In a recent Radio Times interview, naturalist and “Planet Earth” narrator David Attenborough calls humanity “a plague upon the earth.”  Not a good choice of words. Yet, isn’t this just the logical conclusion of extreme environmentalism – valuing nature over humanity? From such a perspective, humanity is like an infection rapidly spreading across the face of the earth. Attenborough says we must “curb the spread or face the consequences.”
