Famous British naturalist and Malthusian misanthropist David Attenborough had one of his lies cut out of a documentary on Africa.
From the Guardian…….
The BBC removed part of Sir David Attenborough’s narration in the final episode of its flagship nature documentary Africa after it acknowledged it contained a mistaken claim about climate change.
In the original episode first broadcast last Wednesday, Attenborough said: “Some parts of the continent have become 3.5C hotter in the past 20 years.”
But following further scrutiny of this claim by the Guardian, it transpired that the ultimate source of the claim could not be readily verified.
Poor Davey can’t seem to stay out of the news lately. Just last month he was explaining how people are the scourge of the earth.
“We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times. …..
“We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia; that’s what’s happening. Too many people there. They can’t support themselves — and it’s not an inhuman thing to say. It’s the case. Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a coordinated view about the planet it’s going to get worse and worse.”
You never know if it is unmitigated stupidity or simply evil intent with these nutters.
