PRESENTER 2: So David, please scare us
DAVID: Well humans are destroying the world they live in through carbon emissions, deforestation and uncontrolled urban expansion
PRESENTER 2: This sounds terrible
DAVID: If we do nothing we are heading for more extreme weather events and a 5-degree increase (on average) in temperatures. In practical term an extension event
