ABC’s 7:30 tonight will screen an interview by triple J’s Tom Tilley in which naturalist Sir David Attenborough takes at recent Australian climate policy.
He expressed concerns that previous Australian governments had been “saying all the right things” on climate policy but this had changed.
“You are the keepers of an extraordinary section of the surface of this planet, including the Barrier Reef, and what you say, what you do, really, really matters,” Attenborough said.
“And when you’ve been upstanding and talking about what I see as the truth and and you suddenly say, ‘No it doesn’t matter … it doesn’t matter how much coal we burn … we don’t give a damn what it does to the rest of the world.”
