Sir David Attenborough’s Most Important Piece of Advice | Netflix
A broadcaster recounts his life, and the evolutionary history of life on Earth, to grieve the loss of wild places and offer a vision for the future.

  • How about lab grown meat ? Seems like about time , I hope business , large corporations and government do the right ethical things because at the consumer end we are largely ignorant and unaware about how the products we’re buying are impacting the earth it is hidden unless we dig further and most people are focusing on their survival.

  • This doesn't make sense if we all start eating plants they will need to cut down more land to provide products. The more land they need for planting the more habitat destruction they cause. I think we should balance between meat and plants. If we can balance it will help but having everyone eat plants will cause immense damage as well and take a lot of homes away from animals who need it. Animals are already going extinct due to habitat loss because farmers are expanding their farms. BALANCE IS WHAT WE NEED!

  • IF YOU WILL NOT LISTEN TO VEGANS THEN LISTEN TO DAVID ATTENBOROUGH. The only arguments that there are against veganism are ignorant, ill informed or emotional ones.

  • Going vegan won’t change the issues. Whilst over farming does contribute heavily to the issue, it can be resolved rather easily is communities rely upon their local butcher for meat rather than a supermarket. The problem isn’t particularly what we are doing, it is the scale in which we are doing it. This is what needs to be addressed. But the ironic thing is, we can reduce the farming space, and replace them with trees just to be torn down in 20 years for a new highway. Unfortunately there are too many humans who’s list for wealth outweighs their desire for the planet, as hard as he tries, Sir David is fighting a losing battle.

    • @LJ Star it doesn’t. Diminishing a supermarket groups meat supply will impact farming areas. Don’t forget that a vast majority of supermarkets meat doesn’t even come from this country, they get it from Europe because it is battery farmed and cheap. So by massively reducing a super markets meat range you are also reducing the demand from the source. You misinterpreted my theory, you won’t need to open more butchers nor will you be have to create more farming space, because you will be reducing the amount of meat available. Local butchers only source meat from a few local trusted farms, not 50 odd like supermarkets (also remember half of it comes from overseas) so it would be a double whammy as the shipping of such products would also be reduced. Also, the UK’s farming regulations are better than most around the world, it is on the whole ecologically friendly and actually has some benefits due to their treatment of the soil and grasslands. I’m not a vegan no, and I never would be. But I have absolutely nothing against vegans either as I have friends who are vegan, people life choices are their choices. The point I am trying to make is I don’t like the finger pointing, and “outing” when frankly the real scientific data does not back it up. For example the show “game changers” was absolutely shocking, littered with incorrect information, shoddy evidence and produced and made by plant based organisations peddling plant based diets in order to help their products. (Which is no different to McDonald’s) The point is there is a culmination of issues that have caused the planets decline, not just one, and the culprit is not one thing, it is everything pretty much every thing humans do has had a direct impact on the planet. For one there is too many of us, we’re growing at a rapid rate, and there simply is not enough of the earths natural resources available to keep up, because of this more land is needed to build living and working spaces so more wild areas are removed, more supermarkets are needed, which means more food is needed, which means more fields are stripped bare etc... there needs to be whole sale changes, but they need to be changes not eradication’s. Just turning vegan won’t eliminate the issue, what about the over production of power? What about our consuming of fossil fuels, what about the logistical companies shipping products all over the world? The vast growing of populations? The poachers tearing down forest and killing animals for sport? Problem is, this has not been a secret, it’s been common knowledge for years that our actions have been damaging the planet, the real question is why are we now scrambling around trying to find solutions, when then the evidence has been brewing since the end of the Second World War?

