David Attenborough: ‘The collapse of our civilizations is on the horizon’

Speaking at the opening ceremony of the COP24 UN climate conference, in Katowice, Poland, Attenborough called climate change “our greatest threat in thousands of years.”

In the weeks leading up to the event, the UN asked people to send their thoughts on climate change. Attenborough was there to represent the public, by taking the “People’s Seat” at the conference.

He said: “The world’s people have spoken. Their message is clear. Time is running out. They want you — the decision makers — to act now.

Leaders of the world you must lead,” he added. “The continuation of our civilizations and the natural world on which we depend is in your hands.”
