Obama stands up for wildlife
Telegraph, Friday 26th June 2015
President Barack Obama has met Sir David Attenborough in a rare encounter for a one-off television programme in which they discuss climate change. “Sadly we haven’t made as much progress as we need to on climate change,” said Mr Obama. “We’re not moving as fast as we need to.” Sir David agreed that adults lose the fascination with nature that is common among children. “A 5-year-old, turning over a stone and seeing a slug, and says, ‘What a treasure!’ Kids understand the natural world,” he said.
