David Attenborough to present new BBC film on climate change: 'If we do not take dramatic action, we could face the collapse of our societies'

(The Independent, 23 Mar 2019) Broadcaster has called climate change humanity's 'greatest threat' in thousands of years.

Sir David Attenborough will present an "urgent" new documentary on climate change for the BBC, it has been announced. 

Last year, the legendary broadcaster called climate change "humanity's greatest threat in thousands of years" at the opening ceremony of the UN climate change conference.

He warned it would lead to the collapse of civilisations and the extinction of "too much" of the natural world. 

The new one-off documentary will show footage that reveals the impact global warming has already had. Attenborough says conditions have changed "far faster" than he ever imagined when he first began speaking about the environment 20 years ago.
