Resolved Question: Why does Sir David
Couldn't some merely be deluded and confused?
Sir David Attenborough is one of the great naturalists of our time, celebrated for decades of peerless documentary making, an infectious love of the animal kingdom and that distinctive and enthusiastic whisper. Once criticized by campaigners for his reticence to address contentious issues, Attenborough is no longer willing to speak in hushed tones.
Sitting opposite the kangaroo enclosure at London Zoo, he told The Daily Beast he had lost patience with the “ignorance” of creationists, polluters, and climate change deniers. “To simply say that you must accept unquestioningly what you learned at your mother’s knee is not the act of an intelligent person,” he said.

Resolved Question: Research career like
I have always watched David Attenborough's documentaries, and like many other fans and biology enthusiasts have been inspired to bring about change or carry out further research. I understand that creating his documentaries involves extensive research -please note that my desire is not aimed at being on television- and my goal is to be a researcher in the field of animals (I understand this is extremely broad, but I hope you understand what I am trying to say). I am interested in the Earth sciences, animals and climate change. I am studying biology, chemistry and maths and have to chose a course to study at university next year. Would it be wise to study zoology or is there other courses which would be more useful? As my own research has come up short I am hoping that someone will have some experience similar to research and can help me! I'd like to do something with an emphasis on fieldwork rather than lab work! Thank you in advance!! My ultimate goal is to go to Antarctica and do research there (I know this is highly competitive but I just would like ideas of how to achieve that goal!)

Resolved Question: Why do some people prefer
why people want to look at David Attenbourough and hear his annoying ego centric voice instead of pay attention to more "Sober" commentary and view nature? how long has he been "popular"? and again why? what this transition to "reality type tv" has said about transition in our "Culture"?
