  • Renowned English broadcaster and natural historian Sir David Attenborough delivered a stark warning about the future of our planet during the UN Climate Change Summit in Poland, Monday. 
  • Attenborough warned that the world’s survival depends on swift action to prevent climate change.
  • “If we don’t take action, the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon,” he said.
  • Attenborough’s speech comes at a crossroad for global climate action. Over the weekend, 19 G20 member states reaffirmed their commitment to the Paris climate accord — except for the US, which has cast doubt on climate science assessments. 
  • But the human-led impact of climate change is already being observed around the world — from extreme weather events to devastating fires.
