“You are in charge of global nature. Let’s just assume for a second. And I’m in charge of the global economy, just for a second. What’s the connection between us?”
“Financial systems, which of course I don’t understand and you do. But, financial systems have a lot in common with the natural world systems. Both are economies. Both, for example, if you deal with your investment with your capital, it’s fine as far as I understand these things, it’s fine if you can take take the profit and take the investment. But, you wouldn’t be so silly as to eat into the capital? Would you not? But that is what we’re doing with the natural world all the time.”

5. SOUNDBITE: (English) Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund and David Attenborough, Broadcaster
“Hands up. You raised your hand, so I have hope too.”
“And why? Because young people understand these situations better than they have done in my lifetime and young people today are saying to those of us who’ve got hands on power, ‘Do something and we will support you.’ That’s why I have hope.”
