Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting
population growth, according to Sir David Attenborough.
The television presenter said that humans are threatening their own existence
and that of other species by using up the world’s resources.
He said the only way to save the planet from famine and species extinction is
to limit human population growth.
“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.
