During an interview with “Radio Times,” Sir David Attenborough said shooting #Donald Trump wasn’t a bad idea if it saved the planet. The 90-year-old naturalist was talking about his new BBC series “Planet Earth II” and voicing his concerns about #Climate Change. Then the conversation moved to a conversation about the current #2016 Election.
When Attenborough was reminded of Trump’s 2012 tweet that said “climate change was created by and for the Chinese,” he said he was aware of that and reminded listeners that we’ve lived through previous presidents who were equally guilty. When asked if there were any other options and whether they had any power or sway over the U.S. election, he replied: “Of course we don’t.”
‘We could shoot him’
Then he giggled, lowered his distinctive voice, and said, “We could shoot him. It’s not a bad idea.” He then attacked voters who supported Brexit. He then questioned whether former Prime Minister David Cameron had the right to hold an EU referendum over Brexit in the first place.
When the Paris Climate Agreement passed, it allowed heavy carbon dioxide (CO2) emitter China to avoid participating in the accord until 2030. China is the biggest emitter of greenhouse gases, giving it a clear advantage in manufacturing. Other countries like the U.S. are required to cut CO2 emissions 26 to 28 percent below 2005 levels by 2025, which most experts say will avert global warming by 0.01 degrees.
