David Attenborough, well known for his BBC television series Planet Earth and numerous films on natural history including Blue Planet says: “the Garden of Eden is no more”. He made this comment in reference to climate change while accepting a special environmental award at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

Sir David was later interviewed by Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, who was also attending the Swiss gathering. He expanded on his concerns for the potential of large scale ecological disruption."We are now so numerous, the mechanisms we have for destruction are so frightening, we can exterminate whole ecosystems without realizing it. We have to be careful."
