Two of the great voices in the fight against the climate crisis will meet in an interview on the BBC Radio 4 "Today" show, when teenage activist Greta Thunberg will interview Sir David Attenborough.
Attenborough has previously defended the young Nobel Peace Prize nominee from the vicious criticism she has received.
“There will be cynics who try to dismiss [the school strikers] and say they don’t understand the world and how it works,” Attenborough said in the interview, released in a podcast on Friday by Figueres’s Global Optimism group. “Young people may lack experience but they also have clear sight.”
“They can see perhaps more clearly than the rest of us who have been around for some time,’” he said. “We older ones should take notice of what they say.”
"Greta Thunberg is there because of her passion, her insight and her concern about the future," Attenborough told The Huffington Post.
The BBC Radio 4 "Today" interview will take place on December 30 at 6 a.m. (1 a.m. ET)
