­ing 2001 BBC se­ries that showed life in the oceans like never be­fore.
