Richard Attenborough is famous for playing Ghandi and Chaplin among other movies. Everyone recognizes those two characters, Ghandi being the pacifist who managed to liberate India from the British and Chaplin the comedic tramp character that became popular during the movie industry's infancy.
Richard Attenborough has a younger brother called David who says that Climate change is the major challenge facing the world. Richard Attenborough did produce some nature programs for television and acted in a few minor unknown films.
I have two comments first about global warming and the second about minor actors stating major scientific conclusions.
Global warming, whether true or not is good for me as a Kuwaiti and Kuwait. Kuwait's intense summers have cooled down and are now bearable and our previous extremely short Winter and Autumn period are now much longer. Kuwait is getting rain showers as late as May which would have never happened 20 years ago and the dust storms are less intense. I can see more greenery in Kuwait when it was previously all sand and rocks. Our customer nations that buy our oil are experiencing severe winters and hotter summers, therefore increasing their demand for oil which helps us sell more oil and raises the price of oil because of increased demand.
If Global Warming is true, then we need more of it.
Now why do we listen to actors when they spout scientific truths, they do not have the knowledge, the research discipline or the complete facts. They make statements and we just digest them.
Anyway, have an excellent weekend.