    • @Chris Callaghan in your version of the world, the problem simply gets moved. Given the number of meat eating population (demand), you create hundreds of thousands, if not millions of local butchers. They will need to create the farming space more locally somehow. The animal farming industry won't magically get smaller and the environment will still need to be "adjusted" so that the land could be farmed. I Suspect you're a meat eater (which is fine, your choice) and you're justifying it by claiming going to the local butcher somehow changes things. You say "going vegan won't change the issue", which is funny because going Vegan directly tackles the problem by stopping the cycle, at least on an individual basis. Something that going to the local butcher doesn't do. About your last point...yes everything is business focused whether it's the plant eating industries or meat eating industries...doesn't matter. Let's not forget that this is also an issues of speciesm and an every day intraspecies holocaust happening all over the world where billions of animals get slaughtered every day. Locally or not it doesn't matter to me. I'd rather my money go to plant eating industries that support Attenborough than to the other side, but that's just me.

    • @LJ Star neither of you clearly have an idea of how large scale farming works then do you? Of course it will make a difference.... supermarkets source they meat from about 50 farms, world wide I might add... that’s just one supermarket group.... so if one post code stopped buying meat from their super market and resorted to a local butcher they need to use 50 odd farms world wide would diminish, where a butcher will use one or two trusted farms, rather that over 50 odd... of course this makes a difference, it reduces the air mileage and it reduces the amount of farm land being utilised. Anyway, it’s actually not the main issue at all, like I said, the biggest issue is humans removing large wild areas to install either living space or industrial space... don’t forget they Netflix is an uncensored platform that allowed shit like “The game changers” to be aired, David is a presenter, whom happens to be passionate about animals and the planet, it’s nothing more then organisations peddling plant based products again and paying him a large amount of money to say it, stick a cheque under anyone’s nose and they will say what you want them to.

    • How does the method of selling meat change the underlying issue? It's a simple issue of supply and demand. It won't change a thing if everyone starts going to their local butcher. The global demand will still be there and as a result so will the farming on a massive scale.

      LJ StarLJ Star8 dögum síðan
    • If everyone went to their local butcher instead of the supermarket that doesn't reduce the scale at all, because the demand for meat is exactly the same. That's why reducing or eliminating meat consumption is the most sustainable option

  • Thank you so much for sharing this. I will do my best to cut down on meat and try to be as green as i possibly can to save the planet. I want my daughter to have a great future and not have to worry about the endless possibilities of how this planet will be destroyed because of our actions. Can we please wipe out the rich power hungry people who do not care about the planet and civilians with a goal only to pocket more cash. Can we replace them with innovative young adults who do not care about war or race so we can build a better future for everyone. Life is so hard at the moment but we must remember there are other problems that we will face in the near future too. We must do all we can. ✊

    • I cant agree more. This documentary has the potential to save the human race from itself, i believe if enough people see it, David attenborough will be seen as the single most important man ever to have lived, right there above the likes of Einstein and Newton etc. I used to be massively ignorant to this stuff until I watched the documentary, attenborough lays it all out in front of you in a beautifully illustrated way, he shows you the reality of the points he's making so you really have no room to disagree with what he's saying. Although I dont think I would last long as a vegan/vegetarian (my health won't permit it, its a long story), I will now support anyone who does make that choice and I will try to encourage that attitude instead of arguing with them.

  • Carbon dioxide which plants breath is the gas of choice because it's the one that humans breath out. A huge life giving gas. The more co2 there is, the better it is. These criminals don't care though. "Locking away" Carbon is about the most evil and absurd thing to say. But since these people know that the average person now has an IQ that barely makes double digits, they can say absurd things like this and have imbeciles swallow it like mother's milk because David Attenborough said so. Absolutely *shocking*

  • "We" meaning the peasants, need to change "our" diet. These elites are pushing agenda 21 and pushing a nutritionally deficient diet on the 'useless eaters' as they call the lower classes. I *will* continue to eat meat. Attenborough is a criminal and needs to be tried for treason.

    • @mark roberts You're hilariously misinformed and sounding like you have an IQ of 70 all while defending your (incorrect) position. The same internal mechanism happens when talking to a religious fanatic about their faith. Your ego won't give it up. You love your meat so much it's become a part of your identity as a human being. You won't look at anything else, you're not interested in facts or anybody else's opinion. You will even find ridiculous conspiracy theories just to support your position. It's classic.
