Sir David Attenborough to human race: Drop dead

Font Size:

Americans probably know Sir Richard Attenborough best for his role as Creepy Old Guy in Jurassic Park. And if his brother had his way, you’d got the way of the dinosaurs too. Yes, you.

The Telegraph:

Humans are a plague on the Earth that need to be controlled by limiting population growth, according to Sir David Attenborough.

The television presenter said that humans are threatening their own existence and that of other species by using up the world’s resources…

“We are a plague on the Earth. It’s coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It’s not just climate change; it’s sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now,” he told the Radio Times.

Presumably, Attenborough’s own children and grandchildren are exempted from this problem, as are the descendants of Sting, Al Gore, and every other lefty who has watched Soylent Green one too many times. Their use of the world’s resources is just fine, because it just is and you can shut up now.
