Kendal professor argues case on climate documentary

The science behind global warming will be examined by a Cumbrian climate change expert on television tonight.

Professor Mike Berners-Lee is appearing on Sir David Attenborough's latest environmental documentary for the BBC.

In a wide-ranging interview with Mike Zeller at Breakfast, the academic from Kendal praised the children and young people who've walked out of school to take part in Youth Strikes for Climate:

It's them doing their own thinking about the future for the world they are going to be in and their children are going to be in, so I'm totally supportive."
