Are humans a plague on the Earth? Most people probably don’t think so. But at least one leading environmentalist, Sir David Attenborough of England, believes we are. And his reason? That we humans are threatening the extinction of every other species by using up all of the world’s resources. As reported in London’s Daily Telegraph, Sir Attenborough, who is a television presenter on the BBC, said that governments everywhere need to spend more money on sex education and voluntary family planning – particularly in the developing world where he believes there are just too many people. Hmmmm, one wonders if Sir Attenborough considers himself a part of this worrisome human plague.
