Rejecting the views that Australian bushfire was not caused by climate change, renowned naturalist and broadcaster David Attenborough has said that tragedy happened due to global warming. .
Sir David's comments came in a BBC News interview to launch a year of special coverage on the subject of climate change.
Attenborough said he felt it was "palpable nonsense" that some politicians and commentators had suggested that the country’s fire crisis had nothing to do with the world getting warmer.
“We have been putting things off for year after year,” he said, adding that human activity is behind the heating of the Earth.
"We have to realise that this is not playing games," he said.
