How the country’s top environmentalists would tackle climate crisis

Sir David Attenborough has told this programme he believes that climate change will mean that the latest generation of young children are likely to see civil unrest, mass migration and a lack of choice in the food they eat.

The broadcaster and natural historian also said it was shameful that the Conservative leader Boris Johnson didn’t take part in last night’s climate emergency leaders’ debate on Channel 4.

The Conservatives have accused Channel 4 News of a “provocative partisan stunt” over the decision to “empty chair” Boris Johnson after he declined to take part.

But some of the country’s biggest environmental groups were there – in the spin room after the debate – with their own proposals on how to tackle the crisis.
