David Attenborough Says "Planet Is Headed For Disaster" In New Documentary

by | January 16, 2020

Sir David Attenborough has produced a new documentary — A Life On Our Planet — in which he tells viewers that “our planet is headed for disaster.”

A Life On Our Planet explores the environmental changes that have taken place on Earth since the 93-year-old natural historian has been alive. The documentary also proposes a number of ways to tackle climate change.

“I am David Attenborough, and I am 93. I’ve had the most extraordinary life. It is only now that I appreciate how extraordinary” he says in the trailer.

“The living world is a unique and spectacular marvel, yet the way we humans live on earth is sending it into a decline.”

“Human beings have overrun the world. We’re replacing the wild with the tame. This film is my witness statement and my vision of the future.”

The documentary will be released in cinemas on April 16 and will also screen on Netflix.

This is not the first time Attenborough has explored the climate crisis in his popular documentaries. Last year he presented Climate Change: The Facts for the BBC and narrated the Our Planet docuseries on Netflix.

The filmmaker has previously said humanity is facing “irreversible damage to the natural world and the collapse of our societies.”
