Jeremy Clarkson has blasted the BBC and David Attenborough for stuffing the latest Planet Earth series with climate change propaganda, saying he “hates” the show and urging a change in direction. The Mail has more.
The Grand Tour host admitted that while he’s been captivated by the new BBC series, he found the script “insane”.
Clarkson wrote in his column with the Sun: “Oh the photography is brilliant. Spellbinding even. But the words are driving me insane.”
The outspoken broadcaster then pointed out that despite once admiring Attenborough’s in-depth knowledge of animals, he now feels his mission to educate viewers on the impact of global warming has become a bit repetitive.
He wrote: “Now all we ever get is, ‘Here’s a see-through fish with an orange stomach, and it’s future is threatened by climate change’, and then it’s: ‘Here’s something with pointy teeth and soon it will be wiped out by global warming.’
