Attenborough urges renewable energy action

English broadcaster and naturalist backs plan for gathering, storing and distributing non-polluting sources of energy.

    David Attenborough, English broadcaster and naturalist, has called on world leaders to take action on climate change, urging nations to support a plan for gathering, storing and distributing non-polluting sources of energy. 

    In an interview with Al Jazeera's Nick Clark, Attenborough warned that if the trend continues and global warming worsens, many sources of livelihood, including marine resources, will be depleted.

    He said that by tapping renewable energy, climate change will be contained. 

    Attenborough is part of the Global Apollo project calling for the use solar power and other renewable energy through publicly funded research.
