Melting ice caps, rising sea levels, loss of habitat, extinction of animals and insects, the disappearance of bees and other pollinators; many of us have some level of awareness of the climate and ecological crisis. And yet we continue driving cars and having babies. So do we really understand the impact of these environmental changes on our world? And if we do, how can we translate this understanding into action? This talk is an easy-to-follow look at the whole subject & possible solutions. Every time David gives this talk somebody says “everyone should hear this!”.

Meet the Host, David
David's always been fascinated by flight. As a boy he watched anything that flew, including birds, which led to his passion for wildlife and ultimately his vocation. David's been actively involved in nature conservation since 1984 and in 2007 received an MBE for “Services to wildlife” which he accepted on behalf of the wildlife charity he co-founded and still works for today. David's been public speaking for well over thirty years. He takes great care in preparing his presentations and has been humbled by the compliments they’ve received such as “brilliant”, “inspiring”, and “the best talk we’ve ever had”.

This is the best talk I have heard about the climate and ecological crisis. As a scientist, working on climate, I can confirm that David has put in an enormous amount of work "behind the scenes" to ensure that all that he conveys is factually correct. At the same time, David makes this challenging topic accessible to a wide audience. I warmly recommend this outstanding talk to everyone
