Sir David Attenborough has made a blistering warning about “climate change” that “climate change is the biggest threat to security that modern humans have ever faced”
The 94-year-old scientist and broadcaster said the difference in the world’s temperature had “already reached the point that the impact on the poorest and most vulnerable people are profound”
Speaking via videolink at a United Nations Security Council meeting, the iconic environmental activist, 94, warned that “we have a moral responsibility” and “the security of the entire world depends on your decisions”
“from the communities uprooted by extreme weather and hunger, to warlords capitalising on the scramble for resources”Boris Johnson
Boris Johnson, who is leader of the meeting today, said a warming planet was pushing uncertainty from “the communities uprooted by extreme weather and hunger, to warlords capitalising on the scramble for resources”
It’s the first time Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has chaired a UN Security Council meeting on climate and security since 1992.
She said that investments in adaptation to climate change can strengthen peace and create social cohesion, and it is essential that global leaders pass resources directly to local groups, especially women and youth.
