SIR DAVID Attenborough has warned that polar bears might go extinct and ANOTHER main pandemic might hit if we don’t deal with local weather change.
Writing in his new ebook, A Life on Our Planet, Sir Attenborough predicts a lifetime of floods, drought and the ocean turning to acid if the planet isn’t saved.

For these born in the present day, the pure historian predicts various seemingly terrifying situations that the following era might face.
Within the decade starting in 2030, after years of deforestation and the unlawful burning within the Amazon basin, the world’s largest rainforest could possibly be decreased by 75 per cent.
“Decreased rainfall would trigger water shortages in cities and droughts within the farmlands created by the deforestation. Meals manufacturing can be radically affected,” Sir Attenborough wrote.
“The biodiversity loss can be catastrophic.
“Species which will have given us medicine, new foodstuffs and industrial purposes could also be gone.”
With international warming driving up the Earth’s temperature, the thaws within the Arctic are beginning earlier and the freezes are coming later.
It’s fairly potential that one 12 months, the summer season can be simply that little bit longer, and the cubs born that 12 months might be so small that they can not survive their first polar winter.

Which means the polar bear, who depends on the northern sea ice to hunt seals, will start to die off.
Sir Attenborough wrote: “Because the ice-free interval lengthened, scientists detected a worrying pattern.
“Pregnant females, drained of their reserves, had been now giving beginning to smaller cubs.
“It’s fairly potential that one 12 months, the summer season can be simply that little bit longer, and the cubs born that 12 months might be so small that they can not survive their first polar winter.

“That entire inhabitants of polar bears would then crash.”
With local weather change persevering with into the 2050s, your entire ocean would turn out to be completely acidic because of “carbon dioxide forming carbonic acid to set off a calamitous decline.”
The center of the 2050s can be the top for the remaining industrial fisheries and fish farming around the globe.
Sir Attenborough predicts that huge crop failure will strike within the 2080s which is able to convey one other pandemic.
World meals manufacturing will hit a disaster level after centuries of intensive agriculture including an excessive amount of fertiliser to the soil rendering it exhausted and lifeless.
The dearth of meals may even be made worse with the emergence of one other pandemic.

“We’re solely simply starting to know that there’s an affiliation between the rise of emergent viruses and the planet’s demise.
“The extra we proceed fracturing the wild with deforestation, the enlargement of farmland and the actions of the unlawful wildlife commerce, the extra seemingly it’s that one other pandemic would come up.”
However Sir Attenborough claims that the entire options are “inside our grasp” and there are a variety of “steps we are able to take and objectives we should obtain to avert the approaching disaster.”
Regardless of the predictions, the 94-year-old believes there are a variety of options to cease the disasters[/caption]
