Sir David Attenborough at the Royal Society (video)
Sir David Attenborough is a personal hero of mine, and I can’t help but listen closely to what he says. He is so full of passion and insight, and is inspirational even while he tells us the awful truth of your situation on this planet. In this video from March 16 at the RSA, he talks about the current problems we have on earth, and points the finger sternly at the problem of population growth. If we don’t control our birth rates, the only alternative is an increased death rate. He makes some suggestions on how we can approach this problem, including access to family planning, reproductive rights and birth control, but he leaves it open to us to work out how we can achieve the ends.
This is a must-watch talk, so please take 20 of your time to do so.
