Nature can be source of solace in crisis, says David Attenborough
The natural world can be a source of solace during times of crisis, Sir David Attenborough has said.
Speaking about the climate, the broadcaster and naturalist, 93, said the world was at an unprecedented point.
He told Big Issue magazine: “In times of crisis, the natural world is a source of both joy and solace. The natural world produces the comfort that can come from nothing else. And we are part of the natural world. If we damage the natural world, we damage ourselves.”
He also said he had cause for hope: “Kids these days are knowledgeable, aware of what’s happening, and are concerned. They are vocal. I haven’t known a generation of children that could be placed alongside these today.”
