“This is not about saving the planet; it’s about saving ourselves.”
The famous historian and naturalist, Sir David Attenborough, is famous for his love and respect of the natural world.
He is responsible for narrating many revered documentaries about the animals and plants with whom we share this world.
Recently, as he nears 100 years old, he has started to take a more outspoken tone in regards to the way that humans are treating the Earth. His recent documentary “A Life on Our Planet” highlights the ways in which we are destroying mother nature and posits the question of how we can still save ourselves.
Discuss the following topics:
- The meat industry’s impact on our planet
- Farmland for animals, the number of crops and water used to sustain the animals we farm, and the damage of waste and gas released by these animals
- Being a vegetarian / vegan
- The extinction of various species and the rapid rate with which it is happening
- The impact of global warming
- The disconnect between what we know and how we act
- The world we leave behind for our children
