Monday’s quote

Since I missed posting yesterday (again!) I will offer a classic rock Two for Tuesday from Sir David Attenborough. Back in 1989 (before all this fancy internet stuff) I went to the library, found his address and wrote him a letter and he wrote me back a personal reply. 100% class! Ok, here we go:

“The truth is: the natural world is changing. And we are totally dependent on that world. It provides our food, water and air. It is the most precious thing we have and we need to defend it.”

“‎Using his burgeoning intelligence, this most successful of all mammals has exploited the environment to produce food for an ever increasing population. Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, perhaps it’s time we controlled the population to allow the survival of the environment.”
