David Attenborough says now is our "last chance" to address climate change

"My lot are dying off, and we are the ones who caused the problem."

David Attenborough has said that now is the world's last chance to tackle climate change, insisting that the youth of today can be the ones to address the issue.


In a BBC interview, 93-year-old Attenborough highlighted certain countries he believes are doing more than others with regards to climate change, and pinpointed the one bit of advice he would give to try and tackle the issue.

"Stop waste. Stop waste of any kind. Stop wasting power, stop wasting food, stop wasting plastic. Don't waste this precious world. Celebrate and cherish," he said.

"This is the last chance... This is the biggest problem humanity has faced ever. Please respond."

The full interview makes for a fascinating watch, and can be seen below:
