Time to turn off?

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - COMMENT -

“David At­ten­bor­ough’s na­ture pro­grammes are mag­nif­i­cent, but are pe­ri­od­i­cally spoilt for me by his lectures on man-made cli­mate change,” says a Perthshire reader.

“I switch off when he starts on that. “The other morn­ing, I had just booked my record­ings for the day and was about to switch off, when David’s face ap­peared on the screen. The sound was off, but the sub­ti­tles were on and they read: ‘cli­mate change.’

“He never gives up. We should look af­ter our en­vi­ron­ment and there is cli­mate change, I agree, but is it man­made? Has David never heard of the enor­mous cli­mate changes which took place long be­fore mere hu­man be­ings ar­rived on this Earth, nor of the many mini-ice ages we have had since then? Man-made? I don’t think so.”
